“Sizzling romance with heart and humor.”

Carol is an award-winning author of contemporary, small town romances with serious sizzle and usually a generous dose of southern charm. She enjoys a second-chance-at-love story with her husband of over forty years.

A native Texan, Carol's love of travel, coupled with a history of living in her share of small towns and metropolitan areas, gives her a broad range of settings to choose from. She admits that as long as she has her hubby and dogs with her and a generous supply of sweetened tea, she can write almost anywhere, even in their RV.

Writing as Annie Rayburn, she produces alternate reality, soft sci-fi and lite paranormal erotic romances featuring Crainesians, a humaoid race of people living here

Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"

Stephanie Bond
“All we can do is make the best decisions we can with the best information we have at that time and place. And learn how to rebound, reinvent, and regroup. Remember—people who seem to move through life with confidence aren’t confident about the outcome of a decision; they’re confident that they can deal with the outcome, good or bad.”
Stephanie Bond

Neil Gaiman
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes...you're Doing Something.”
Neil Gaiman

J.K. Rowling
“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

A.A. Milne
“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
