Carol Elizabeth Larson

Carol Larson is a writer, presently of essays, podcasts, op-eds, short stories, and –coming soon– her first published novel. In the past she wrote for television as a reporter and documentary producer, earning a slew of awards, including an Emmy. In 2010, after 33 years in broadcasting, Carol decided to take early retirement and dedicate herself to developing her solo voice, and soon started to collect more awards, including a Writers Digest National award in 2013 for Inspirational Writing. Like the majority of newly retired baby boomers, Carol sees retirement as the beginning of a new phase of life, a time to pursue personal dreams and discover new goals and ambitions, and she hopes to help others discover their strengths and potential as valued seniors. Carol is a member of Wisconsin Women Entrepreneurs; WI Sisters in Crime; Wisconsin Writers Association; Writers Must Eat! (co-founder); The Transition Network; is an alumni of the UW Madison and was awarded Emeritus status when she retired from UW-Extension.
