I read novels and poetry daily. Occasionally I write a book review. My reviews are positive because if I don't like the book I won't finish it. Books I read or review as follows: poetry, thrillers, horror, dark fiction, literary fiction, fiction without categories, prefer to read a paper book as it is easier on my eyes. Send me an email and if I can buy the book, I'll order it from my bookstore. This guarantees they order a couple. If not available yet or an ARC I might get it on Net Galley. Email, leave a comment or call me

Being creative is a life choice. Make your surrounds amazing.
Mistakes are fearless attempts when magic occurs.

My long-form novels are different genres: Toxic Assets and The Lucky Boy both are literary, contemporary and thriller genre based.

I live in California and a home outside of Hoback Junction Wyoming.

Instagram is my journal. I write haiku or comment with often soft landscapes, birds, my garden...  http://instagram.com/carolinegerardo

My mortgage banking business pays the bills. I enjoy my work.


Current novel working title Eco-Terrorist, but the title is going to change perhaps Soothsayer, perhaps The Climate Changed.

Everything in life is a work in progress.
