For Carolina Valdez books and writing have been a major pleasure in her life. She composed her first stories at the age of eight, and since books were almost non-existent in her parents' home, she read everything in the elementary school library. Her mother took her to the nearest county branch, and the librarian selected appropriate adult books for her to read.
Now a multi-published, award winning author, Valdez is a member of RWA-PAN (the Published Author Network of Romance Writers of America), and RWA's Orange County, California, and Pasic chapters. Suspense and murder crop up in her romances because she's also a member of the Los Angeles chapter of Sisters in Crime.
She, her husband and an adored older cat reside in southern California, only minutes away from mountains, desert or beach.
For twenty years Carolina was a long distance foot race competitor. Valdez has run over a hundred races, four of them 26.2 miles (the Los Angeles Marathon). Now she's content to workout at the local YMCA, swim and take walks.
She and her husband enjoy bicycling and golf. She's a voracious reader of hardback, e and audio books.
