Known for her compelling stories, books you cannot put down, Carolyn Tyree Feagans now has eight available novels, plus two devotionals. The novels are set primarily in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with secondary settings ranging from western America to Great Britain and Ireland. The devotionals are somewhat larger, hard-cover books, with color pictures that make good table-top books. She is currently working on a Christmas story.
All of her books offer Hope, History, and Heart, and conjure up deeper meanings of life to ponder. Published through Warwick House Publishing in Lynchburg.
Born in Lynchburg, Virginia, Carolyn grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and graduated from Madison Heights High School. Other formal education was obtained through the business realm, as she spent much of her life in the corporate world, over thirty years in management and marketing. Although this was her livelihood and gratifying to a degree, her heart was always in creative writing, which she juggled with her career, publishing the first four books simultaneously. Now retired from business, she devotes her time to writing and her large family—blessed with three wonderful children, Troy, Tara, and Bethany, and their families—nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
Though Carolyn has lived elsewhere, in scenic Minnesota, the great state of Texas, and charming South Carolina, she proudly acclaims the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia as home. An avid reader, with a keen interest in history, she relentlessly researches the past for authentic settings, weaving stories through actual local, national, and international events. She likes to say that she “humanizes” history.
For over twenty years, she served in teaching and inner-city church ministry. Her faith combined with her love of nature and history now enables her to fulfill her dream—that of writing stories of hope.
Carolyn and her husband Enoch spend a good deal of time traveling this great country, especially in the mountains and along the Atlantic coastline, where one easily slips away from the clamor of life and into quiet solace, which is great for her writing.
