Meet Carolyn V. Hamilton


Having published three memoirs (and two more “in the drawer”), I've learned a lot along the way about the process.

Also, a lot of people helped me along the way. That's why I want to "pay it forward" to help you.

In addition to writing memoir, fiction and non-fiction, I love to lead writing workshops and coach aspiring memoir writers like you.

Presently, I'm living the U.S. expat life up in southern Ecuador’s Andes mountains in the Spanish colonial town of Cuenca, one of five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ecuador.

I was raised as a nice Lutheran girl in Seattle, in the rainy Pacific NW area of the United States, so I have no problem with lockdowns.

As a child I learned to play quietly in my room. Gray, rainy days feel normal, and I regard sunshine with suspicion.

Professionally trained as an illustrator and graphic designer, I spent over three decades working as a marketing executive and copywriter in the real world of "Mad Men." (That's going to be one of my forthcoming memoirs).

My BA, in Liberal Arts, is from Antioch University Seattle (where I discovered I could get legitimate credits for “life experience.”)

My other adventures have included two years’ service as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Suriname (chronicled in part in my memoir, HELP! I Married an Alien A Comedian and a stint—in my “younger days”—as a Playboy Bunny.

When I'm not struggling with “Spanglish”, I love to write books, create art journals, cook, and paint photo-realistic watercolors from my personal travel photo collection. 

I also like chocolate, Border Collies, comedy, alpaca shawls, adult coloring, and lunching with girlfriends.

And it’s true that I now shares my fifth-floor, penthouse-like condominium with that ex-husband, the stand-up comedian from Las Vegas.
