I wasn’t planning to blog, but things happened that needed blogging about. I’m still learning how to do it. The writing part isn’t hard. Writing is what I am all about. I’ve published 23 novels and a nonfiction book, Murder and Mayhem in the Catskills. That idea came from The History Press because the Catskills is where I live.


At Bennington College I majored in drama, minored in Russian, discovered I hadn’t much talent for acting and I’d rather write anyway. I did visit Russia when it was still the Soviet Union. Also traveled with my children in Western Europe, and in the Far East with my husband, a travel agent of Okinawan descent. Our trip there was the first time he got to see the land of his forefathers. Currently I share a home (in the Catskills) with my daughter, son-in-law, grandson, four dogs, and four cats. I am addicted to crossword puzzles and waste too much time on them.

  1. Caroline,

    I just heard the dreadful news of Ryo’s passing. I am so sorry. I worked with Ryo for about 6 months and we shared the same office corner. Ryo was a helpful coworker and delightful friend to me. I offer my deepest condolences to you and your family.


  2. Caroline,
    I discovered Ryo’s wonderful pictures, his informative descriptions, and humor on Flickr particularly of the Shawangunk area around 2012 before recently learning of his passing. His love of the area and his gentleness really shines through. I am glad to to have seen these as well as saddened by his passing.

  3. Hi Caroline! My name is Cameron Von St. James and I had a quick question for you! I was wondering if you could email me at your earliest convenience at cvonstjames AT gmail DOT com 🙂 I greatly appreciate your time!!
