Carol Smith



Carol Sturm Smith has co-authored cookbooks, turned movie scripts into novels, and edited projects as diverse as mushroom books and historical romances. Fat People is her first work of serious fiction; it earned her New York State Council on the Arts grant. Born in Trenton, New Jersey, she has lived in New England, but claims Manhattan—where she holes in, part of the time with her daughter, Dove—as home. She is currently drafting Cosmic Clowns, the second in a series of related novels.
