- "No matter what, it would be a yes. You and the kids are basically my family too. I don’t know where I’d be if the four of you hadn’t kept me going. I want them to be safe, and I want to get them back to us, back to you. I’m in, Lee."

Carley is a main character first encountered in Chapter 6 of the A New Day series. Carley is a quick-thinking regional news reporter from Atlanta, Georgia. A skilled shooter, Carley serves as one of the main defenders of the group.
This list shows the victims Carley has killed:
- Many unnamed bandits.
- Numerous counts of zombies.
- Carley has long outlived her original video game counterpart, having survived the argument with Lilly and making it past the third act. The author had this to say on the matter:
- "Carley was always one of my favorite characters in the game. Saving her instead of Doug just felt more rewarding, ya know? Like, everything and everyone felt more developed. Plus, if you save Carley, then you can tell everyone your secret about being a killer. But I felt Carley wasn't used enough in the game. So, instead, I had Lilly shoot Soos, and worked the story around that. But whether or not I have shown to use Carley more or less, that's for the reader to decide."
- As of Chapter 36, Carley is the only member of the Pharmacy survivors to be confirmed alive.
