Carolyn Ferrante-Crymes is not just an author and a screenwriter; she is a wife and a mother of three children. While raising her children, trying to be a good role model for them, she has studied acting at Hartnell College in Monterey County, California. She also studied acting and improvisation along with her daughter at both the COCA Center for the Performing Arts and the Black Rep Theater in St. Louis, Missouri.
She hosted a TV talk show called Stir Up the Gifts, Focus On You on a local St. Louis cable channel, where she interviewed new artists and local business owners and community service organizations. Carolyn performed in a play in a café in Buckhead, Atlanta, called Cecelia over the Half Moon as the Fat Lady that sings opera (layered in overstuffed clothing). She was also honored with a Blue Ribbon, which is the highest award possible for performing a monologue at a speech meet when she was on the speech team in junior high school.
She has written six books for the purpose of movie scripts and is working hard to get those in theaters soon. She is a former student of Flo Valley Community College in St. Louis, majoring in filmmaking and acting. She has been acting, producing, and editing commercials, videos, and movie shorts at school, and she plans to submit some of her creations to film festivals in the Hollywood area and around the world.
Carolyn has an MBA (master’s degree in business administration) and a DBA (doctorate degree in business administration). Although her DJ personality name was Dr. C at KCFV Radio (89.5 The Wave) in Ferguson, Missouri, she doesn’t care about a position where she’s called Dr. Ferrante-Crymes, she just wants to inspire and/or make an audience smile via her writings.
