BIO

   Carla J. Underwood was born in Indiana and grew up in a small town in the northwest corner of the state. Because of that, she learned both the challenges and the rewards of living in a small community.  She applied that knowledge in her 1950's-era series The Willowdale, Indiana Stories: Mrs. Ivey's Café, A Dogs Life, & A Granddaughter's Promise.

  After high school, she left Indiana to attend the University 

of Montana.  She earned a B.A. degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology and met her furture husband.  They married soon after graduation and lived and worked in several states.  

   Tired of the nomadic life, they returned to Montana and built a home in a small, rural community not far from the university where they met.  Once again, they live in the state they love and are surrounded by family.
