Carolyn Ridder Aspenson



"I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I just never found something that gave me enough passion to actually make it happen—until my mother died. I wrote my first book to allow others to know her the way I did.”

 

Carolyn Ridder Aspenson writes mysteries and contemporary romances featuring imperfect women with a flair for telling it like it is. Her stories focus on relationships whether they’re between friends, family members, couples, townspeople or strangers because ultimately, it’s relationships that make a story. She writes the Angela Panther Mystery Series, The Inn at Laurel Creek contemporary romance novella series and the Lily Sprayberry Realtor Cozy Mystery Series. 

Carolyn is also the founder of the Facebook author and reader collective, Sleuthing Women—Read. Sleuth. Solve. Repeat. A place for readers to connect with an exclusive group of women authors of female sleuth mysteries. 

Now an empty-nester, she lives in the Atlanta suburbs with her husband, two Pit Bull-Boxer mix dogs and two cantankerous cats, but you’ll often find her at a local coffee shop people watching (and listening), or as she likes to call it, plotting her next novel.
