Carmen is the second child in long line of 8 kids born to Dennis and Mae Dilts. Born and raised in a small, small town- actually not even town, but just wide spot in the road in southeastern British Columbia, Carmen couldn't wait to head off to college at Ricks College (now BYU- Idaho). She later attended and graduated from Brigham Young University- Provo, Utah with a Bachelors Degree of Political Science. Despite her love of Political Science, Carmen has rarely lived in an area where pursuing this passion has been possible. As a result, she has become experienced in a wide variety of jobs, and volunteer opportunities.
She is happily married to the first love of her life- Shan and together they are attempting to raise (without messing them up too badly) four boys who are the other loves of her life!
Her first book "I'm a Mormon- Now What?" was published by Cedar Fort in December 2010 and is available on their website www.cedarfort.com.
She is always writing and currently has several "projects" in the works.
