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

When Carole retired in 2005, she never dreamed she’d write fiction. But three characters: Peggy Pryor, Brad Duello and Sisy Duello insisted their story would help people face a future in uncertain times.  They were prophetic.  Each day brings the same chaos to our lives that shaped their story.
