Carol Lynn Stewart started out telling stories to her little sister. Later, when they had grown up and had children of their own, her sister encouraged her to "write down" the stories that were always dancing in her head, so she did and never stopped. She studied under a writing mentor, Paul Cohen, and through his novel writer courses and feedback from San Francisco Romance writers of America, she rewrote her first novel, Door in the Sky, an alternate reality medieval paranormal romance set in France, which was published in 2000. Since then she has had short stories and other romance novels published under the pen name of Carolina Montague.
She lives in northern California and divides her time between being a Oneness Trainer, leading students through spiritual processes, and continuing to write down the stories still dancing in her head.
