Newest Release! Historical Christian Romance Novel

Chief of Sinners, book ten, Texas Romance Family Saga 

Obedience can overcome ruinous choices, and with the repentance of wicked ways, God’s faithful forgiveness and mercies never fail.

Sometimes choices we make take us places we never intend to go, but God . . .

Intergalactically famous author? Though her childhood dream, Caryl’s not yet met any little green men. But loving God, singing His praises, and writing stories that give Him glory bring the lady great joy! And so many 5-Star reviews and comparisons to such classics as PRIDE AND PREJUDICE or GONE WITH THE WIND often bring tears to her eyes, so humbling. Forty-nine years of marriage to her beloved Ron produced four children and seventeen grandsugars. Ask Caryl how she is, and you’ll hear, “I’m blessed and highly favored!”
