Ron Cooper: Carol, I’m excited about the appearance of your new novel. We’ll get to that in a moment, but first tell us something about your background—where you grew up, your education, your early academic interests, etc.
Carol Quinn: I am a California girl who deeply misses the ocean and was forcibly transplanted to Colorado.
