About the Author

paducahI am Carol Dean Jones, born in the late 1930’s in Paducah Kentucky before it became the quilt capital of the country. For my first ten years, I lived with my grandparents in Paducah. It wasn’t uncommon for children to be sent to what was perceived as safe parts of the country when Pearl Harbour was bombed.

I spent my working career providing social work services to a caseload of elderly people in the Washington DC metropolitan area.

100_0605In 2004 I retired and moved to the foothills of West Virginia where I bought a cabin, made new friends, and joined a quilt club.

But something seemed to be missing.

Stories which had been rumbling around in my head for years began demanding to be told.

And, as a result, TIE DIED: A Quilting Cozy was created.
Tie DiedAt that time, I never would have guessed that there were nine more books (and maybe more!) waiting to be written about a seventy-something-year-old woman and her experiences in the retirement community of Cunningham Village in the mid-west. But it should be no surprise that she took up quilting and continuously stumbled into mysteries to be solved.
