About Carol DeVaney

Thing is, I make up stories. Yes, my mother always said to tell the truth. But, I have an excuse. Characters whisper their stories in my ear, now what else can I do but write them down and share? For the record, my mom listens to my stories, so I guess she's forgiven me for telling a tale or two.

Carol's a wife, mom and grandmother. She's won numerous awards and published in short stories and one novel, A Smoky Mountain Christmas. She lives in the sunny South with her husband who patiently awaits his time away from her writing. Carol has an amazing son, who is a remarkable writer, a wonderful daughter-in-law, and is blessed with two awesome grandchildren.

She loves a great story that makes her think about the problems life throws at us and how we react. She believes in happy endings and thinks they happen with commitment, understanding, forgiveness, love, laughter, giving, sacrifice, and being unafraid to expose one's inner self.

Humor is a big part of her daily routine, because if she can't laugh at herself, then she has a boring day. Yes, she laughs a lot!

Carol is a member of Southeastern Writers, Romance Writer's of America, and Georgia Romance Writers.

Ever wish someone could get away with murder? Especially when they don't deserve to live? You'll route for Hannah right to the very end of the story.

Wonderful emotion in this short story. The reader can’t help but be drawn to Hannah’s plight and her solution. Ms. DeVaney does a masterful job in A Matter of Taste in getting the reader to understand Hannah. I look forward to reading more of Ms. DeVaney’s work.

This is an intensely emotional short story. The character of Hannah is poignant and her suffering is superbly developed. When she takes her mother's advice about dealing with a monster, the reader has to cheer for her. Great ending!
