Carol was born in Wath on Dearne, South Yorkshire. She graduated in 2004 from Sheffield University as a (very) mature student with a BMedSci (Hons) in Health and Human Sciences.
This is Carol's first published book of poems, although she has previously been published in several literary journals. Carol went to her first poetry ‘open mic’ in 2011 and has since read her poetry at different venues many times. Carol likes to write about a diverse range of subjects, although she is passionate about issues on sexuality and gender.
