Hear us Roar

Apr 13, 2023

This week’s podcast features Carol Orange (A Discerning Eye, Cavan Bridge Press, October 2020). Carol’s background in both art (art books in London, art dealer in Boston) and publishing (editorial assistant at a Big Five house) provided plenty of ideas for her art heist novel centering around the looting of 13 masterpieces from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum over 30 years ago. We discuss how she learned the craft of writing, the importance of networking and community, and how to handle self-doubt as well as the insights (and fun)you can have during the revision process.

Carol Orange is the award-winning author or A Discerning Eye. The novel was inspired by the world’s largest unsolved theft at Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Carol has worked in the art world for more than twenty years. She began as a research editor on art books in London and later became an art dealer in Boston. She has an MBA from Simmons University and worked as a marketing manager at the Polaroid Corporation. Along with concert pianist Virginia Eskin who played Chopin’s music, she read excerpts from George Sand’s novels in three salons at the French Library in Boston.
