When I “Fall into the World of Extraordinary” I always want to…
…meet new people and make the world a better place. In the World of Extraordinary I might wish for an opportunity to work among the poor of the world and refugees. Barring that I would hope my work could infuse values of caring, tolerance, and family into the world and make it better than I found it.
Name something on your bucket list you HAVE done and something you HAVEN’T done yet.
I have climbed the steps to the Parthenon but I have not yet walked through the locations The Lord of the Rings showed us in New Zealand. I’ve written several romance novels but I have not yet written the medieval historical novel rattling around in my imagination.
Caroline Warfield is the pseudonym of a writer who wishes she had walked through fascinating times in the shoes of one of her characters—but which one?
Caro has at various times been an army brat, a librarian, a poet, a raiser of children, a nun, a bird watcher, an Internet and Web services manager, a conference speaker, an indexer, a tech writer, a genealogist, and, of course, a romantic. She has sailed through the English channel while it was still mined from WWII, stood on the walls of Troy, searched Scotland for the location of an entirely fictional castle (and found it), climbed the steps to the Parthenon, floated down the Thames from the tower to Greenwich, shopped in the Ginza, lost herself in the Louvre, gone on a night tour of the Singapore zoo, walked in the Black Forest, and explored the underground cistern of Istanbul.
By far the biggest adventure has been forty-five years of marriage to a prince among men.
She sits in front of a keyboard at a desk surrounded by windows, looks out at the trees and imagines. Her greatest joy is when one of those imaginings comes to life on the page and in the imagination of her readers.
