Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry. Her poems ‘Sunsets’ and ‘Clear Out‘ were featured on Eyes Plus Words, and two of her poems were included in the DVerse Poets Pub Publication ‘Chiaroscuro’ which is available for purchase on amazon.

More recently her poem ‘Until The Light Gets In‘ was accepted and published at The Drabble and her poem ‘Newborn’ was published by Ink Sweat & Tears.

She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and has hosted a number of guest bloggers here on Writing and Works.

She hopes that 2019 will be the year that she finally sees herself as a proper writer.

        I like the simplicity of the layout. While most add a plethora of photos, I like that I’m not bombarded with them in efforts for the author to use up white space.

  1. If you are into history, my fantasy setting does evolve from alternate middle ages history. Thanks for visiting and the like. Hope to see you again.

  2. Your blog reminds me, beauty is in simplicity, loving the content you offering and this a beautiful introduction on your about! Looking forward to reading more of your work dear. Cheers!

  3. Hi Carol,

    I’ve shared one of your post about balanced on a blade’s edge on twitter and followed you as well. Is it possible I could contact you for a possible conversation about posting my content in your guest author page, that is if you still accept guest post. Thanks Carol, looking forward for your reply.

    • Thank you for the share. I’m actually about to start up a series of guest posts every Wednesday, beginning in October. The theme is the most difficult moment you’ve faced as a writer and how you moved past that.
      Would this be something you’re interested in?

  4. Hello Carol! What a lovely blog you have, with a real creative’s eye and spirit. I saw you subscribed to RozMorris.wordpress.com – thanks!
    I just wanted to let you know that that’s a static site and doesn’t post new content very often, so you might never hear a peep from it again. However, I have two other sites I post on every week, which might interest you:
    http://www.nailyournovel.wordpress.com – writing and publishing advice
    http://www.mymemoriesofafuturelife.com – my creative series The Undercover Soundtrack
    And if you’d like to hear about upcoming releases and special offers, there’s my newsletter
    http://tinyurl.com/rozmorrismailinglist
    If these links have infringed your spam policy, I won’t be offended if you delete this comment – I just couldn’t find another way to say hello in return. Thanks for your interest in my work and I hope you fulfil your ambition to complete a longform work. Best of everything

    • Hi Roz, I feel like I may already follow nail your novel. The name rings a bell and I do read the posts from time to time as they’re useful when working on Shadow Dawn. Thanks for dropping by to say hi, I do appreciate it. Please have a poke around if you’ve got time. I love hearing what people think of the site and the writing. 😊
