Carla Coon has been happily married to her husband Darrell for 32 years, living in Upstate New York and raising their eight children. Since 2000, they have been blessed with seven grand-children and the eighth is due this June.
Carla’s first novel, THE GLEN, was born of a synergy of two great passions: religious studies and the outdoors.
Carla Coon’s professional experience includes working as Editor of LifeWork’s Magazine for NYSRTLC, where she also contributed a monthly column. Carla wrote in-depth articles for the National Catholic Register, and was published in the New Oxford Review, Catholic Faith & Family, the Press & Sun-Bulletin and more. In other positions, she served on the Board of directors of a non-profit center and as Director of Religious Education at a large parish.
Once a professional ballroom dance instructor, Carla enjoys music and dance, roaming art museums, and travel abroad with her husband. Currently working in Upstate NY, Carla coordinates several non-profit and local programs, and hopes to complete the third novel of the series, Out of the Glen soon.
