Carol Goodman grew up on Long Island, attended public school, and started writing at age nine, when her fourth grade teacher introduced the topic Creative Writing. She wrote a ninety-page, crayon-illustrated epic entitled The Adventures of the Magical Herd in which a girl named Carol lives with a herd of magical horses. She knew from that moment that she wanted to be a writer. Goodmans books have been nominated for the IMPAC award twice, the Simon & Schuster/Mary Higgins Clark award, and the Nero Wolfe Award; The Seduction of Water won the Hammett Prize in 2003. She still lives on Long Island, with her husband, poet/hedge fund manager Lee Slonimsky, her stepdaughter, Nora, her daughter, Maggie, a poodle, Zoë, and a lilac point Siamese cat named Sassy.
