Hi, I’m Carol Balawyder. I write women’s fiction and domestic crime novels.
I am currently retired from teaching Corrections and Police Technology – a criminologist interested in the psycho-socio-political-economical aspects of crime.
So far, I have two crime novels: Warning Signs, A psychological suspense novel and Just Before Sunrise, a coming of age, domestic crime novel.
My dog Bau, is at times my PR agent, my writing/photography project and muse. His utterly unembarrassed confidence keeps me balanced and adds a touch of humor to my life.
I also post interviews with writers on how they got published, short posts on famous writers’ desks, Female Nobel Prize Winners for literature, femme fatales, My India, Ten Great First Dates and some of my own short stories as well as book reviews of bloggers I follow. Feel free to browse and perhaps connect.
I am a member of Sister’s in Crime, The Quebec Writers’ Federation and have an author profile on Facebook and Amazon.
From Montreal, Quebec, I hold an undergraduate degree in English Literature, and a Master’s degree in criminology, both from the University of Montreal. I have published fiction in Room Magazine, The Canadian Anthology of Fiction, Between the Lines, and Carte Blanche, and published fiction online at Mindful.org. I was given an honorary mention for a play submitted to The Canadian Playwright Competition.
Thank you for stopping by.
