Carolyn is a Brooklyn-based writer, book collaborator and editorial consultant.
She’s the author of Wired to Create: Unravelling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind (Penguin 2016), written with psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman. The book was published in 10 foreign languages, and The New York Times called it a "satisfying overview of creativity research that is likely to provide nuggets of wisdom to even the most seasoned creative spirit."
For nearly six years, she worked at the The Huffington Post as a Senior Writer covering psychology, health and well-being, spirituality and personal development. Her writing has also appeared in publications like Scientific American, TIME, Harvard Business Review, Inc., The New Republic, Quartz, Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and Yoga Journal and she’s discussed her work at TEDx, Talks@Google, Harvard Public Health Forum, Yale Department of Psychology, The Alchemist's Kitchen and Consciousness Hacking NYC, as well as on MSNBC, The TODAY Show and The History Channel.
Carolyn also earned research credits for her contributions to Arianna Huffington's New York Times bestselling books The Sleep Revolution and Thrive, and recently wrote the foreword to a new edition of the classic philosophical work, The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. Currently, her main focus is editorial consulting, book proposal development and book collaboration — working with thought leaders across a range of disciplines to take their ideas from concept to creation.
Carolyn graduated from McGill University in Montreal with an Honours degree in philosophy. When she’s not writing, you can find her doing yoga and breathwork, reading metaphysical books, solo traveling, or cooking and hanging out with her husband at their home, a converted Catholic church in Williamsburg.
