About Carol Morley

From a young age, Carol immersed herself in the world of stories, finding solace in the pages of books that transported her across time and space. “Carol-Anne, get your nose out of that book!” was a phrase she often heard while growing up, but some things never change. Today, her house is jam-packed with a myriad of favorite books from every age and genre: Art books, Greek Mythology, Classics, Shakespeare, Historical Fiction,
Novels written in French, and many wonderful contemporary works.

As the author of ‘Beyond Public Image,’ a nonfiction tribute to America’s First Ladies, she appeared as a Keynote Speaker at many business conventions. ‘The Agent’s Wife’ is her first work of fiction.

The former investment broker knew when she sat down to write her first novel, the plot would have to play itself out in her native New England and cities of her youth, Boston, New York, and Washington D.C. It was here her characters would come to life!

Carol is currently working on her second novel, about a young investment broker named Samantha (Sam) Richman living in Manhattan.
