Author Biography

Carina lives in  Flint, Michigan with two charming Rottweilers, three cats and a small spotted dog of indeterminate origin and believes a properly trained human is a dog's best friend.


Carina's parents are British and Carina grew up in various locations including Devon, England; and Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Skye, Scotland. She attended high school  on the Isle of Skye, where her mother currently lives and owns Shilasdair Yarns. During her years in Devon, Carina had a dog who walked to the bus stop with the children in the family, waited until they were on the bus, and then walked himself home. She spent a lot of time walking and hiking in the English countryside with dog by her side.
