Carolyn Healy was born in Chicago to a self-employed milkman and an elementary school teacher. When she was three years old, her family moved to Downers Grove, Illinois. That is where Carolyn and her brothers grew up. In the suburbs, she developed a secret love of stock car racing after her family went to the track (several times) in a nearby town. Carolyn attended an all-girls high school before heading off to a small, private college in the Midwest. For several consecutive summers, she worked at a bank in various departments. While in college, Carolyn dabbled in poetry in her spare time. She took several business classes but majored in Psychology and Speech Communication. Carolyn met the man of her dreams and married him shortly after graduation. Her first job out of college was selling bandages, gauze and surgical kits to physicians. Not-being interested in bandages and gauze, she left that position less than a year after starting. Her next job was in customer service where she stayed until her first child was born. Carolyn loved being a stay at home mom and that was her career for many years. In her free time, she did volunteer work and wrote stories as a hobby.
In 2014, Carolyn started Stories By C, INC. It is a business dedicated to writing stories, screenplays and books. She has written 2 novellas, Circle Back Home and ADAPT, both are available on Amazon (e-book & paperback). Carolyn wrote a screenplay based on her book, ADAPT, and has registered it with The Writers Guild of America, East. She has a short story, The First Day, published in Rivulets 27. Her novella, ADAPT, was featured in the July 2016 issue of Glancer Magazine (in the literary locals section).She recently finished her 3rd book and is currently hard at work on her next novel.
Tickled by many words and their meanings, she loves a good pun. Her writing helps satisfy the ‘word nerd’ in her.
Carolyn lives in the Chicagoland area with her family and is a member of a local writers group.
