CAROLYN QUINN, Author and Fine Art Photographer, grew up in Roselle and Scotch Plains, NJ, a member of an outrageous and rollicking extended family. She has a B.A. in English and Theater/Media from Kean University. Carolyn wrote MAMA ROSE'S TURN: The True Story of America's Most Notorious Stage Mother after extensively researching the life of Rose Thompson Hovick, whose colorful and unorthodox parenting style inspired the musical Gypsy. She is a member of The Ziegfeld Society, and serves on the Advisory Council of the Boo-Arts Theatre. Carolyn lives in New York City. MAMA ROSE'S TURN is her first book and she is currently hard at work on a second!
