Carol Amoruso has been a published journalist for 15 years, covering events and culture of Africa, the Caribbean and the Latin world. Her dance background has given her a leg up, so to speak, in writing about music for various publications and web sites. She’s been a contributor to GLOBAL RHYTHM almost since its inception. Her first work of fiction, a short story, will be published in The Brown Sugar Traveler (Plume) in the winter of 2005-06. A native, and still resident New Yorker, Carol travels widely, but has roots in Jamaica and Mexico.
