Carole Nelson Douglas

Carole Nelson Douglas, author of more than fifty fantasy and science fiction, mystery, mainstream, and romance novels, was an award-winning reporter and editor for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. After writing some bestselling high fantasy novels and SF thrillers, she imported fantasy notions into her Midnight Louie mystery series, which features a hard-boiled Las Vegas PI who’s a feline “Sam Spade with hairballs.” Her Irene Adler historical series made Carole the first author to use a woman from the Sherlock Holmes stories as a protagonist in the 1991 New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes. She’s won or been short-listed for more than fifty writing awards in nonfiction, sf/fantasy, mystery, and romance genres, including several from the Romance Writers of America and Romantic Times BOOKreviews magazine, and the Cat Writers’ Association. In 2008, RT BOOKreviews magazine named Carole a “pioneer of the publishing industry. Carole and husband Sam Douglas, a former art museum exhibitions director and kaleidoscope designer, are kept as pets by five stray cats and a dog in Fort Worth, Texas. She collects vintage clothing, and does a mean Marilyn Monroe impersonation, and, yes, she does dance, but not with werewolves. As far as she knows.

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If you're not busy being born, you're busy dying, to paraphrase Bob Dylan

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Those white chocolate peanut butter cups. Peanut butter is a protein and a "good" fat. The white chocolate is gravy.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Women who broke social barriers, Florence Nightingale, Louisa May Alcott, Annie Oakley, Rosie the Riveter, and Barbara Walters (who IS the history of media women).

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Savoring the present moment with the people and animals I love, writing what I believe in, and eating white chocolate peanut butter cups every day without gaining weight.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. Queen Elizabeth I, and I'd ask her who wrote Shakespeare's plays. She didn't miss a thing.
