Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, born in Catford, England, grew up in southern California, where she studied art and psychology at UCLA. She is the author of 19 books, a variety of which are used as inspirational texts in universities and healing centers worldwide, and are featured along with the writings of seven other acclaimed woman writers in a continuing course, "The Other Half of the Sky: Eight Woman Writers," taught at Swansea University in Wales by poet and publisher Peter Thabit Jones. Carolyn's poetry and prose have been nominated for The Pushcart Prize, and her first book, Climates of the Mind, (iUniverse, 2005), was translated into Braille by the Library of Congress. Her writings have been translated into Korean, Romanian, Japanese, Italian, Sicilian, Chinese, Arabic, Bengali, and Bulgarian. The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University exhibited a retrospective of Carolyn's paintings and drawings and published an exhibition catalog, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld: Visions from Big Sur, with art from the exhibit and a commentary by museum curator and director, Michael Zakian, PhD. Carolyn's art appears on book covers and is featured internationally in galleries, museums, private collections, and multimedia.
