Carol Psaros: Capturing southern Delaware one novel at a time
CAROL PSAROS is a two-time published author. She started her teaching career at Dover High School in 1966 and later became the Assistant Secretary of Education for the State of Delaware. She retired in 2000 from her state position, and picked up her pen. As a lifelong Delawarean, her love of the area comes through in her work. In her first novel for young girls, Come Back to Bethany, Carol narrates the history and ecology of Bethany Beach, Delaware through the eyes of three teenage girls living in different centuries. In her most recent novel, Chickens and Mosquitoes: The Art of Uncertain Times, Carol paints a picture of Delaware during the Great Depression, the lives of the men in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the budding poultry industry of Delaware, and the relationships of people surviving those challenging times, namely her parents and the celebrated artist Jack Lewis.
