Carol L. Wright is a former domestic relations attorney who has spent several years in academia as an adjunct law professor and pre-law advisor. She has written many articles relating to law and pre-law advising, as well as the book The Ultimate Guide to Law School Admission: Insider Secrets for Getting a "Big Envelope" with Your Acceptance to Law School.
Her current focus is on writing fiction. She founded the Bethlehem Writers Group in 2006, bringing together a group of mutually supportive fiction and nonfiction writers. The organization has grown from a small group of writers-in-waiting, to a larger, vibrant collection of published authors. The group publishes anthologies of short stories, the quarterly literary magazine Bethlehem Writers Roundtable, and organizes an annual SHORT STORY AWARD competition offering cash prizes and publication to the winners.
Her most recent publications are two stories, "Maddie's Birthday Surprise," and "A Visit From Belsnickel" in the anthology of children's stories: Once Upon a Time: Sweet, Funny, and Strange Tales for All Ages.
"Nana's Vegetable Soup" and "The Hunter," appear in A Readable Feast: Sweet, Funny, and Strange Tales for Every Taste. This collection of food stories from the Bethlehem Writers Group, LLC is sure to please readers, whatever their taste! This book received a Finalist Medal in the 2016 Indie Book Awards.
A Christmas Sampler won 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards in two categories: Best Short Fiction and Best Anthology.
It also garnered an Honorable Mention from the 2010 DIY Book Awards.
"American Flyers," which was first published by Bethlehem Writers Roundtable, is included in Let it Snow: The Best of Bethlehem Writers Roundtable, Winter 2015.
