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, she 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, she

“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

“Praying my story gives God glory!”

“Praying my story gives God glory!”

“God wants us all to strive to grow more like Jesus, to become holy as he is holy, but God has a specific purpose for each person. How could it not be so? Everyone in a village cannot be a baker, because who would then make the candles or shoe the horses or grow the food? God says we are like a body. . . . Just as the villagers are part of a village and have different tasks, we all have tasks to do for the Lord God.”
Melanie Dickerson, The Captive Maiden

“There is no surer foundation for a beautiful friendship than a mutual taste in literature.”
P.G. Wodehouse

“One thing is clear: The Founding Fathers never intended a nation where citizens would pay nearly half of everything they earn to the government.”
