Carol Ascher

Author's Bio

In October 2015, I published a novel, A CALL FROM SPOONER STREET. Early reviews are terrific: Midwest Book Review called the novel “a thoroughly engaging and entertaining read from beginning to end,” and described me as “an extraordinary storytelling talent,” and The Reviewer’s Bookwatch said the book was “a deftly crafted novel by a truly gifted writer.”
