Carol lived in South Yorkshire with her husband and daughter. Her own story was one of surviving against the odds. Since losing her mother to cancer at the age of 10, Carol avoided hospitals like the plague until just a few years ago, when doctors told her she was highly unlikely to survive bronchial pneumonia and a misdiagnosed pancreatic cancer. “It was during this time I started to chant in my mind that I was going to get better, because I had not fulfilled my dream to write a book. And the more ill I got, the louder the chanting got,” laughed Carol at the time.
Carol attended two Arvon courses on script writing and also went on two courses at Tilton House in Sussex, which were run by Nicola Larder (Tiger Aspect), Eleanor Moran (BBC writer and producer.)
Tragically, Carol passed away suddenly in May 2016. Her daughter, Emma, continues to promote Carol's work and is determined to make sure the world knows of her mother's incredible talents.
