Columnists - Jo Carroll

Jo Carroll has lived in Marlborough for over thirty years.  She worked for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service until her mid-50s, when she gave up work, house and car to travel round the world for a year.  She returned with more stories than people to listen to them, and so wrote a book entitled Over the Hill and Far Away.  She now tries to travel during the winter and enjoys writing and reading in Wiltshire during the warmer months.  You can find more on her website: www.jocarroll.co.uk
