Independence Public Library

Author Interview: Judy Carroll

June 30, 2017

Judy Carroll grew up on a working farm in Kansas. After college, she worked in Wichita for Channel 8, KPTS and as a paralegal. After moving to Independence, Kansas, Carroll worked at a variety of part-time jobs before working as a paralegal for 28 years. She and her husband, Dan, are the parents of four children and have eight, soon to be nine, grandchildren.

These short pieces are taken from my blog, Family, Laughter and Laundry. As the mother of four and grandmother of eight, family is important to me. Laughter is important in a family, and whether, it is important or not, laundry is also a part of family life.
