Carole was born and raised in a small town outside Glasgow, Scotland, which explains her sophisticated sarcasm gene and her inherent cheekiness. Carole has written six books, including the acclaimed “Exodus Code: A Torchwood Novel” (BBC Books), “Hollow Earth” (Aladdin Books) a middle grade fantasy series, and the Sunday Times best-seller “Anything Goes” (Buster Books) in collaboration with her brother, John Barrowman (“Dr. Who,” “Torchwood,” and currently on “Arrow”). John and Carole have also collaborated on a comic “Captain Jack and the Selkie” (Titan). When Carole is not bossing around her wee brother, she writes a monthly crime fiction column and regular reviews and features for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Minneapolis Star Tribune and WTMJ4’s The Morning Blend (NBC affiliate). She contributed a chapter to the Hugo award-winning non-fiction anthology “Chicks Dig Time Lords,” and she and John penned the introduction for “Queers Dig Time Lords.” Carole is an English professor and Director of Creative Studies in Writing at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A voracious reader who still finds time to watch lots of SciFi television, Carole adheres to Elmore Leonard’s philosophy of writing. Adjectives tread softly. Adverbs run!
