About Carissa

My mom first looked into my eyes on September 30, 1973 in rural North Carolina

I spent most of my childhood days running barefoot and chasing fireflies

I married my high school sweetheart, then realized he was lost without his goalie jersey

UNC-G will always be a fond memory: Dr Cannon, Gamma Sigma Sigma and Yum Yum’s hotdogs

I sold specialty cheeses after college, and I was scolded in Wisconsin for asking where the margarine was

A nice Swedish lady (now my boss) interviewed me in New York City and hired me to build the business in the US

Finally… back to my biology degree roots!

Sweden, Germany, France, Greece, South Africa… always a new adventure

My work and play has taken me to San Francisco, leaving behind my trusty Jeep, my house and everything I know

I love to stare at the Bay Bridge at night, run by the bay in the morning, eat fresh strawberries from the Farmer’s Market, and dream

36 years, memories galore, love found and love lost, amazing sights and experiences… I have the whole world in my hands.

    Hi Carissa! We met at the Brushy Mtn. Apple Festival in Wilkesboro. I was selling copies of my novel, “Chop, Chop”.

    Anyway, you asked me to check out your blog and become friends with you on FaceBook. Sorry it took me so long, but I lost the piece of paper I wrote your info down on and have just found it this morning!

    Could you befriend me on FB? There are a lot of Carissa Jones’, but I think I’m the only Leeann Cronk on FaceBook.

    Your blog looks so great! I will also pass it on to my poet friend for her to look at. Hope you’re doing great!

      Thanks Leeann! I must admit I haven’t found a free moment to read “Chop, Chop” but I promise I will. Maybe I’ll take it to San Francisco next year and read it in my downtime. Next year sounds strange but it is merely a few weeks away.

      I’ll look you up on FB. I’m glad you liked my blog. I hope to hear from your poet friend! Take care.
