Welcome!

Coming to you from Toronto, Canada, I'm Carolyn, the person behind this blog. 

We all know that our time on this precious planet of ours is limited. This is why I try, as much as possible, to live in the moment and make the most of each and every day (including spending time snuggling on the couch with my Sophie - our 70 lb. Olde English Bulldog).

While I started my career in urban planning, I've spent the majority of my life as a teacher and an entrepreneur. These days, I split my time between my day job as an ESL instructor & content writer (you can read more about the teacher side of me here - but come back please!) and my night time passion, creative writing.

Of course, when I'm not teaching, writing, or showing photos of Sophie oops I mean presenting workshops, there's nothing I like better than getting lost with my book people. As a big fan of women’s fiction (mostly ‘chick lit’, but like many, way past the ‘horrible boss and wandering lover' stage), I’ve been focusing more and more on lighthearted stuff for women over 40. In fact, after some blood and sweat, I'm proud to say I’ve just completed my first novel, And Then There Was Margaret and can't wait to share it with readers soon!Flores
