Carol Rosenfeld is a New York City-based writer and poet. Her work can be found in four anthologies, including Best Lesbian Erotica 1999 and the Lambda-award winning Best Lesbian Erotica 2003, and Back to Basics: A Butch/Femme Anthology. Shadows of the Night: Queer Tales of the Uncanny and Unusual, was an InsightOut Book Club and Quality Paperback Book Club selection, and a 2005 Lambda Award nominee, and Carol's story, "Rabbit Rerun," made the 2005 Gaylactic Spectrum Awards shortlist for Best Short Story.

In 2007, Carol had the honor of being one of twenty-two fellows at the first annual Lambda Literary Foundation Writers' Retreat.

Her first novel, Fool's Mushroom, a wry portrait of New York City's lesbian and gay community as seen by Bambi Devine, a middle-aged baby dyke bridal consultant, was almost published, and she has begun working on a second book, Birds Do It, a parody of a lesbian romance novel.

As the volunteer chair of The Publishing Triangle, an association of lesbians and gay men in publishing, Carol helps to organize and administer the annual Publishing Triangle awards and various other panels and special events.
