Interview by Nicole Melanson ~
Carolyn Gilpin recently self-published her first young adult novel, Facing Up. A dabbler in writing since the early 90s, she has completed a Professional Writing & Editing Diploma and had travel stories, book reviews and non-fiction published in magazine and newspapers. She also enjoys working on short stories and picture book manuscripts.
Prior to publication, Carolyn fumbled her way through various careers, from working with horses, making candles and door-to-door sales to experiencing wild envy and inspiration working in bookshops and publishing customer service. An abrupt left-turn (redundancy) led to becoming info/admin officer for BrainLink, a not-for-profit for people with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury). Now working full time in reception for an attendant care agency, she is still inspired by people who have been hit sideways by life, but struggle on with amazing humour and grit.
