Carol Kilgore has always had stories and characters in her head, but she didn’t know she should write them down until about a dozen years ago. Once she started, she couldn’t stop.
Her first published short story won the Derringer Award for Best Short-Short Mystery. She continued to write short fiction for a few years and enjoyed a small success as a freelancer before giving it all up for her true love—novels.
The atmosphere and people of the Texas coast hold a special charm for her, a fascination she brings to life in many of her stories. Carol writes a blend of mystery, suspense, and romance she calls Crime Fiction with a Kiss. Always at least one crime; always a love story. Her favorite authors are Lisa Scottoline, James Patterson, Lisa Gardner, and David Baldacci.
As the wife of a Coast Guard officer, Carol has lived in locations across the U.S. She and her husband now live in a San Antonio suburb and share their home and patio with two active herding dogs whose mission is to keep them free from all danger, real or imagined.
Apart from her online home here on her website, you can also find Carol and her books at these locations:
Carol is a member of Romance Writers of America, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime.
