Author Biography

Carol Denise Mitchell is a journalist and published author. Mitchell has a thirty-year writing career that included writing books on employment law and news broadcasting. She wrote What Happened to Suzy winning praise; and, a coveted (2011) book award for its' message of healing and hope. In Oakland, California Mitchell worked alongside slain newspaper Editor, Chauncey Bailey, as a news reporter for Soul Beat. Mitchell was reared in Los Angeles, California, during the Civil Rights Movement. She recalls how living in Watts, California, during this era in American history, was a motivating influence behind her writing career along with her father's illiteracy.
"I remember my father asking me to write his name. That and the Watts Riot, when the city imploded for three long, life-changing days were both the impetus for my writing career," says the writer. "Encouraged by my father; I knew this kind of degradation and Urban ruin, was not going to be remedied fast enough for the kind of changes the community deserved. One year after the riots, we moved to Pomona, California." Mitchell concludes that being a living witness to an infamous part of Watts history left an indelible imprint on her wanting to be a part of the change that would allow her father to read and allow her to be an integral part in helping her old community via writing and memorializing such events first-hand. In 1977, Mitchell moved to the Northern California, Bay Area to launch her successful writing career. Mitchell resides in Phoenix, Arizona

Noah: True Love Never Dies by Carol Mitchell is the story of a woman who is trying to find the right love, but love always seems to evade her. Tiffany had a difficult life. Living with a single parent, trying her best to provide for her family, Tiffany always had at least one supportive person in her life. First it was her grandmother, then it was friends at school, but as she grew older, she started to crave the love of one person who would be only for her, forever. After years of loving and being loved, she finds Piper and decides to marry him. But just a day before their wedding, she meets Noah, the love of her life. What must Tiffany do now? Can she go ahead and get married to Piper or should she leave everything behind for Noah?

What I loved the most about this novel was the fact that the main character, Tiffany, was open to finding love and made herself available, even from a very young age. She was not afraid to be vulnerable and she was ready to take a chance; even the hardest of trials could not stop her from finding the love that she deserved. Her growth was smooth and well rounded, which made her a great addition to the story. I enjoyed the flow of the story, how the author let Tiffany tell her own story and let her guide the reader. Reading her story in first person narrative made it personal. It was almost as if I was talking to a friend and listening to her as she told her story to me. I enjoyed Noah: True Love Never Dies by Carol Mitchell because it felt like I lived the story with Tiffany and knew her. It was brilliant.
