Carol Weston is the author of 16 books, both fiction and non-fiction and has been the “Dear Carol” advice columnist at Girls’ Life since the magazine’s first issue in 1994.
Her newest book is Speed of Life, which received starred reviews in Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, and Booklist. The New York Times Book Review called it “perceptive, funny and moving.” About Ava and Pip, the New York Times Book Review said, “This is a book about sisterhood, but also a love letter to language.”
Carol has been on Today, CNN, Oprah, and The View and teaches writing at the New York Society Library. She’s also big on cats, walking, skiing, and art museums. Her husband, Rob Ackerman, a playwright who has done props for the SNL film unit for 25 years, was previously on the show.
Carol published three personal essays in 2020, “Book Club With My Husband”, “Why My App Is So Very Proud of Me”, and “How I Finally Finally Finally became a Novelist”, which can all be found on her website here.
