Carole Ann Lee is a native of Ohio. Along with their two children, Dave and Sharon, she resides with her own special hero who shares her crazy sense of humor and love for animals.
Extended family members include Dumper, their 10-year old cat. Their newest member, a Belgian Shepherd puppy named Hunter, and Nacoma, their daughter’s medicine hat paint horse who is just as much a part of the family and just as spoiled as the other pets.
Having always been fascinated by the thought of space travel, yet equally captivated by the romance of the tall sailing ships, Carole Ann’s goal has been to integrate the two worlds in a futuristic romance that sizzles with both high tech as well as the swashbuckling intensity of a high seas adventure.
Carole Ann began writing on a lark in the early nineties. In 1994, at a writer’s conference, she had the privilege of meeting and submitting BRIAN’S BONES to a New York editor. The results were positive when he expressed a serious interest and asked for the entire manuscript. Eleven months later, BRIAN’S BONES was on the shelves.
Both BRIAN’S BONES and SOLAR ECLIPSE have won awards in national writing contests. To name a few: In 1997 BRIAN’S BONES placed 2nd as an “already published work” in RWA’s “Heart of The West” contest. In that same contest SOLAR ECLIPSE also placed 2nd as “unpublished work by a published author”. See Awards.
Also in 1997 SOLAR ECLIPSE was entered into RWA’s “On The Far Side” contest where it took First Place.
