Carol W. Hazelwood is the author of over a dozen published books in several genres including mysteries/suspense, young adult, as well as non-fiction.
“ I enjoy developing plots that derive from my characters,” she says. “Writing takes me to another world, one that I can control to some extent. Occasionally a character tries to grab the spotlight and I have to subdue him or her.”
Carol graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in the School of Criminology, but her main pursuits are writing and sports. She was women’s golf champion for five years at Bel Air Country Club, taught tennis and swimming, and coached high school girls’ soccer. She took two soccer teams to Germany - a teenage team and later a women’s team. In 1986 she revitalized the Newport Beach Library Literacy Program and continues to teach there. She lives in Southern California
She has three sons, four grandchildren, and two great grandsons.
