Carol Cowan

Joined 5 years ago from Nashville, TN




I honed my writing chops over the course of five years as staff writer for custom magazine and media publishing company Journal Communications Inc., based in Franklin, TN. During my stint at Journal, I wrote about everything from wind and solar energy farms in California to the famed distilleries along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail; how to organize kids’ rooms to where to find the best farm-to-fork fare in Asheville, NC; civil war reenactments to happening live music venues; and lots, lots more.

I continue to write freelance for Journal and other clients, while also delving into new interests. My latest craze is homemade natural cleaning and bath products, about which I can go on ad infinitum! I make and sell a whole line of household cleaners, and I love to share my recipes and tips so that others can make their own too.

I’m a mom of seven – yep, count ‘em! – and nana of four (so far…). While I don’t claim to be a parenting expert (does anyone who actually has kids?), I have learned a couple of things along the way. Look for my take on parenting topics including the benefits of feeding your baby on a schedule, creative gift ideas for milestone birthdays, helping your high-schooler navigate college and financial aid applications, staring down the barrel of an empty nest, and more.

Finally, I just have to say that my husband is a rock star. Seriously. I love him. My man, John Cowan, tours with The Doobie Brothers and is a renowned singer in his own right. We live in the Nashville area, where John hosts a monthly radio show on 650 am WSM – Home of the Grand Ole Opry. He interviews some of country and rock-n-roll’s most iconic artists, such as Leon Russell, Kris Kristofferson, Jim Messina, Rodney Crowell, Wendy Waldman, etc., and as his woman, I’ve got the inside track on some amazing stories.
