Caroline Collier's main goal in life has always been to write stories that would lead the way to world peace and universal compassion. No, seriously. She is a three-time recipient of the Lone Star Award for journalistic excellence from the Houston Press Club. An avid traveler and multi-lingual communicator, Caroline likes to venture out into the world and find the places where human experience can be reduced to a common denominator. Born on the winter solstice, she received a degree in chemistry and economics before falling into a world consumed by books and music. She lives in Fort Worth, Texas within walking distance of where her favorite football team plays. When she is not writing news stories, grant proposals, songs or novels, she is probably cooking or getting sucked into Twitter.
Based in a Texas city during the intolerable heat of the waning summer, The Shining City On The Hill is progressive fiction about the last days of the American dream. The story takes you deep into the lives of a dozen troubled characters as they unconsciously cross paths, never realizing that profound suffering unites them all.
