About Ute Carson

Ute Maria Elisabeth Gräfin von Hardenberg-Carson was born on the Baltic Coast in Köslin, Pomerania, shortly after the beginning of World War II.

As Russian forces swept toward central Europe, she fled westward with her mother and grandmother, settling in what was to become West Germany. There she went to school and attended the Universities of Hamburg and Mainz.

Immigrating to America in 1962, she completed her masters at the University of Rochester, becoming a college instructor of German Language and Literature, and Women's Studies.

A writer from youth, Carson's first story was published in 1977. For the past 26 years she has continuously published stories and essays in journals, magazines, and books. Her latest publications include "Gypsy Spirit" in Falling in Love Again - Love the Second Time Around, and "A Mantra" in Arts and Letters Magazine.

Colt Tailing, finalist for the 2003 Peter Taylor Book Award, is Carson's first novel; In Transit her second. She is currently at work on a third, Letters to a Dying Friend.

Carson has traveled the world and has lived in Germany, France, Scotland, New York, Vermont, and Florida. She now resides in Texas, with her husband. They have three daughters, five grandchildren, two horses, and a number of cats.
