Great questions, great blog. Thanks for having me.
Carrie was raised in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs. When her parents divorced and she was diagnosed with degenerative Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 14, the need to write developed in the days that she was kept from school. She attended the University of Colorado, majoring in English Literature. Her honors thesis “Addiction, Narcissism, and Psychopathology in Wuthering Heights,” examines Brontë’s motivations, pre-Freudian thought, current psychological practice, and asking if Wuthering Heights is the love story that the literary world has portrayed. She loves reading Shakespeare, Christopher Moore, Toni Morrison, Rilke, Wordsworth, Austen, and Romantic period literature. She is working on her second novel, Empire, and still resides in Colorado Springs with her husband and two young children.
