Meet the Author

Carole Townsend is a columnist for the Gwinnett Daily Post, the second largest newspaper in Georgia and a freelance writer whose articles have appeared in Ladies Home Journal and Teen Magazine. She has been described in her writing style as a cross between Lewis Grizzard and Erma Bombeck. She has established a reputation as one of the up-and-coming writers in the humor genre and has earned a national following.

Southern Fried White Trash is her first book. Written in her unique humorous style that has earned her a readership around the nation for her eclectic wit, the book is a collection of humorous but real life stories that have happened at weddings, funerals, and holidays and other family gatherings. Townsend writes in a style that sees the humor in situations and lets the reader know that it is OK to laugh at life’s absurdities. Townsend and Southern Fried White Trash have been featured in the Los Angeles Times, CNN, and numerous television and radio appearances across the country.

She is busy writing her next book, Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear, that is a “painfully humorous survival guide to successfully navigating life as a woman.” Red Lipstick and Clean Underwear takes a humorous but incisive look at “how women were taught to view and prepare for life as young girls, vs. the reality of being a woman and handling all that we do, every day, day in and day out. As adults, we are expected to handle, juggle, balance, earn, mother and be caregivers.” It will be released in June of 2012.

Townsend is a graduate of Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN, with a degree in psychology, and holds a Masters Degree in Journalism. Prior to becoming a full-time writer, she Directed Marketing for The Baer Group, LLC and Western Digital Corp., both in Atlanta, and a major international software manufacturer.
She resides in Lawrenceville, Georgia with her husband, four children and two rescue dogs.

    I met Carole at the Barnes & Noble book signing in Alpharet


    I met Carole at the Barnes & Noble book signing in Alpharetta, Ga. Saturday. She was very fun to talk with. I started reading the book Saturday night and could not put it down. I have never laughed so hard at a book. If you have a family get together coming up you have to get the book and read before going. You will see exactly what the book is all about. I swear she was talking about my family!!!!!

    Laugh out loud funny

    If you are from the south as I proudly am you will recognize the people the author is writing about. They are either your own kin or your friends. Sometimes all you can say to these people is "well bless your heart". If you're southern you've got to read this book, it will make you laugh.

    I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Started reading it on Friday night, and was (sadly) finished on Sunday...spent my whole weekend buried in it!

    The Author Carole Townsend has a delightful way of seeing the world through a true Southern Lady's eyes. I was born and raised in Georgia, and can so relate to her observations. Down south we just have a different way of doing things. And Mrs Townsend's ability to capture those differences in such a smart and funny way, really brought a smile to my face.

    If you're a fan of Lewis Grizzard, Fannie Flagg, or even to a lesser extent Jeff Foxworthy, do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

    Thankfully, I paid only $1.99 for this "trash"!!

    Completely boring! The author tries to be clever and funny, but falls way short. For the review to even attempt to place this author in the league of Erma Bombeck is disgusting. Bad humor writing is painful to read.
