Reviews of Second Story Woman:
Carole Calladine is a quintessential storyteller whose writing is entertaining, informative, and inspiring. Second Story Woman is a feast for the soul, a guide to mindfulness, and a tale of tender triumph over a huge life challenge. – Jan Phillips, author of "Marry Your Muse."
In Second Story Woman, Carole Calladine takes the reader along on her journey of self-discovery. Her authentic voice comes through as she comes to terms with the balance between her professional responsibilities and her need for a creative life. This strong memoir will speak to anyone charting life past 50. – Doris Larson, founder of “A Writing Retreat: In the Company of Women”
Wear a hard hat and prepare for black ice because memoir is harsh country. In Second Story Woman, Carole Calladine stirs the pot where we prick a finger and the spell of our youth disappears. She makes us see we are both the witch and princess. The apple that we bite and hold and share is our life. She tells us any time we have is enough time to be brave. - Jeanne Bryner, author of Eclipse.
F. Scott Fitzgerald famously quipped, "There are no second acts in American lives." Fitzgerald never met Carole Calladine. -Ben Saylor, West Life.
This book is a beautifully wrought narrative that explores the writer's innermost thoughts and her observations of the world around her. Calladine is not afraid to let her readers see into her heart and that's what good story is all about

Reviews of One Terrific Year:
I must admit to a bias; Carole Calladine is now the parent educator I tried to be for forty years. I happily pass the torch to this wise, warm, sensible lady. The nice thing about her book is that while it introduces a new slant (seasonal!) into child study, she doesn't beat it to death. What she is really doing is using all her personal and professional experience in the service of childhood. - Eda J. LeShan, author of When Your Child Drives You Crazy.
A stunningly original approach to the problems of child behavior, based on the changes children experience as the seasons progress through the cycle of the year, from the start of school right on through summer. Refreshingly different. I recommend it highly. - Dr. Louise Bates Ames, Associate Director, Gesell Institute
