Carolfrances Likins

Carolfrances is a retired elementary school teacher, screenwriter, poet, children’s book writer, novelist, and activist for peace and justice. Daughter of an artist, she remembers being fascinated with lessons from her mom about perspective drawing, as well as a simple trick to avoid foreshortening in photography – all of which she is eager to share with you.
