Bio

Carol L. Wright, a former book editor, domestic relations attorney, and adjunct law professor, has written many articles and essays relating to the study of law, but her passion is writing fiction. She has published many short stories in literary journals and award-winning anthologies. 

In 2017, the first of her Gracie McIntyre Mysteries, DEATH IN GLENVILLE FALLS, was published by Cozy Den Press. The story of former small-town lawyer and new-and-used book seller Gracie McIntyre, marries her love of books, New England charm, and the challenge of solving a good puzzle. 

In 2006, she founded the Bethlehem Writers Group, 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 "Dark Side of the Light," in Wildside Press's anthology Day of the Dark: Stories of Eclipse, edited by Kaye George, and 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 from the Bethlehem Writers Group. She also has stories in two anthologies published by the Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group: "A Christmas in Nantucket," and "Connecting the Dots."

"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.
