Author Bio: 

Carol Clark Roberts, the daughter of missionary parents in China, spent her early and teen-age years in a China occupied by Japanese forces followed by a brutal civil war and Communist takeover. Forced to flee, Carol’s family landed up in the southern Philippines for two years and then back to the United States. There Carol attended college, married, and started a family. For fifteen years she wrote and photographed original filmstrip stories for schools and churches. Later she turned to writing six novels, mostly inspired by her love for China. Her first published novel, For the Love of China, came out of her experiences and research. She has returned to China twelve times, finding locations where family members were born and died, and locating buildings in which she had lived and attended school. She is the mother and step-mother of eight and grandmother of fifteen. Carol currently lives in Santa Cruz, California.
