Carol Barnier is a delightful speaker, entertaining author, adequate wife, pitiful housekeeper.

She was born in Germany into an American military family. While she lived all over the place (from Alabama to Alaska),her family nonetheless regularly reconnected with Ohio (Go Killbuck!) and it is clearly the place of her roots. She currently lives in Connecticut with her husband and 3 kids.

She consistenly attempts to have a brave mix of Erma Bombeck crossed with a bit of C.S. Lewis, but readily admits to typically only achieving a solid Lucy Ricardo with a bit of Bob the Tomato. Because of this, you’ll see her writing about topics that are sometimes quite serious (life as an atheist coming to faith), other times more utilitarian (teaching the ADHD child without ever using duct tape), and occasionally humorous (Fashion Advice for the Short & Stumpy) but always with an easy accessibility and warmth.
