Isobel Carr

USA flag

Isobel Carr is originally from Boulder Creek, California, but she's lived in the Bay Area (San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland) since finishing undergrad at Hollins College in Virginia and moving "home"; for graduate school. Her BA is in philosophy and English (wrote her thesis on the Absurd Skeptical Hero as the living embodiment of the existentialist), but she minored in creative writing and history. Isobel lives in a 1916 bungalow in Oakland, California (which she's slowly restoring) with a giant dog named Clancy (he's half-Neapolitan Mastiff and half-Bullmastiff and weighs in at around 170lbs), a crowntail betta named Nigel, and Nigel's minions, the kuhli loaches (who can't be told apart, and thus do not get names). If you're ever at The Heart and Dagger by Lake Merritt and you see a woman with a giant, dark-brindle dog, come over and say hi, there's a 99% chance it's Isobel (or her sister or best friend, who also have dogs from the same litter as Clancy).
