Caroline Clemmons is an Amazon bestselling author of historical and contemporary western romances whose books have garnered numerous awards. At conferences and seminars she has taught workshops on characterization, point of view, and layering a novel. Her passion is writing and she spends ten to sixteen hours a day at the computer creating the next book.
Caroline and her husband live in the heart of Texas cowboy country with their menagerie of rescued pets. Prior to writing full time, her jobs included stay-at-home mom (her favorite), secretary, newspaper reporter and featured columnist, assistant to the managing editor of a psychology journal, bookkeeper for the local tax assessor and--for a short and fun time--an antique dealer with her youngest daughter.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your viewpoint), she and her daughter took the most interesting antiques home and didn't make much money selling what was left. They enjoyed themselves tremendously, though. If she ever wins the lottery, she'll go back into the antique business while continuing to write. When she's not indulging her passion for writing, Caroline enjoys reading, travel, browsing antiques, genealogy, painting, and getting together with friends.
She has written articles for several genealogy periodicals and has put together three family books: one for the family of her mother, for her father, and for her mother-in-law. She often uses family names in her historical novels for accuracy to the time periood. Find her on her blog, website, Facebook, Twitter, Shelfari, Goodreads, and Pinterest.
