Carolyn also loves to travel. On her mini-cruise to Coco Kay she spoke to the attendees of the Florida Romance Writer’s Fun in the Sun Conference about Luring Readers into the Story though Deep Viewpoint and followed up with Finding Time for Your Dream on a later Fun in the Sun Conference.

Carolyn also traveled to Barcelona on a cruise to Rome, where she viewed ruins she’d only heard of when studying Latin in high school.  In Barcelona, Spain, she toured the famed Familia Sagrada. Though unfinished, it is a magnificent creation of architect Antoni Gaudi,  after whom the term gaudy was coined to describe over-the-top ambitious use of color and design.  Barcelona’s fountains are also spectacular as shown in the picture below.
