Carolyn Kleinman is an English and English as a Second Language teacher. She has BS and MA degrees from the University of Minnesota. Carolyn has always been a reader and a storyteller and enjoys writing books that explore how people respond to life-changing events. Love, Faith, and the Dented Bullet, her debut novel, is published by Sunbury Press. The novel is both a historical fiction book and a chaste love story. The novel tells the tale of a Holocaust survivor who meets a Mennonite farm girl in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in 1947. The characters form a life-changing bond that enables both of them to overcome their guilt and grief. Her mystery novel, The Class Assignment Is Murder, was inspired by true crimes that occurred near her home. A teenage boy really did murder his family and rape his cousin. Carolyn was haunted by this local tragedy for years as she knew one of the murder victims. She wrote her mystery to add flesh to the skeleton of this old murder case and to give it a beating heart. Her mystery is also a “coming of middle-age” story for her female protagonist, an amateur sleuth, and comes equipped with Reader Discussion Questions. This book is also published by Sunbury Press. Carolyn lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with her husband Steven. Carolyn is very proud of her two children and their spouses and her four glorious grandchildren.
