As you well know, it is always a pleasure to bring to your attention a new-to-me author. I met Carolyn Rae in Oklahoma @ the OKRWA workshop with Donald Maass so please give her a great big welcome!
Those who come can fill up boxes in shopping carts with food, and volunteers help people load the boxes into their cars.
Even though I keep my brain busy with writing novels, I also volunteer to tutor school children once a week. Some are also learning English as a second language. Tutoring helps me keep my math, history, sociology, and geology skills current. I even helped a seventh grader with questions about credit and debit cards. It amazes me that they teach kids subjects in lower grades that used to be kept until later in their schooling. Perhaps kids are smarter than we give them credit for.
Although I write novels to entertain readers, I find volunteering helps me feel like I am making the world a better place.
Along with her novels, she wrote the text of There IS Life After Lettuce (Eakin Press), a cookbook for heart patients and diabetics, and has a master’s degree in home economics. She has worked as a teacher in a federal prison, done research for a mincemeat company, and worked as a paralegal for several attorneys.

Carolyn normally writes hot, steamy romance, however her book, Holiday with a Prince a sweet romance, is available at Amazon.
Hope you enjoyed today's post and that you'll drop by weekly for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.
Until next time, take care and God Bless.
