It’s never too late to answer a calling. . . .

Hale and hearty child of the Adirondacks Carla Stockton lived at the base of a mountain and went to school across-town, which meant that she walked to school every day, through the ice and snow, rain and sleet, uphill both ways. And that forced her to dedicate herself to the art of perseverance. After spending her youth and young adulthood babysitting then raising her own children, teaching English, directing youth theater, writing for New England publications, she left the comfort of the Connecticut suburbs to re-create her life. Today, she has earned an M.F.A. in Creative Nonfiction from Columbia University and is building a portfolio of freelance publications, of blog site entries, and speaking engagements.

  1. Carla, I am intrigued by the way you consistently put new ideas into motion. You’re an excellent writer. I wish I had more time to respond, but TIME is of the essence. I will certainly look forward to reading your blog, but I can’t be a frequent responder. My schedule simply will not permit it. All the best, this one is a winner…and the trailer is captivating.


  2. Hello dear friend ~ I continue to enjoy your work. I am happy and proud to have been your classmate in Saranac Lake.

    John 🙂


  3. Carla; You are an Angel. I hope your family is well. I think of David and Helen often . Adriana as well. Your writing is Spot On. You manage to put in words things we all dream.
