Welcome to my world…



is my new novel coming out on October 30, 2020

from Inanna Publications.

What’s it about?

Precocious ten year old Vanessa Dudley-Morris knows lots of secrets. In 1949 when she and her family are forced to move into two rooms on the second floor of 519 Jarvis Street in Toronto, a genteel but somewhat rundown rooming house owned by a reclusive pianist, she learns a lot more.

Despite the family’s drastically reduced circumstances, her parents struggle to keep up their old standards. Threatened by blindness due to an eye condition, Vanessa is kept at home, tutored by an erratic succession of eccentrics, some with questionable credentials. Consequently, she spends a lot of time alone, wandering the dim corridors of the old house, silently listening at doors and watching the odd characters who live there. She becomes fascinated by a mother and son who move into a room on the third floor. Eventually she agrees to take secret notes from the son to his mysterious friend at her church, unwittingly unleashing a chain of events that leads to tragedy.

My first historical mystery, now available!


nEvermore! an anthology of mystery, murder and the macabre

Now available on Amazon 


This is an unusual project,  a joint venture between me, my co-editor Nancy Kilpatrick and EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing. In this partnership, Nancy and I launched a successful fundraising campaign to raise enough money to pay high professional rates to the best-selling writers we have lined up. As part of this, we had a competition for writers to enter their story for a chance for three winners to appear in the anthology, along with all the big names!

Once we acquired the stories, contracted with the writers, edited the stories and paid the authors,  we handed over the completed a manuscript to EDGE and they did their part: layout, ebook version, printing, distributing and such.

And now the e-book is available on Amazon, as an exclusive till October. Click here to buy your copy!

The Print book will be available in Canada in September, and in the US in October.

Stay tuned for appearances, launches, signings, readings and pop-up events maybe in your area!




I am a writer. I also do manuscript evaluations and editing (contact me at carosoles@rogers.com), teach  Writing the Novel 1 and 2 at George Brown College in Toronto, and I am active in dog rescue. But that’s another story..

    Hi, Caro–

    So I finally get to see how you look! This is Marsh Cassady from Los Hombres Press. Remember? It’s been a long, long time. I hope you’re doing well.

    Unfortunately, my partner Jim died about two-and-a-half yeas ago. I still miss him very much. During surgery for a broken hip, something happened that make it impossible for him to swallow. This is what ultimately killed him.

    Please let me know how you’re doing/

    Warmest wishes,
