Carol M. Cram

About me

Decades of loving historical fiction, particularly with a literary or arts-related bent, have finally led Carol M. Cram to write her own novels. Her debut novel is “The Towers of Tuscany” about a woman painter in fourteenth century Tuscany. Carol “indie” published the novel in March 2014. It was then acquired by Lake Union Publishing in May 2014 for re-release in December 2014.
Carol has enjoyed a successful career as an educator and the author of 40+ textbooks on business communications and software applications for Cengage Learning. She holds an MA in Drama from the University of Toronto and an MBA from Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh and was on faculty at Capilano University in North Vancouver, British Columbia, for over twenty years. Carol lives with her husband, west coast artist Gregg Simpson, on beautiful Bowen Island, a 20-minute ferry ride from Vancouver. She loves traveling, walking in the rainforest, and dreaming about creative women in times gone by.
