Carla Stewart

Author Bio:

In her life before writing, Carla Stewart enjoyed a career in nursing and juggling the adventures of her four rambunctious sons. She believes her experiences prepared her to write novels that answer some of life's tough questions and offer hope in our skid-marked world.

Carla launched her writing career in 2002 when she earned the coveted honor of being invited to attend Guidepost's Writers Workshop in Rye, New York. Since then, her articles have appeared in Guideposts, Angels on Earth, Saddle Baron, and Blood and Thunder: Musings on the Art of Medicine.
Most recently, Carla won two American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) Genesis contests: one in the Historical Fiction category in 2007 and in another for her Young Adult entry in 2008. Her debut novel, Chasing Lilacs, releases in June, 2010.

She enjoys a good cup of coffee, great books, and weekend getaways with her husband. They live in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and are somewhat partial to the little people in their lives—their six grandchildren.
