My name is Carol Smith, but I’ve just recently completed my first children’s subversive fairy tale under the pen name of Manelli Bochelli. I’m a young-at-heart mother who loves life and believes that every day is a gift. My roots are in Texas, but I live in California and have been teaching middle school through college since 1975. I love to travel, and one of the favorite places I’ve been is the Palace of Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors (note the main header photo).
I will be posting about my journey into publishing, a few of my favorite things, and my life as I live it. I hope you will find something within my posts that entertains, informs, or inspires you.
