Carole S. McCauley ’62

  Carole Spearin McCauley, a prolific writer and resident of Greenwich, CT, for 42 years, died Friday, August 24, 2018.

  Born April 18, 1939 and raised in the Berkshires to a French-Canadian family, she graduated from Antioch College and earned an M.A. in writing from Manhattanville College in Purchase New York.

   Carole was a lifelong writer, initially reporting for The Berkshire Eagle when she was 16, in the publishing industry in Manhattan, where she also managed the Grail Art-Bookshop, before forging her career as an author.

  Her passion and forte was creative writing (literary fiction, short stories, poetry) and medical nonfiction. She published 13 novels (her latest is How She Saved Her Life, available via Amazon) and has appeared in about 200 periodicals and anthologies. Time Magazine called her novel Happenthing "probably the world's only computer-assisted feminist novel."

  Carole is predeceased by her loving husband, Arthur Leo McCauley, and survived by their son, Brendan Spearin McCauley, daughter-in-law Nadya, and their two children. Carole cared about people, their lives, and books. Her Celebration of Life was August 31 at 31 Arch Street, Greenwich. Carole, you are loved and will be missed dearly.
