Caroline was born in England and spent the second half of her childhood in Auckland, New Zealand, after emigrating there with her family at the age of eight. They returned to England eight years later, in time for her to finish school in Bournemouth, and then go to university in Portsmouth to read Russian. Between finishing school and starting university, Caroline, spent four years working in church youth ministry and completing a discipleship training school.
Caroline’s current passions include travel, which she hopes to do a lot more of; Christian spiritual formation, including discipleship training, inner healing (prayer) ministry and biblical dream interpretation; and making home with her husband and two children on their small acre lot in Cedar Park, Texas. Caroline met her husband, John (a native New Yorker) at a round table discussion on “what community-living looks like” in Austin, Texas, where they’ve lived for several years and have many wonderful friends and neighbors.
Caroline writes, “We hope one day to live between Europe and the US, where both our UK/ Maltese families and Stateside families can enjoy each other’s company. We also dream about owning some acreage in one of the cooler, more mountainous states, where we can have some horses and host a safe and happy space for children to grow, play and learn about the unconditional love of God.”
Caroline trained in classical ballet from early childhood and then took up hip-hop dance in her twenties, during which time she had many wonderful opportunities to teach and then perform, including dancing at Breaking Convention (Sadler’s Wells Theatre) in 2005. In 2005 Caroline also received her Certificate in Professional Acting from Trinity Examination Board, through Arts Educational Schools, London. After her arrival in the Sates in 2006, she took up writing with some seriousness.
Caroline writes, “Novels and literature have always provided me with a safe yet unlimited space in which to explore the workings of my heart within the themes of humanity, redemption, and the grace of God. I hope similarly my books will provide young and old people alike, a generous, playful, safe space in which to explore their life and dreams amidst the themes of life’s struggles and the benevolence of God.”
