About the Author: Carolyn Ellis, a native Tennessean, is a first-time author whose love of photography began at age 10 when she used an Ansco Press Camera for a 4-H project. After college, Carolyn worked for a Public Broadcasting television station and honed her photojournalism skills in the Public Relations Department. Those skills would be enhanced at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York while working as a Research Assistant on a Local Government grant project. Moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma, Carolyn discovered yet another aspect of photography, that of photographing newborn babies at several Tulsa hospital nurseries. Transferring with this nationwide company back home to Tennessee, she has spent 23 years photographing babies. As "Such Sweet Sorrow" began to unfold, Carolyn focused her writing on character-driven Southern fiction, recalling a beloved college Professor's constant reprimand of "who's story is this, and why do we care?" For the past four years, another passion has entered Carolyn's life. She is a Historical Interpreter at The Hermitage, the home of President Andrew Jackson near Nashville, Tennessee.
