Inviting you to share my writing journey with me!
It is a watery Angela’s Ashes. It is David Sedaris meets Tugboat Annie. Full of Zen-like wisdom and heartwarming dysfunction,
Dreamseeker’s Daughter will make you laugh, but it will also make you weep. The characters in this book rival the ones Mark Twain met on the Mississippi River. Borges gives us a picture of America in the 1950s through the eyes of an outsider. It is an inspiring story that teaches us to remember that chasing our dreams is what life is all about.
Carole is currently available for readings and for workshop presentations.
