Behind the Author
Carol Wyllie lives on an olive orchard in rural Northern California with her husband, dogs and rescue cats. She has been a writer all her life, beginning with fictional scripts as a young girl, then poems and short stories as a teenager. As a new mom, she created a series of children’s books for her two daughters.
Chemo P!ssed Me Off is her first published work.
While I've been a writer all my life, Chemo Pissed Me Off became my first published book. It's not the book I ever thought I'd write, but there I was with all that fresh material. I thought, “if it helps one person, I will consider it a raving success.” It became an Amazon bestseller in breast cancer books.
My second book, a children's book called Mad Dog and Alizard, is a story I told my kids growing up. I'm thrilled it is finally a book everyone can enjoy.
It became a bestseller and was such a hit, my illustrator and I teamed up again to bring you the sequel Mad Dog and Zat Cat.
Becoming a published author is a dream come true and I thank you endlessly for your support.
Wishing you all happiness, good health and good books.
