An educator for more than four decades, Carol Ann Wilson’s work with public schools and higher education institutions focused on issues of democracy and social justice, as did her writing. When she turned to creative nonfiction, her first book, Still Point of the Turning World: The Life of Gia-fu Feng, won Foreword Review’s Book of the Year Award. "The Girl from Coke," a personal narrative published in Under the Gum Tree, won the Colorado Authors League Award of Excellence. “Fireworks in Hong Kong,” published in The Write Launch, is a finalist for the same award this year. Carol lives and writes in Boulder, Colorado.
