I was a newspaper columnist for the Peninsula Daily News and also wrote numerous Sunday Peninsula Woman profiles for the paper. I went on to write cover stories, features, and health articles for American Profile magazine. Two of my features were selected for American Profile/HarperCollins book, Hometown Heroes, published in 2007. One of those features was reprinted in Significant Living magazine. My essay "Red" won recognition in the 1999 Iowa Literary Awards Competition. My nonfiction book, Maximum Fitness-Minimum Risk, The Wellness Exercise Program for Cardiac, Diabetes, and Pulmonary Patients, was published in 2005. My debut novel, Dearest, will be released fall 2011. You can see my work and more about me on my website www.carolemarshallstudio.com.

Novel - Dearest - release date fall 2011 Cogito Media Group.
Dr. Amelia Payne, a veterinarian and educational writer, no longer defines herself as the daughter of a clown and deceased mime. By age fifty, Amelia has built a successful life in a place where the past will never find her.....or so she hopes. When a childhood friend tracks her down hoping to locate a missing bracelet he promised his father he'd find, Amelia is spiralled back into the thick of eccentric characters that colored her youth. Amelia is shockingly familiar with the lost bracelet and the search that ensues uncovers the past Amelia thought she knew, reveals secrets she never could have known, and unveils a truth she finally comes to know. Also uncovered to Amelia's angst is her missing mother, Maize the Clown.
