My name is Carol, and I’m addicted to Romance.

I grew up in the Hudson Valley area of New York, surrounded by “city folk,” like my Manhattanite mom and Bronx-native Dad, who taught me to be sweet on the outside, yet tough on the inside.

As a result, I’m often gifted sassy labels like “firecracker” or “feisty,” which I choose to take as a compliment, due to my Irish/Eastern European heritage.

My romantic history is as real (and complicated) as that of the heroines in my novels.

Carol Maloney Scott I have no concept of the passage of time when I am writing.

The worst thing - my bladder doesn't cooperate, and interrupts my meditative flow.

As a little girl I wrote non-stop, churning out story after story. Then it all stopped in adolescence - so I had writer's block for about 30 years.

Now the flood gates have opened, and the universe has unplugged my creative blockage - and the words are flying out of me. In the car - I have to pull off the road. In the shower - I need waterproof paper. In bed - I dream of new stories and have to sleep with my iPhone and it's many lists.

So that bitch is history. The words are flowing like a waterfall or the liquor at an Irish wedding. I am no longer expecting any dry days ahead, now that I have rediscovered my first love. (less)

Almost everyone has done it. You break up. You try to find someone else, get interested in new hobbies, and spend more times with friends and family.


But you see him out. You miss her. You hear your song. A picture triggers unresolved feelings. A friend says she saw him out with someone else. She calls begging you to meet and “talk.”


And there you are – boomerang to the face. Pow. Out cold. Back...

“a woman would have to be a blind lesbian nun to not be affected by him.”
Carol Maloney Scott, There Are No Men

“I may be taller than her on my knees. Does she need a man she can climb?”
Carol Maloney Scott, There Are No Men
