Name: Carolyn Elizabeth
Publisher: Bella Books
Reason you started writing: It had always been a dream of mine to be an author of lesbian fiction. When we moved to London, Ontario from Hartford, CT in 2013, I found myself without a full-time job and at loose ends. I started writing fanfiction and found out I wasn’t half bad. I did that for several years. I eventually felt ready to take the next step and wrote the book that had been percolating for years—the one I always wanted to read and never found. That was Gallows Humor.
Next book to release & when: Zero Chill, the 3rd in the Curtis and Reynolds romantic thriller series. April, 2021.
Why we should read it: Romance, humor and dead bodies. What more could you want in a series? 
K. Aten notes: I'm both disturbed and intrigued by her answer. LOL 
Genres that you've written: Romantic thriller, paranormal with my first historical/romance/action adventure on the way later in 2021 (Pirates!)
List of published books/novellas: 

  • Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds 1)

  • Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds 2)

  • The Other Side of Forestlands Lake

Name something you're proud of in regards to your writing: I give good chemistry and I’m funny.

Cats or Dogs: Dogs.🐕
Coffee/Tea/Water: Diet Pepsi
K. Aten notes: OMG, people actually STILL drink Pepsi? What is the world coming to? 😲
Weapon of choice during Zombie Apocalypse: A chakram, of course.
K. Aten notes: YES! You've officially redeemed yourself for the Pepsi choice. Xenites stick together!
Hobbies: I have two young kids, a full-time job and a writing side hustle. There’s not much time for anything else. When not in a pandemic I play in net for a local women’s rec soccer team.⚽
Do you fanfic? If so, favorite ship: I don’t write fanfic anymore. I do read it on occasion when I need a quick pick-me-up. I read some Clexa and Catradora (Especially if
Rae D. Magdon wrote it), Korrasami, Wayhaught and some others. K. Aten notes: So many good ships, so little time.

The Other Side of Forestlands Lake by Carolyn Elizabeth

      As kids, best friends Willa Dunn and Lee Chandler spend every summer together at the idyllic Upstate New York community of Forestlands Lake, nestled in the foothills of the Taconic Mountains. During the summer before they turn sixteen—just as the two are discovering that there might be something more to their friendship—a tragic accident befalls Willa’s family and without warning, Willa and Lee’s world is torn apart.
      Twenty-five years later Willa is a successful author of the young adult ghost stories she loved to read as a child. She returns to the lake looking for a writer’s retreat and an opportunity to connect with her troubled teenage sister, Nicole.
      Lee, now a single mother to her wise-beyond-her-years teenage daughter Maggie, is the director of the summer camp on the other side of Forestlands Lake.
      Before Willa and Nicole even have the chance to unpack, their plans are upset by a mysterious young girl, a near drowning, and a surprise reunion. Soon Willa and Lee are working to protect the girls, reconcile their past and unearth the secrets surrounding Forestlands Lake—putting old ghosts to rest once and for all.
