Continuing in the holiday giveaways series, I’ve partnered on another similar giveaway from an author. Reading has always been a huge part of my life. I grew up surrounded by books; my mom had hundreds of art books, home, cooking, novels, anything you could imagine. Now, one of my best friends works at a huge NYC publishing house, and I am lucky enough to every once in a while, get a huge bouquet of books sent to me. And that is cooler then any rose. In the spirit of that love of reading, Style Island has partnered up with several authors this season to help promote their generous holiday giveaways! Read below to learn more about the author.
Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012 for her first book, award winning author Carole P. Roman started writing as a dare from one of her sons. Using an imaginary game she played with her grandson as a base, Captain No Beard was born.”Captain No Beard- An Imaginary Tale of a Pirate’s Life” has not only been named to Kirkus Best of 2012, it received the Star of Remarkable Merit, and won the Pinnacle Award for 2012. “Pepper Parrot’s Problem with Patience” Book 2 in the series, received 5 Stars from The ForeWord Review The Clarion Review. Strangers on the High Seas has won second place in the Rebecca’s Reads Choice Awards 2013. It has followed with six more books to the series.
Motivated by her love of yoga, Roman has written a book that not only teaches four poses, but shows how easy and accessible yoga can be.
Her non-fiction series, “If You Were Me and Lived in…” combines her teaching past with her love of exploration and interest in the world around us. The debut book in the series, “If You Were Me and Lived in…Mexico” has won the Pinnacle Award for Best in Children’s Non Fiction 2012. France, South Korea, and Norway. Rebecca’s Reads has given If You Were Me and Lived in…Norway an honorable mention in the 2013 Choice Awards. If You Were Me and lived in …France won second place. ForeWord Review has nominated If You Were Me and Lived in…France for best in children’s non fiction literature 2013.
Writing for children has opened up a whole second act for her. While she is still working in her family business, this has enabled her to share her sense of humor as well as love for history and culture with the audience she adores. Roman lives on Long Island with her husband and near her children.
Just in time for the beginning of the holiday seasons, Carole P. Roman is generously giving away two wonderful prizes for her readers. Grand prize is an Kindle Fire with a second prize to another winner of $100 Paypal.
