Carol Goodman is the author of several beautifully written and well received novels, The Lake of Dead Languages, The Seduction of Water, The Drowning Tree, and The Ghost Orchid. Her self-described "literary thrillers" are often set in an academic milieu in the Northeastern USA and are true page-turners.
Carol Goodman graduated with a B.A. in Latin from Vassar College. She taught Latin for several years in Austin, Texas, before she returned to school to earn an M.F.A. in fiction from the New School University. Goodman currently teaches writing and works as a writer-in-residence for Teachers & Writers. She lives on Long Island.
