Scarlo Folsom is a budding author from Portland, Oregon. Growing up she loved writing about her imagination and sharing with her sisters. Now living with her service dog, Frankie, and husband. Her dreams were not allowed to be pursued as a child. Now as an adult she is working hard to fulfill her childhood dreams.
She finds writing about her childhood dreams in her memoir, ‘Cornerstone of Hope’, has become a beacon of hope to inspire herself and others.
While in her early teen years she started writing stories of mystery and thrill. She had the blessing of being able to share with Walt Morey. He told her to keep at it. She was immediately inspired to continue writing, despite obstacles.
She is currently finishing a picture poetry book based on her travels. She is also working on a mystery series based on her life, travel, and work experience.
She declares Portland her city and her people. She is an advocate for physical and mental illness, organ donation, networking, and the people of her city. Her desire is to heal herself while healing others through her written works.
When she is not busy writing, she can be found walking her service dog, Frankie, doing housework, or tending to her disabled husband. He has been an inspiration for her to work her imagination and stretch it outside the box, which she recommends anyone to do.
