Carolyn Radmanovich is a visionary fiction writer. Last fall Bookstand Publishing, out of Morgan Hill, published her first novel, The Shape-Shifter’s Wife, which is now on Amazon and Kindle.
She began writing after an incident on the Russian River where she almost drowned. Because of this, she felt compelled to write her first book, which includes a similar near-drowning scene. In the story the heroine time travels to the 1840’s California gold rush era, and is saved by a handsome Frenchman who is shackled by a family curse. She recently completed a rough draft of number two in the sequel to her first book, and she has plans for a third.
After writing The Shape-Shifter’s Wife, another project emerged, inspired by her nephew, who wanted to collaborate with her on a book about the wine god, Bacchus. Before he could help her, he died in a motorcycle accident. She fulfilled her promise to complete the book, Bacchus, From Lust to Love, which is in the editing process.
Fascinated by the Wild West, Carolyn earned a history degree from San Jose State University. This research background served her well when she wrote about early Northern California.
