Carolyn Twede Frank


Carolyn Twede Frank grew up in a small town in Utah. Her love of writing first expressed itself in the third grade when she was given the assignment to write poetry and discovered the fun of creating rhymes. In high school, she had her own column in the school newspaper, and one of her articles took third place in a national editorial writing contest.
She began college with a minor in journalism. When an instructor slashed her writing up one side and down the other, she decided she wasn’t cut out to be a writer—even though the teacher gave her an A, and told her that his harsh critiques were meant to prepare her for the real world. In 2006, as a participant in her neighborhood book club, she read a novel that bothered her immensely by its contents. She thought, “I can write a better story than this!” Her love of writing was reawakened after twenty five years of dormancy, and she immediately began her first novel, Fleeing Flagstaff. Promises is Carolyn’s first published novel.
Carolyn currently lives in Utah with her husband and youngest daughter, where she continues to write and love life. You can visit her website:
