Writing has been a passion of Carl's since his youth. When his first book was published in 1997 his publisher instructed him to "start a website," which led to his work as a blogger becoming as important to his career as his books. Now active on several social media platforms as well as maintaining his blog, Carl also is a sought-after speaker on spirituality and personal growth, having appeared throughout the United States as well as in Europe.

He grew up in Hampton, Virginia, and received a Bachelor of Arts in English from James Madison University and a Master of Arts in Professional Writing and Editing from George Mason University. Carl moved to Atlanta in 1993 and has been teaching classes through Emory Continuing Education since 2003. He currently lives in Stone Mountain with his wife and several well-pampered cats.
