My new short story collectionShadows in the Southis now available at your favorite bookseller. 

From the richly imaginative mind of Caroline Smith, comes a brilliant short story collection that will delight, entertain and enthrall you.

These seven stories weave myth and realism into a modern Southern Gothic world, reimagined. They are filled with the tragedy and struggle of what make us human, always with unexpected twists and turns.

Gripping and darkly funny, these are stories of men and women who know what it means to suffer and remind us of our shared humanity through that experience. Exploring mythos and morality through a contemporary lens, these characters take us on a suspenseful journey wondering just what will happen next with the turn of each page.

Welcome to Willow Creek Rehabilitation Ranch. Owner and proprietor Katherine Ryan has everything she wants in life—almost. The single mom of two works hard to provide for her children on their Wyoming ranch. She values coffee, books, and her children above all others (not necessarily in that order). Her passion for healing, though, has led her down the path of rehabilitating racehorses and developing a therapeutic riding program for kids. The persistent thorn in her side, however, is that for the last five years her ex-husband, Ethan, has still worked and lived on the property with her.


With a sister who’s a famous Hollywood actress and a business deal that pulls her down to LA, she’s talked into a party where she runs into a man she’s known for most of her life, but has been relegated to a memory. Fate has some strange cards to play after Katherine returns to Wyoming, however, and life on the ranch.
