Carol A Shepherd (C A Shepherd) is a fiction and academic writer based inEdinburgh, Scotland.  She is the author of several academic works, as well as publishing her own fiction under the Easy Yoke imprint.

Her fiction works include the Parlour Trilogy, featuring Christian detective DI Mark ‘Pizza’ Parlour. Set in the fictional suburb of Deverton, these humorous pot-shots at middle class life are loosely based on the M3/M27 corridor where Carol lived previously.

Among her academic works are the monographs Bisexuality in the Western Christian Church (Palgrave Macmillan) and Bi the way: Pastoring bisexual Christians in Europe (EYP). She also has chapters in several edited academic volumes on themes relating to bisexual Christian identities.

Carol has also penned her autobiography, 119: My life as a bisexual Christian, under the name of Jaime Sommers. This book serves as a damning indictment of the inability of the Church to deal with the complex realities of people's lives.
