Carla Swafford

Carla Swafford’s a lithe twenty-nine year old with long auburn hair and sparkling dark eyes who loves dancing with her gypsy friends. Geez! Can you tell I love writing fiction? Now for the real stuff. I live in Birmingham and love being a member of all three Alabama RWA chapters. I’m a two-time GRW Maggie finalist and feel I’m so close to being published, I’m tempted to buy the little gold stickers that read “Autographed Copy.”
