Caroline Lee is what George R.R. Martin once described as a “gardener author”; she delights in creating interesting and lovable characters, and allowing them to lead their own stories. Often they draw the story along to completely unexpected–and wonderful!–places. She considers a story a success if she can re-read it and sigh dreamily… and she wishes the same for you. A love of historical romance prompted Caroline to pursue her degrees in social history; her Master’s Degree is in Comparative World History, which is the study of themes across history. Her theme? You guessed it: Marriage throughout world history. Her favorite focus was periods of history that brought two disparate peoples together to marry, like marriage in the Levant during the Kingdom of Jerusalem, or marriage between convicts in colonial New South Wales. She hopes that she’s able to bring this love of history– and this history of love– to her novels. Caroline is living her own little Happily Ever After with her husband and sons in North Carolina.
