.I'm Carol and I'm so glad you stopped by. I began my writing journey late in life, but God has blessed me with remarkable people along the way. I have a wonderful team of writers, editors, and readers who encourage and spur me along as I share my stories.
I first wrote the story of Agnes several years ago as a short story. It ended when this unhappy widow walked away instead of facing some major issues, hers as well as those of her new friends. Then I realized the director of the home, Miss Johnson, had turned into a shady character. What would happen if Agnes decided to speak up?
And so it began. Along the writing journey, I listened to many seniors living in assisted-living homes faced with "adjusting" to a foreign environment. Some stories were tragic, others hilarious. I am indebted to my mother and daddy for freely sharing their experiences, both good and bad when they lived in a senior living facility
Meet Agnes Hopper,
a feisty senior who lives in a retirement home. Inspired by my mother, Agnes continues to delight and surprise me as I pen her stories.
Additional information on the Agnes Series may be found on my Books page.
I'm currently writing her third adventure,
