About Carolyn

I’m just your typical girl from Chicago living in Georgia. I love spending time with my ‘hottie hubby’, our pittie-boxer mixes, the two cranky cats, and our adult kids when they need something like food.

I love to write—always have, and finally, in 2012 published my first book. From there, I’ve published about 23 others, give or take. I’ve been traditionally published with two publishers, but am now self published because I’m a control freak.

Look at these babies!

If you want a professional bio, here’s one from back in the day.

She is a former freelance writer and editor with articles published in Appen Media publications, CountyLine Magazine and Northside Woman. She has edited and ghostwritten several nonfiction books for business executives and politicians.

Yes, I know. BORING. That’s why I don’t use that anymore.

Here’s a picture of me with Kevin Bacon. You are now officially one degree separated from Kevin Bacon. 🙂 (you know, the six degrees of separation thing, but it’s the six degrees of Kevin Bacon instead. If you don’t know it, Google it. You’ll find it, I promise.)

If you’d like to keep in touch, I send out a weekly newsletter with sales, freebies, interesting and odd tidbits about my life. You can sign up here.

I’m also on Facebook, so if you’re there, check me out. Facebook

Oh, I’ve got two fun groups on Facebook too. One, Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s Cozy Crowd is where I do most of the fun stuff, games, contests, giveaways, etc. You’re welcome to join us here. And I’m the founder of the Sleuthing Women Author Collective where over 35 authors mingle and chat with readers. Check it out here.
