Carole Mackin, author of "Five Years Lying"Carole Mackin who was born in St. Charles, Mo. at the mouth of the Missouri River has come up in the world. She now lives with her husband, Mark, in the Missouri headwaters near Helena, Mt.  Carole is a Geochemist who spent a long career writing  scientific documents. She has also published several true Montana tales and a poem or two.

After retiring in 2005, she never dreamed there was a book in her future. But three characters: Peggy Pryor, Brad Duello and Sisy Duello appeared and insisted their story be told.  Their goal was to help people face uncertain times and they were prophetic.  Each day brings more of the same chaos that they warned of in telling their story.
