I'm Carol Ann Erhardt, new to this blog, and very honored to be allowed to introduce myself. So here goes:
I am a wife to my soulmate, after surviving an abusive marriage.
I am a mother to my four children, and four step children.
I am a proud grandma.
I am a full time Executive Assistant.
I am a caregiver to fourteen feral cats.
I am owned by three cats named Charlotte, Wilbur, and Templeton.
I am a woman who loves God, ice cream, chocolate, people, animals, sunshine, snow, and good books.
I am a woman who is afraid of heights, spiders (eeek), and the dark.
I am a child who worries about her elderly mother, and misses her deceased father.
I am Carol Ann Erhardt, an inspirational romance novelist.
That's pretty much me in a nutshell. I began my career writing for Chicken Soup for the Soul and Cup of Comfort. My first two full-length published novels were romantic suspense, but not inspirational. After my second release, I just felt pulled to share my love of God in my writing. I did a lot of praying and the idea for Joshua's Hope began to emerge. Writing this book was a lot of fun and very rewardng. After the release of my first inspirational romantic suspense in August 2008, I knew I'd found my niche. Joshua's Hope has been nominated for an Eppie award (winners to be announced in March 2009) and for a CAPA award (winners to be announced on February 14, 2009). I feel God has richly blessed me.
I'll be popping back in here from time to time...so stayed tuned! Thanks for taking time to learn more about me.
