Susan chats with Carol Tetlow in this week's episode about her life as a GP and her journey to becoming a published author. Carol persevered sending off her manuscripts to publishers and resisted the temptation to self publish. She was eventually rewarded with a contract from a Canadian publisher for her medical series set in fictitious Lambdale and the Teviotdale medical centre.
Since this episode was recorded, Carol's new series about tennis club intrigue, written originally for her sister, has been taken on by a UK publisher and we expect that to be released soon.
About the Guest:
Carol has retired from general practice, and lives in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with four labradors, two cats, ten donkeys, two ponies but just the one very long-suffering husband. She started writing using her work background as the theme for her novels.
She has five in her first series all based in Lambdale and the fictitious Teviotdale medical centre. Carol uses the market town of Masham as her inspiration and is careful to create characters who cannot be identified by the patients she once treated.
When she's not writing, Carol is busy playing tennis, walking the dogs, trying to hone her skills at carriage driving and catching up with friends. She is also kept busy giving talks on the Yorkshire Speaker's circuit.
