CAROL PREFLATISH has worked in social services for over thirty years. Her interest in writing began in high school when she worked as a reporter, photographer, and sport’s editor for the school newspaper. Because of her interest in history, she co-authored “A Commemorative History of Crawford County, Indiana 1818-1993.” One of Carol’s favorite hobbies is photography. She has had many photos published in her local newspaper, as well as in the July 1997 issue of Golf Journal, the official publication of the United States Golf Association.

She lives in southern Indiana and shares a log cabin with her husband and two cats in what seems like an enchanted forest with a menagerie of wildlife constantly visiting.
