From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Book of Christmas Virtues

Who Is Carol McAdoo Rehme?

No matter which hat she’s wearing—dedicated writer and editor, nonprofit director, or public speaker—Carol McAdoo Rehme peppers everything she does with an enthusiasm for the power of story.

An active freelancer who has found her niche in the inspirational market, Carol is a prolific contributor to the Chicken Soup series. Her work also appears widely in other anthologies. In addition, Carol edited Chicken Soup for the Bride’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the African American Soul, and Chicken Soup for the Mothers of Preschoolers Soul.

Besides coauthoring several gift books, she occasionally writes for magazines and some children’s publications. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Book of Christmas Virtues is her first project to coauthor for Chicken Soup.

When she isn’t busy writing stories, Carol is actively telling them. She presents at educational and corporate conferences and a variety of other venues including museums, dude ranches, libraries, schools, and civic clubs. As the Traveling Storyteller for the Loveland Public Library, Carol directed a park outreach program for ten years, serving thousands of children each summer.

Her current passion revolves around the frail elderly. Carol directs a vibrant nonprofit agency—Vintage Voices, Inc.—whose primary program, Silver Linings for Golden Agers, targets residents of long-term care facilities. This grant-driven arts model provides engaging thematic activities that are interactive and energetic, with a strong focus on sharing stories.

Kansas transplants, Carol and her husband, Norm, claim deep roots in Colorado where they raised their four children—Kyle, Katrina, Kayla and Koy. Carol now proudly wears new hats that read: Mother-in-law and Grammy.
