She is currently at work on her first book, “All I Ever Wanted: Relationships, Marriage, Family.” A children’s book will soon follow. Carol has also been honored for her work by the National Newspaper Association, St. Louis Association of Black Journalists, The Missouri Broadcasters Association, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, the Monsanto YWCA and she is a member of the YWCA Women’s Leader Class of 2005.
