About the author

Carrie Garvin

<p>Carrie Garvin lives along the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband and several rescue dogs. First published as a newspaper columnist, she wrote a &ldquo;Home-Tips&rdquo; in the Washington, D.C. area just before DIY shows skyrocketed. From her experiences of&nbsp;home building, married for over forty years, and passionate about rescued animals, three things center each of her novels: a clean and wholesome romance, a sweet love story surrounded by either a farmhouse, a cabin, a lighthouse, etc., and the adoration of animals. She has her B.A. in Communications from the University of Maryland.</p><p>Photo credit: Carrie holding their doxie, Sam, with her little brother and older sister during a summer vacation in West Virginia.</p>
