Fun Facts about Carole P Roman
What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?
I shaved my hair close to my head when my mom discovered she had cancer and was obsessing about losing her hair. I did it while we were in the salon and then walked up and surprised her. We both cried, but it made cutting her hair close to her scalp easier that day.
Any hobbies? or Name a quirky thing you like to do.
I tap-danced my way through the pandemic. I also took mediumship lessons and have opened a business where I am reading people. Lastly, I am an avid craps player.
If there is one thing you want readers to remember about you, what would it be?
I was always ready to reinvent myself. As life changes, I am proud of the way I pivot, I want to serve as a role model that you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
Do you snack while writing? Favorite snack? Potato chips and ice cream. Not together..
Where do you write?
I write in all different places in my house. I’ve written while I’ve gotten my hair done at the salon. I write at my desk at work, in my home library. The one place I’m too distracted to write is outside.
