...Nominee, Harold L. Brown, Award of Excellence...

Not long ago, Caroline did the unthinkable: she submitted a first draft to a well-respected international screenwriting contest. 

It placed.   This native New Yorker rolled the dice and bet on herself. 

"...New York is always hopeful. Always believes ... something good ..." - Dorothy Parker

 

... Bona-fide first-generation professional degree graduate turned  -

multi-award-winning storyteller ...

 

Caroline's paternal grandfather (nonno)  who, after honorable service under the Italian flag during WWI and earning numerous medals of distinction for valor -  bestowed the single degree of Knight by Italy's President in 1973: Order of Vittorio Veneto - Cavaliere ... and  -

Caroline's father, a humble hero who saved himself and other Italian soldiers from Nazi capture while serving honorably under the Italian flag ... these two men; father and son ... though no longer living, contribute to Caroline's drive and...

...fuel the indomitable ancestral spirit running through her veins and...

...like Sicily...

...a rich, fertile storied land where open secrets whisper in the sepia breeze...

...Caroline's light shines through her writing...the way it began since a child ...still...

...a Sicilian girl...dawn's ardor ...

 

"I would love to spend all my time writing to you; I'd love to share all that goes through my mind, all that weighs on my heart, all that gives air to my soul; phantoms of art, dreams that would be so beautiful if they could come true." - Luigi Pirandello

 

... fiercely loyal ... uniquely exceptional ... flaws and all ...

Writing since before she could walk - well ... scribbling ... as her mom says....winning poetry contests, cooking contests, recipe contests, awarded for gardening design, writing plays, creating abstract art, make-up, costume and set-design, ghostwriting, acting, modeling {"Guess I'm only good for my parts, huh?!"} ... placing in state-wide speech competitions... 

... the writing muses chose Caroline at a young age ...

* At eight-years-old, Caroline won her first poetry contest, sponsored by the American Red Cross, and was awarded $20.00. With her contest winnings, she fulfilled her quest as best she could and found the closest thing to Dorothy's ruby slippers at the time ... Caroline still buys shoes...

* From the age of nine, Caroline quickly took to playing viola.

* Among other things, Caroline, after years and years of intensive speech and language therapy to... overcome a debilitating stutter... which, although 99% cured - she still considers herself a life-long stutterer...and empathizes with those bullied, gaslighted, doxxed, stalked...

 

...a modern-day Renaissance woman...

 

* After earning her Bachelor of Arts at New York University - Comparative Religion (class representative - with honors)  she later earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Law and would eventually earn her Juris Doctor with the blessing of the CA Bar ... 

[ pro bono, Caroline assists a wrongfully incarcerated individual (now out) navigate the legal maze to obtain rightful compensation ...in addition, elder law, which casts a wide net: her cogent and salient advice - continues to be spot on ... ]

* For decades and counting, Caroline continues to curate wherever she lives with items she collects from her travels, secures at auctions,  receives as gifts, and simply from having a trained eye for spotting coal and diamonds...  a tastemaker since grade school ...  Caroline transforms any space into her brand of unique  ... in addition, Caroline sews by hand,  can reupholster furniture, refinish wood, paint and frame artwork. She's built an enviable wardrobe suited for her - from next-to-nothing ... And, her cooking - beyond sublime ...

* In between the lines, Caroline fiddles with the viola, while her son gently convinces her to begin French horn lessons so they can play together...no contrivance here: Caroline's nonno played the horn, had a roarin' band in Sicily -- it's in the blood! 

 

 

 

* The NOVA Fest 2021: Nominee,  Harold L. Brown Award of Excellence, First Time Writer

* American Zoetrope Screenplay Competition 2020

* RIFF 2021 (Richmond International Film Festival)   

* Filmmatic  Drama Season 6

and over a dozen more ... at last count ...

 

As Caroline deftly writes from the emotional core ... from the heart -  readers discover at least one romantic thread; one love story, one tug of the heart string in every genre she tackles ...

 

...Caroline is an endurance writer...

"...There is a Fountain of Youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will surely have defeated age..."    - Sophia Loren
