Carole Avila is an award winning author in short fiction, memoirs, and poetry. She is also a self-help writer and a few of her short stories, poems, and a play have been published. Her works of fiction are inspired by a wild imagination and colorful dreams, and her non-fiction work and poetry stem from 30 years experience as a life coach and a survivor of abuse.
When she read Go, dog. Go! at 3 years of age, Carole knew she wanted to be a writer. “When I write, I fix a chai latte and get lost in the process for hours and hours.”
Carole has conducted writing workshops. Her workshops on the long term effects of sexual abuse are geared toward individuals who experienced abuse and for professionals who deal with sexual abuse victims.
A life time student, Carole enjoys attending writing classes, reading, and teaching her rescue dog, Cleo, new tricks.
