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 non-fiction work and poetry come from 30 years experience as a life coach and a survivor of abuse. Her works of fiction are inspired by a wild imagination and colorful dreams.
When she read Go, dog. Go! at 3 years old Carole knew that she wanted to be a writer. She says, “When I write, I fix a chai latte and get lost in the process for hours and hours.”
Carole lives in Southern California, and lived in Northwest Arkansas for 5 years. She conducted workshops on the long term effects of sexual abuse geared toward individuals who experienced abuse and for professionals who deal with sexual abuse victims. Carole hopes to continue this work in California.
