Welcome to the official webpage of award-winning author and photographer Carole E. Calladine!
I was born in Clinton, Iowa, raised on a bend in the Mississippi River. There I swam, water-skied, and ice-skated. I currently live on a bend of the Rocky River overlooking Cleveland's Emerald Necklace Metroparks. There I bike, hike, and skip rocks.
Here are a few facts about me: My mom said I ran before I walked. My dad said I didn't sit still enough to fish. I use my naturally high energy to run a senior center, give workshops, and write. I journal every morning to center myself. I can sit still when lost in words and stories.
I love living out loud and cherish my family and friends. I consider myself blessed and relish waking up early to get a head start on the day waiting for me.
Thank you for coming to my webpage to explore my books, photos, and workshop offerings.
