A California native and a graduate of Yale University, Carole began her professional writing career in New York, when Joan Rivers responded to her cold submission by buying three of her jokes. She was soon writing sketch comedy that was performed in clubs and cabarets all over town, including Lewis Black’s legendary West Bank Downstairs Theatre Bar.
Carole has written several one acts, including Why the Beach Boys are Like Opera, and The Battle of Bull Run Always Makes Me Cry, which has been anthologized, included in two textbooks and performed throughout the United States, Canada and Asia. Her one act, Don’t Say Another Word, was included in 2009’s Summer Shorts 3 Festival of One Act Plays at 59E59th Street in Manhattan. Doesn’t Anyone Know What A Pancreas Is? Carole’s full-length play based on the characters in Don’t Say Another Word has had readings at Ensemble Studio Theatre in LA and New York as had her most recent full-length, We Used To Be Fun.
Carole has also worked in television, writing scripts for Ed Zwick’s Relativity, ABC’s daytime drama Port Charles, Fox TV’s short lived and critically acclaimed Opposite Sex and the CBS television movie Barbara Taylor Bradford’s A Secret Affair starring Janine Turner.
