Carolyn M. Osborne


About the Author
Carolyn Osborne lives well off the beaten path in Virginia, on a little mountainside near the Blue Ridge. She shares her in a 200+ year old house with her very tolerant husband and their dog, cat and birds.
Outdoors, she walks a lot, tends her chickens and ponds of orfes, water lilies and lotus.
Indoors, she writes, reads lots of history and science fiction, and cleans house very little. She loves her family, doing research, and bringing history to life.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
This time of year, it's usually because the out of doors is awaiting me: the woods, my yard and flowers, the ponds. But frequently, year 'round, it's an idea I want to write down before I lose track of it. When I'm deep into writing, I often wake up with words I want to capture.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Mostly at home: tending the garden or my chickens or fish, walking in the woods, or just sitting with my tea watching the ponds. Indoors I love to write, read and cook, and enjoy television, especially movies. In the "Outside World" I sing with a community chorus, belong to a science fiction and fantasy book club, and my wonderful writers' group.
