Port Townsend, Washington
An “Army Brat,” Carol O’Dell spent her childhood in a number of countries. She wrote her first haiku in 1999. Several of these haiku were published in The Heron’s Nest. Carol enjoys living with her family, husband Christopher Herold, and daughter Vanessa Herold in Port Townsend, Washington. She finds that working is getting in the way of writing haiku these days, but hopes to have more time in the future.
