Caryl McAdoo, praying her story gives God glory, loves writing for Christian genres--historical and contemporary romance, Biblical fiction, and mid-grade/young adults. After ten years being published and nine titles, in March 2014, Simon and Schuster debuted Caryl's VOW UNBROKEN, a historical Christian romance set in 1832 Texas.
In the fall of that year, the prolific author followed with two more titles independently, HEARTS STOLEN, book one of her Texas Romance Family Saga series (TxRFSs) set in 1839-1844, an Amazon #1 Best-seller, and A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS, volume one of her first Biblical fiction series, The Generations(TGenBFs)--also an Amazon #1 Best-seller.
In an exciting 2015--with God's help--she released eleven new releases! Three for her historical Texas Romance Family Saga (TxRFSs), three for The Generations Biblical fiction series (TGenBFs), three for the contemporary Red River Romances Romance series (RRRs), a non-fiction book on writing, and book one of a new mid-grade series Dyas of Dread Trilogy. This amazing accomplishment went as follows:

February 10, THE PREACHER'S FAITH, the first contemporary RRRs launched;

Then three additional titles to the Family Saga in 2017: book seven COVERING LOVE (1885-886), MIGHTY TO SAVE book eight (1914-1924), and CHIEF OF SINNERS (1926-1950).
2018 is sure to be another good year for Caryl with two new historical releases in January, SON OF PROMISE (1950), Companion Book Two to TxRFSs and SILENT HARMONY (1867), part of a multi-author Lockets and Lace series. At this time, three more titles are expected. Her stories are well received--4-5-Star average rankings across the board in all her genres.
Caryl's heart to serve is apparent as she helps other new authors realize their dreams. Besides teaching writing creative fiction, she also works to show them how to format their novels and the importance of good edits from fresh eyes. As she was mentored at the DFW Writers' Workshop fifteen years (1993-2008), she hopes to pay God's blessings forwarding mentoring others.
For every good in her life--including four children and seventeen grandsugars--she gives God the glory. Caryl lives a country-life with Ron, her high school sweetheart and husband of fifty years (1968-2018) in the woods a few miles south of Clarksville, Red River County seat, located in the far Northeast corner of Texas.
