BIOGRAPHY

I am . . . a blessed and highly favored bride-to-be of the King of Kings, Yeshua! Wife of fifty-plus years to my best friend Ron; Mama to four, and Grami to twenty-two grandsugars! I pray my story gives God glory---always free of cursing and on-scene intimacies. I love living in Texas and singing praise and worship! I hate roller coasters!

Readers meet four families that pull together for a new start in Texas. This Book One is their covered wagon journey west to settle in the Dallas/Fort Worth area before Dallas and Fort Worth existed in 1840. I love the relationships, the loyalty, their courage, and how they trusted God, leaning not to their own understanding.

The impossible becomes possible with God and this story proves it! I love Sassy and adore her son Charley. Levi, introduced in the Prelude VOW UNBROKEN, makes a perfect hero as a Texas Ranger in 1844. Who wouldn't love Levi's banter with sidekick, Wallace Rusk? The love story between Sassy and Levi gets so messed up, I didn't know how it could ever work out! But God . . .

I love this book because it took me to Israel where I long to go. The story of Abishag, David's last queen, and her life of obedience and adoration toward God inspired me to love, trust, and obey Him more. So moved of the Holy Spirit as He revealed the story, I oft wept at my computer and worshiped.

      • Because I was a professional editor for eleven years, I KNOW what women's problem is with writing good heroes! And it's hard to fix because THEY ARE NOT MEN and do not know what it's like to BE a strong man. I'm SO BLESSED not to have this problem because I write with my husband of 50+ years now. He went to Writers Workshop and learned the craft alongside me! He has the last word on anything masculine in our story, so I have fabulous heroes!

        The one thing women must do it give the men in their stories FEWER words to say. Ron used to critique those ladies by saying, "Go through your dialogue and cut your man's in half. Then go back a second time and cut it in half again!" He tells me, "Strong men don't explain themselves and they don't pass out information. Information is power, Caryl."

        Ron is my hero! The most Christ-like man I've ever known, he's a wonderful best friend, husband, and father to our children! He's a pretty good O'Pa, too, once the little ones get up to be a three-year-old. I am so blessed to have been together with him since we were sixteen years old, married since we were eighteen.

      • I believe it would be "Point of View" (POV), and also think it's the hardest of an author's tools to grasp. It's all about getting into the head of one character--usually the one with the most emotion at risk in the scene being written--and telling the story from THEIR perspective ONLY. This method allows the readers to get to know my characters in a deep relationship. It's why so many of my reviews say how much they loved the characters and could identify with them, wanted them to be in their family or at least neighbors!

        Most new writers want to write in omniscient POV which is being way up above the story, seeing all, hearing all, and knowing all. This method is TELLING the story, not SHOWING it, and it's BORING. The writer is keeping the reader at arm's length and not letting them get downright INTO the story to live vicariously through the characters.

        There are many other tools an author has today to write a good story like scene and sequel, active versus passive voice, motivation before reaction, character development, dialogue, and more. But most important to me is the POV--who's telling the story?

      • I've always loved English as a subject and enjoyed putting words together! Both my maternal grandfather and my mother wrote books, though neither of those was published, so I guess the desire came in the genes! I started writing a Biblical fiction in the mid -1980s with my husband. We had no computer, so wrote we hand-wrote the 380-page manuscript then paid to have it transcribed so we could submit it.

        After a series of rejections, we decided perhaps we should try to publish it ourselves and went to a printer who pointed us to the DFW Writers Workshop. A divine appointment to be certain! There, several mentors took us under their wings and taught us the craft of writing Creative Fiction. We were mentored from 1993 and got our first contract to publish in 1999--a non-fiction guide book titled ANTIQUING IN NORTH TEXAS.

        And so our journey began!
