Welcome! Thank you for visiting carofeely.com. I’m passionate about the environment, family dynamics, organic farming, wine, and in more recent years, yoga. These threads, and climate change, feature strongly in my current work.
There are two books next up on my publication roster, ‘This Miracle of Life’, a prequel to ‘Grape Expectations’ and then ‘Finding Zen’, the 4th in the Vineyard series. Books ideas I am working on include a novel series on climate-change and an environment guidebook.
I invite you to join our mailing list and follow me on Instagram. Our book mailing list subscribers get access to free gifts including book club guides, free chapters, notice of new books, events and more. Yoga list subscribers receive a pocket guide, subscriber only videos, event, and more.

Caro on her development as a writer
At high school, I was co-founder of the first magazine published by students which covered chocolate obsessions and funny, eccentric things that happened at boarding school. After university I wrote articles for newspapers and magazines related to my career in IT consulting. I started writing books in Dublin in 2003 while on maternity leave but it took a gift of Maeve Binchy’s ‘writers club’ from my husband Sean in 2007, to get my first book Grape Expectations into good enough shape to attract a publisher,
Through writing and sharing our experience I spread the word about living lightly on the earth. Each small gesture may not seem like much, but it makes a difference: from avoiding unnecessary packaging to demanding organic food from your local shop and restaurant. If we don’t demand change, it won’t happen, and our earth will slowly – or quickly – be poisoned by chemicals, plastic, and fossil fuels.
Environmental Book recommendations
Books I highly recommend reading to inform yourself on environmental issues:
