Born in California, Caryl McAdoo got to Texas in time to celebrate her first birthday. As a Dallas seventh grader, she remembers a homework essay on ‘What will you be doing in 2000?’ Looking into the future, Caryl saw herself as an inter-galactically famous author, streaking from planet to planet signing books. She laughs, “But I didn’t start writing again until the late ’80s, then was so blessed to find the DFW Writers’ Workshop in ’93.”


Her first book debuted ’99, then for the next nine years, she averaged a title a year from four presses: two non-fiction, four novels, and three mid-grade chapter books. In March 2014, her first historical Christian romance VOW UNBROKEN

debuted from Howard Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. In April,

I'm so glad that you enjoyed HEARTS STOLEN and hope you'll read the rest of the Texas Romance series! I so appreciate your kind words and compliments, especially the ones regarding spiritual ways. 'I pray my story gives God glory!' is the tagline I've adopted for all my books!

In response to answer your inquiry, as in life, all questions are not answered when we might wish...all tied in a neat package. Wallace's choices and more of his life are revealed in HOPE REBORN, book three and again in my recently completed book six JUST KIN. It debuts in January, 2016.

While each novel in the series is a stand alone, I love sagas. Currently, I have several more books written or planned that carries this family and their extended families all the way into 1950, up to the third and fourth generations.

But you aren't alone! :) Several readers haven't particularly liked that I ended without 'tying' up Wallace and Laura, evidenced by some of the reviews, but this wasn't their book...it's Levi and Rose's story. And while I love my hero's sidekick and the young, uneducated seamstress, neither are major players in the series though both are mentioned in almost every book and may have several other scenes in years to come.

I hope you'll enjoy all the stories, and if you ever have a question I don't eventually answer, let me know! :) Hugs and blessings! And many thanks to you again! I love visiting with readers!(less)

I usually just back up and let the Lord--through my characters--go in a more comfortable direction :) Blessings!(less)

“new day, it all came back to the fact that he did not have a relationship with God. He’d already be up, and she trembled with the thought of seeing him again. How crazy was that? As if she could just walk blissfully to an altar and say, ‘I do.’ He had come all that way. Said he would’ve followed her to the ends of the earth. Still, just as her mother before her, she couldn’t. Not with a non-believer. How true that the generations repeated. Her dear sister had paid a high price for disobedience. Mary Rachel had suffered for her bad choice...though God redeemed her in the end.”
Caryl McAdoo, At Liberty to Love

“Oh, Lord, give me the desires of my heart. Or either change them according to Your will. Show me the error of my ways.”
Caryl McAdoo, Hope Reborn
