Carla Frechette (on the right above) has been solving crossword puzzles since she was a teenager, when she became entranced by the New York Times Sunday puzzle. She soon came to know and love obscure terms such as “ANOA” and “NIDUS.” In 2011, she turned her hand to creating tough crossword puzzles for those who are seeking a challenge. She founded World of Crosswords with her sister Marya Doery (on the left above).
Carla lives in Connecticut with her husband, Ray, and their Rhodesian Ridgeback, Nyla. When not working on crosswords, she enjoys hiking and running.
