Author Carol Van Den Hende sought solace in writing and then committed to sharing what she learned about resilience with her readers. Her novels Goodbye Orchid and Orchid Blooming are about love, personal growth, and trauma recovery. Listen to how she drew inspiration from combat wounded veterans. Find out why her own personal love story (how she met her husband) influenced her characters' brushes with kismet. Hear an excerpt of Carol narrating Goodbye Orchid, and find out how she used her first novel's backstory to create her 2nd novel - Orchid Blooming - which launches this month.
Here's Carol's LinkTree which connects you to her book events, newsletter, social media presence, and website.
A special thank you to Kathy L. Murphy who shined her light on Carol so I could find her. Goodbye Orchid is the Pulpwood Queen's May 2022 Bonus Book of the Month.
As always, thank you for listening.
