Carolyn’s biological father had more than one family. Carolyn wasn’t fortunate enough to meet her half-sister before she died. But she was quite close to her full-blooded sister. She was just one of many strong women that Carolyn was fortunate enough to know.

Reading entered the author’s life at an early age. She was just five when she sparked an obsession with the written word. Once she realized that she could finally understand words and letters, the author started reading everything she could get her hands on, not just books but the words on the back of Cheerio boxes.

Once she learned to write, she started practicing the habit as well. As a budding author, Carolyn was drawn to romance. She believes that life revolves around emotions and relationships and she uses her stories to explore the themes.

She expects her ideas to resonate with readers from all backgrounds because she is convinced that love never changes. Settings and plots might change but love is always the same, and this is true for the reaction it elicits from people.

The author’s books are not quite as straightforward as people think. Carolyn endeavors to explore the different facets of the human experience, incorporating hate, laughter, anger, and every other emotion that defines human beings into her novels.

She wants to move her readers, to immerse them in the same emotions driving her heroes and heroines. The author’s success can be imputed to her worldly experience. Carolyn was 49 when she entered the publishing industry.

While she had experimented with fiction, it wasn’t until her third child came along that she started writing seriously. The child destroyed the author’s routine. Her sleeping schedule was very erratic. On occasion, Carolyne would stay up all night.

Rather than grumbling about the challenge, she used the peace and quiet to jot her ideas down in a notebook. Before long, she had a story on her hands. Unfortunately, she couldn’t find a publisher to buy it. In fact, Carolyn Brown spent twenty-five years trying and failing to get her foot through the publishing door.

It was quite a surprise when an editor finally called and revealed that she wanted to buy the author’s books. It was the big break the author had hoped for and it paved the way for a long and successful career.

Because her publishing career started so late, Carolyn found that she had a lot more time to dedicate to her craft. She does most of her writing in an office in her home. She uses a desk that her husband built.

Despite her best efforts, she can never keep her workspace tidy. While she makes notes in notebooks, Carolyn uses a computer to write her manuscripts.

The author is married. She has three children and over a dozen grandchildren, not to mention great-grandchildren.

Carolyn Brown Awards

Carolyn has received National Readers Choice, Montlake Diamond, and Bookseller’s Best Awards.

Best Carolyn Brown Books

The author has several notes in recipe boxes that detail the biographies and physical attributes of every character in her novels. She uses index cards to retrieve information about characters that appear in more than one book. Some of Carolyn’s best novels include:

The Ladies Room: Trudy had a lot of problems, including a rebellious daughter, a cheating husband, and a sick mother. But now her Great-Aunt was dead and she was expected to look after a crumbling old house.

Fortunately, Gertrude thought of everything. Her will left Trudy all the money she needed to remodel the house. As a new home rises from the ashes, Trudy’s life begins to change. If things continue to progress, she may even embark on a new relationship with Billy Lee but only if she can forget everything she heard during her great aunt’s funeral.

The Sometimes Sisters: Dana, Tawny, and Harper were not necessarily close. They spent most of their time apart. However, every summer, they would reconnect at their grandmother’s resort in Texas. But they haven’t spoken in ten years.

Their grandmother died with the regret that they had grown so distant from one another. But it looks like the secrets that drove them apart will finally bring them together.
