Carole described herself as “writing for therapeutic release.” Her published books, Kat Tales, volumes 1 and 2, revolved around her childhood experiences and ties to the Kansas City area. She was published in The Best Times, Good Old Days, and more. The Kansas City Railway Historical Society published “Love at the Train Station,” a tribute to Carole’s parents. She also enjoyed the challenge of writing poetry, some of which was included in Tallgrass Voices published by Hill Song Press and by the Johnson County Library, in Overland Park, Kansas.
Carole was a member of District 2. In 2018, she paid her dues ahead to 2021 when she would be an Octogenarian. She was eager to maintain her connection with Kansas Authors as she started a new adventure, moving to Florida to be near her family. Though Carole was recognized by the club in 2021, we sadly learned that she did not quite make it to her 80th birthday. Carole passed away in April 2020.
