A Seattle native and a University of Washington engineer, Caroline Flohr writes raw stories that crack the soul. While mothering five for more than twenty-six years and shaping dwellings to call home, Caroline has established herself as a fearless, honest writer giving voice to social issues rarely voiced. She finds inspiration while watching morning ferries cross Puget Sound and emerge from layers of fog, combing for beach treasures, and running island trails with her yellow Lab, Lady Brooke. Speaking engagements include national radio shows, University conferences, women’s groups, high schools, PTO’s , churches, bookclubs and groups looking for inspiration. She blogs weekly about things she wants her children to know and is currently at work on two new books: a lighthearted story about the crazy world of planning a wedding, as told by the mother of the bride; and a YA novel based on a true story.
