The thought of a book about Romance Tips for people over 50, wasn't ever anything Carol Denker expected to take over her life, but it did.
At age 55, Carol answered an ad, "Writer Wanted," in her local paper; soon she knew she'd come home. Covering daily stories, she was struck with the extraordinary courage and beauty within the lives of "ordinary" people. This was what Carol had always thought about--and now she could convey it in words.
She trained to be a teacher, then an art therpaist, earning a Masters degree in Education at Marywood University and a Masters degree in Psychology at Penn. For most of her adult life, she worked as a group therapist in clinics and hospitals in Pennsylvania. Then her life changed drastically--her story is the last one in "Autumn Romance"--and she turned to writing.
Shortly after she answered that ad, Carol became editor at the Star newspaper; a few years later, she and three others founded The Spirit newspaper, which began garnering awards under her leadership. At age 63, Carol began writing "Autumn Romance: Stories and Portraits of Love after 50" and published it two years later.
