Hey there! I’m Carol Raymond and I enjoy a unique twist on life’s happenings; I look for the humor in all situations and this helps me keep a smile on my face even during some of the bleakest moments in my life. Some might say I have a sick sense of humor–I never got along with those people!  I love to write and I am especially enjoying some creative non-fiction projects as well as some magazine writing. While I earned a degree in English and taught at a New Jersey High School for many years, what I really want to write about is life–my life–your life–everyone’s life. Everything from the tragic to the comical, from the monumental to the simplest pleasures. Life Happens and we have a choice of how to respond. I’ve been in more predicaments as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, cancer survivor (I prefer warrior), neighbor, friend and a dozen other roles you might think of, and what I have learned is that ultimately our reaction defines who we are.  After all these years, I am still a tenacious girl from New York, and I prefer to laugh it off.

I currently live in San Antonio, Florida (bet you didn’t even know it existed) which is in the Tampa Bay area, with my husband and our neurotic Yorkie, Kelsey.
