Carol Ohmart Behan, a former high school English teacher at Edmeston Central School, left her classroom days behind in 2001 to pursue her lifelong passion for writing. She traveled to Glastonbury, England that same year to take part in a women’s writing retreat. Her experience included visits to sacred sites in and around Glastonbury…Stonehenge, Avebury, and the north coast of Cornwall. The profound impact of this trip led to her offering sacred pilgrimages for several years to the Southwest UK along with continuing to pursue her writing interests. She is the author of two novels. Her newest book, Answering Avalon’s Call: the Mystical Odyssey of an Earth-Healer, was published in June by O-Books, John Hunt Publishing. Carol also writes a blog, Notes of an Earth Pilgrim.
