Carol "Pixie" Brearley is the author of the Dark Angel Trilogy, a psychological thriller series, the first book of which, Rise of the Dark Angel, was the result of the completion of the 2012 NaNoWriMo. The second book, Dark Wings Spread, was nominated for Suspense Magazine's Best of 2013.
Pixie started her writing journey in high school as an English major. Her love of Edgar Allen Poe sparked her to write poetry, which she did not share until her adulthood. From there she decided to write short stories, also for her personal pleasure. It was not until November of 2012 when she joined NaNoWriMo that she finally shared her writing with the world.
Born in Florida, raised in Brooklyn and Queens, NY, she moved to upstate NY in her early teens, where she now resides with her family and cats in their inner city home. When Pixie is not being a mom, wife, housekeeper, cook, and writer, she spends her free time reading, doing assorted crafts, and gardening. She is also a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a medieval recreation group.
