This Website belongs to C. A. Newsome, author of the Lia Anderson Dog Park Mysteries. It details my painterly pursuits before an accident and head injury forced a segue into a writing career. I have ignored this site for close to 10 years and was going to dismantle it, but it keeps getting hits. I am especially proud of my New Leaf Project and Urban Mirage. If you poke around the site, I hope you'll visit those pages. The contact links (some of which have been repaired) were broken for years, so if anyone has tried to contact me through this site in recent years, I apologize. You can reach me via carolannnewsome AT netzero DOT net or through my author website,
