Hi Penelope, first tell us a little about yourself.I’m the wife of a retired electrical engineer who plays the accordion. There has always been plenty of music in our house. Our three grown daughters don’t live too far away so we see them often. I spent many years teaching first graders in public school, but I also taught pre-schoolers, which was delightful fun. I sang songs, read stories, painted pictures and played with clay. Some days proved to be a challenge, but most days were full of hugs and smiles. Seeing the children’s progress in learning filled me with joy. I knew I was making a difference. While there was a great deal of responsibility on my shoulders, I looked forward to the job. Now that I am retired from teaching I write, but I also paint and crochet. I’m always busy with an assortment of projects. Lots of writers were …

Looking Out The Window: Carol Raj Introduces Her New Teen Novel, Charlotte Masterson Gets A Life

A Warm Welcome to Carol Raj
Carol shares the story behind Charlotte Masterson Gets A Life.
I always loved books. When I was a child, the greatest punishment I ever got was my father taking away all my books until I earned them back, one by one, with good behavior. My favorite present was a book. But why did my relatives ruin the pristine pages by writing on them? “To Carol. Love, Aunt N and Uncle P.” At the time, it seemed desecration. Now, older and wiser, the books I keep from my childhood, I keep precisely because of those precious inscriptions.It seemed fitting that, after years as a stay-at-home mom, I took a job as a high school library assistant. I pictured myself leading wide-eyed readers to new favorites. But most of the students who came to the library were the disruptive ones the study hall teachers didn’t want to deal with.One girl wanted a book on state laws. What did she want to look up? Statutory rape. Her boyfriend was eighteen and she was only fifteen. Was it worthwhile…
