Hi, I’m Carol Balawyder. I write women’s fiction and crime.
I am currently retired from teaching Corrections and Police Technology – a criminologist interested in the psycho-socio-political-economical aspects of crime.
Featuring my dog Bau, as a category on my blog, is fairly recent. He is my current writing/photography project and muse. His utterly unembarrassed confidence keeps me balanced and adds a touch of humour 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, the lighter Ten Great First Dates and some of my own short stories as well as book reviews. Feel free to browse and perhaps connect.
I am currently working on a second crime novel (Only the Lonely) and peddling the first (Warning Signs) to agents and publishers.
Thank you for stopping by.
