The youngest of twelve, Carol was born in Washington DC where her father worked in CIA through the 60s and 70s after beginning his career undercover at Kodak developing and deciphering the U2 spy project photos. Her maternal ancestor, Conrad Weiser, was a renowned peacemaker and Ambassador to the Native Americans who worked alongside Ben Franklin and George Washington.

Carol's narratives depict the drama of large families against a backdrop of political intrigue and American history. St. Elizabeth's, a play in two acts, portrays a daughter driven to prove her father's death was political assassination. Quinlans, a TV drama, explores the effects of international blackmail imposed upon a tight-knit Boston Catholic household. While Tuxedo Park, an American Downton Abbey, is set in the affluent Hudson Valley where a millionaire's privately-financed, secret lab pursues atomic science amidst New York's privileged high-society.

A graduate of the American Academy for Dramatic Arts, Carol studied journalism and folklore at Indiana University before completing a BA at New School in creative writing and film. Her poetry, published in Barrow Street Literary Journal, was awarded a National Arts Club Literary Scholarship. Her play, St. Elizabeth's, was accepted by the prestigious Soho Theatre of London's critique workshop. She has also worked with Moscow Art Theatre, Labyrinth Theater Co, The Private Theater and at the Stella Adler Conservatory in New York.

She is currently writing a film adaptation of an unpublished novel she wrote, Nothing Private.

Carol lives in New York City.
