Carolyn Jaymes


Carolyn Jaymes is an award-winning entrepreneur and a reluctant author. Originally feeling uncomfortable sharing this story and arguing with herself: "If I tell anyone that the man of my heart, who died 20 years ago, asked to come back and switch places with my husband's body - I'd be locked up in a rubber room!" Finally, after years of this internal dialog, she sat down at her computer and began to write. What flowed out of her is the incredible journey of two souls in A Life By Request.

An expert in marketing and business communications, she has worked with presidential candidates, celebrities, and national nonprofit organizations.

Shortly after starting her own epicurean catering business in the early eighties, she was nationally recognized for the success and quick growth of her business. Jaymes has been featured in Fast Company, the Boston Globe, and several other publications, as well as television and radio. A Life by Request is her first book.

Smashwords Interview

Did this story really happen to you?
As much as I feel I have to pinch myself to believe it's true now and again, it really is.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in New England, an area where as Don Henley so succinctly put it "where old world shadows hang heavy in the air". New England in the 60's and 70's often had a buttoned-up and puritanical way of looking at things - at least in my family. This influenced my writing from the perspective of wanting to be free to express myself without judgement, and trying to keep outside the box I was brought up in. Most of my family has passed away, and I can only image what they are thinking about this book, as they watch over me from the other side. Do it now - ask forgiveness later is how I have chosen to look at it.
