CAROLYN QUINN grew up with the music of non-stop show tunes playing in the background in Roselle and Scotch Plains, NJ, a member of a large, outrageous and rollicking extended family. She became interested in theatrical history after participating in the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Summer Music Theater Workshop as a teen, which later inspired her to major in English – with a concentration on Theater and Media – at Kean University. She has worked as an Administrator in a variety of positions that included on-the-job executive ghost writing and manuscript editing. Carolyn just completed a new book for middle-grade students. She is also the author of MAMA ROSE’S TURN: The True Story of America’s Most Notorious Stage Mother, an extensive and well-researched biography of Rose Thompson Hovick, whose colorful life inspired the musical Gypsy. It’s available from University Press of Mississippi. If you’d like to see her photographic images, which she loves to take, they are available on her Fine Art Photography website, http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/carolynquinn.html. Carolyn resides in The Big Apple.
