Letters from the Heart 1943-1946, is a book the author felt compelled to write. It is the true story of a young P-51 pilot in love, and war during World War II - with the basis of the book told in beautiful heartfelt letters during this pivotal time in America’s history. Several years were spent researching historical events at home and abroad and there are over 70 references included in the book.
Other books by the author include a children's book, Dana Doesn’t Like Guns Anymore, written in 1987 to help young children, including son Dana, understand that guns are dangerous. A booklet about toy gun safety activities is included with each purchase. Friendship Press in New York City published and distributed this book until 2012. The book is now available by contacting the author directly. (The only cost for this beautifully illustrated children's book is a $5 shipping charge).
Over the years, other writing activities included several articles published in Breaking Ground magazine with many unpublished personal family stories.
Carole lives with her husband in Franklin, Tennessee and is the mother of an adult son (Dana) and daughter (Sarah) who live nearby.
