Caron Kamps Widden, author of the novel, Restoration, and the suspense novel, The Lies We Keep also writes articles, short stories and poems. She was a submission reader at Zoetrope: All-Story, a literary magazine founded by Frances Ford Coppola, an editorial assistant at Orange Coast Magazine and wrote for The Irvine World News. Having lived all over the country and abroad, Caron draws from her experiences traveling and learning about different cultures. She studied Communications at Cal State Fullerton and admittedly, is a big eavesdropper and of course, also an avid reader and has always been fascinated by the power of words. She believes the author begins the novel, the reader finishes it. With that in mind, she writes character driven novels for the reader who appreciates understanding the character's motivations and an intricate plotline. Caron is married and has three grown children and is currently at work a new novel.
