Hello, I'm Carol Yeomanson. I write mysteries for Amazon Kindle and Kobo. I live in London, UK with my husband and son. My son is a Freeman of the City of London as well as being a member of the Guild of Freemen of the City of London. He is also my Editor.
I love to write mysteries and I build my characters purely from my imagination. Maybe I'm just lucky and it's a gift I have as the old saying goes!. I can be sitting 'somewhere' and an idea for a new book literally does pop into my head. Take, for instance, Speakeasy Days. I was on holiday on a cruise ship. I was eating breakfast in the ship's buffet with my husband and son, eating a couple of sausages - no laughing please - and we were overlooking a small harbour where some very nasty pointed pieces of wood were sticking out of the sea. Phrase to son - 'be nasty if someone threw a body on them - nasty way to die!'. Hence - Speakeasy Days was born. Call me a maniac - but I literally do walk around with paper and a pen ready to jot down any ideas that pop into my head. Some people collect recipes - I collect ways to kill people !.
Apart from writing mysteries I love to read them. I've got my favourite authors. I love M.C. Beaton, Agatha Christie, Scott Marinari, Conrad Jones and Toby Oliver. When I'm not writing, I love to craft. Give me a few balls of wool and a crochet hook and a pair of knitting needles and I'm happy for hours. It's my way of relazing.
I'll be up-dating my web site regularly with all my news.. Please contact me with any ideas or comments and I'll always get back to you. My readers are important to me - after all without you, there would be no point to my books.
