Carolyn Taylor-Watts grew up in rural New Zealand, and now lives in Toronto with her husband, and her family. 


Following a career as a Registered Nurse she began writing, and since 1999 has published newspaper articles, short story fiction, and three books of non-fiction.  These have been published under her former name, Carolyn Matthews.   


Her fascination with 20th century Greco-Turkish history and its aftermath led to two years of research, travel in Greece and Turkey, and eventually to the writing of Helena: an Odyssey.  


When not writing, Carolyn enjoys reading, gardening, music, film - and her family.   Carolyn loves hearing from her fans.
