Carol Ferring Shepley
After working as a professional writer for 53 years, I still pinch myself when someone calls me author. As a very young child, I liked nothing better than to sit on the lap of a parent or grandparent while they read to me. I stared at the words, those magic symbols that impart meaning, but they looked like ants walking across the page to me. When I started school, I couldn’t wait to learn to decipher letters and words. Reading continues to be my passion. To think that I am adding to the world’s literature gives me great joy. With every new book, I have learned a great deal. I want to present what I have learned in as interesting and entertaining a fashion as possible. Writing is hard work, but I feel blessed to have the opportunity to pursue it and doubly blessed that people read what I write.
