Carolyn Digh Griffin, a native North Carolinian, resides in Waxhaw, North Carolina, with her husband, Hoyle. They have been married 53 years. She is retired from Union County Public Schools where she was an Administrative Assistant to the Assistant Superintendent. She has two daughters and four grandchildren who also reside in the Old North State. All of Carolyn’s books are southern Christian stories that include mysteries, sometimes terror, and human relationships with a touch of romance. Her stories always reflect the lives of ordinary people and their life situations. Carolyn always writes about places that are familiar to her. She has spent her entire life in North Carolina except the time her husband was in the military. Her hobbies include music, writing, genealogy, collecting antiques, and scrapbooking old family pictures. She always includes some type of historical facts in her books, because she is well-versed in history and loves to study and research it. Carolyn’s writing journey began after an extended illness that led to her retirement from Union County Public Schools. Her first novel, Hope Returns, was published in 2007 and republished in 2015.
