With a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and a master's in Theater, Lois Carroll , who also writes as Lois Schwartz, began her writing and editing career working at a publishing company. Now a wife, mother, and grandmother, she writes full time. To date she has published five hard cover books (one in large print), four paperbacks, over a dozen e-books, plus short stories and non-fiction articles in national magazines. Check out her web site at: http://loiscarrollbooks.com/ .
When not writing, you'll find her sewing Sophie's Smocks. When her growing granddaughter, who has Angelman Syndrome, couldn't be fitted with large enough bibs, Lois Carroll took out her sewing machine and set about to solve the problem. Her project, Sophie's Smocks, was born. She makes them from new and gently used turtlenecks plus ribbon trim and terry cloth. Others donate their time to cut, their money, and often materials to keep the project ongoing. All the smocks are FREE for children with AS. They are available to others for consideration of a donation. Just email size and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org .
