Connect with Carmen
I was born in Buffalo, New York, and had always planned to study law before I became a published author. While raising my children, I wrote my first book on legal pads and transcribed it onto a computer on weekends before I sold my first novel in 1993. Since then I’ve sold more than twenty six novels and novellas, and am proud that one of my books was made into a TV movie in 2001 – where I even had a cameo role!
As well as writing full-time, I’m a mom of four and a full-time student completing a masters degree in creative writing. I teach writing at a local community school one evening a week and I’m a founding member of the Femme Fantastik Tour, a group that tours military bases promoting literary works throughout the United States and Europe. In my spare time I like live music concerts, gardening, vacations in quiet tropical places and long cruises that don't require me to do anything but read, sleep and eat.
