Carol Christina Smith was born in Grass Valley, CA in 1948. This small historical gold mining town is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
She loves travel and adventure. Her hobbies include snow skiing in the Sierra Nevada mountains; swimming in the wilds; writing and reviewing books; gym workouts.
In 2005, her five-year old grandson Val, was in her care. He enjoyed listening to a story about an adventure in the woods with a talking tree and other fantasies. He was so enthralled with the story; he would add his own ideas.
In 2009, she began to write “Tales of Wonder Woods”. The book was completed in 2019. Currently she is writing another children’s fiction based upon historical facts involving a family living during the Antellebum period and the Civil War. She is in the process of publishing a collection of poems titled “Poems From The Heart”.
I feel strongly that my book is good reading for kids in this particular era of time. So many families are separated, and this story offers hope. It is heart-warming inspired by friendship, love, loyalty all wrapped up in fantasy and real-life events.
