ABOUT GOOD LUCK BILL: Can we inherit the capability — or the inability — to love someone? Does one failed relationship put all future ones at risk? Could it be that what tears two people apart are the very things they hold in common?

"A deftly crafted and extraordinarily candid personal memoir, "Good Luck Bill" is an inherently fascinating and fully absorbing read from beginning to end. "Good Luck Bill" is all the more impressive considering that it is mother, hairstylist, and yoga devotee Carrie's first book. "Very highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library American Biography collections, it should be noted that "Good Luck Bill" is also available in a Kindle edition ($2.99)." - Midwest Book Review, Feb. 2016

In addition to being a writer, Carrie has been a hairstylist for over twenty years, a career she thoroughly enjoys—and one most certainly “chosen” by her need to nurture and connect with people—a result of the absence of such connections she experienced growing up. Her book, The Business of Beauty, is a guide for cosmetologists that explores the idea that being a stylist goes beyond the ability to “do hair,” and that it’s through communication, and by making authentic connections in our professional life, that we find our passion and purpose, which ultimately leads to success.
