About the Authors

Carol Hammond retired in May 2010 from a 35-year teaching career. She taught English at a community college for the last 25 years, including women's and world literature and all levels of composition. To the sometimes frustration of  family members and neighbors, she likes to talk endlessly about her new passions: history and genealogy. She will also wax enthusiastic about movies, travel, book club. her dog Milo and her favorite author Charlotte Bronte. Her goal is to write a daily theme essay that works in every single one of her interests.
