About the Author
Hello, I'm Carol Haney, I have been a teacher in the New York City public school system for 28 years. I reside in New Jersey. I have always enjoyed the various art forms such as theater, music, singing, dance, film and the art of writing. Growing up as a little girl I have always enjoyed writing, Whatever genre, whether it be creative writing, poetry or narrative, putting words together to create an expression, emotion or story. I have always wanted to be an author which inspired me to begin my first fiction novel "Hold On". I enjoyed bringing my characters to life and seeing them unfold before me. Writing brings out the creative images and expands the thought processes. Creating my first novel was a pleasure and when I completed it, that gave me a sense of accomplishment. I truly hope my readers will enjoy my book and perhaps they will see a reflection of themselves or someone they know. In addition, I hope they will come to realize that when you set your mind on something you really want to do, don't stop, do it, work hard, have faith, believe in yourself and you will reach your goal. ENJOY!
