Carey Yazeed

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, United States


What do you get when you cross a wife, mother and social worker...burnout! I've been an avid reader since I could understand the written language and thus developed a huge appetite for books, but instead of following my passion when entering college, I decided that I wanted to save the world and became a social worker instead. After 12 years of listening to other people problems I finally realized that I wasn't helping a single soul, because none of them wanted to be saved. I found myself tithering on the verge of a nervous breakdown, but thanks to my loving and supportive husband, we decided it would be more lucrative to open a book store instead. For the past year I have had the opportunity to enjoy my past time without a boss breathing down my neck and meeting some wonderful people along the way. Several of the local authors encouraged me to take up writing, and thanks to that loving husband again, who stumbled across an old acquaintance who happened to be the editor of a small weekly newspaper that was looking for an avid reader to do book reviews for his publication. As they say...the rest is history and here I am!
