About Carol Ann

Under Carol Ann McCarthy’s charming guidance, the Art in Life is put within reach of all of us. Her path to sharing joy is one that is a delight to follow, with many treasures along the way.


Carol Ann currently lives in Hudson, a historic town in Northeast Ohio. Her home was built in 1853 and sits graciously amidst rolling lawn and very old majestic trees. Here she lives quietly with her husband. Carol Ann is mother to two grown sons. She has a degree in music education and has taught in public and private schools in Cleveland and Boston.  She has also been assistant to the Director of Education for the Cleveland Orchestra and has written music for children produced in schools and on public television. These days she shares her love of music by teaching piano and by directing a children’s church choir.

Carol Ann has a great love for the arts, nature, the beauty in life, creativity, imagination, ideas shared, and her fellow man. She believes strongly that our purpose on earth is to know God, to be of service to others and to do our work with joy. One way we can all be of service to others is to share our joys whatever they are.

It is Carol Ann’s hope that by sharing the joy she finds in letters others will discover joy as well. This is her mission… to share joy. She invites you into her world of letters by attending one of her talks and urges you to look into your heart and write … for when you give good things come back to you.
