About Me:

Just to share a little information about me, I was born in Marianna, AR. I am a proud graduate of Holly Grove High School, and I currently working toward a degree in Business Management from Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas and continuing on to a four year college to get a degree in Business Administration. I got married In April 2004 to Terry, and we have one small son born in July 2007 and I have a grown son from a previous marriage who is twenty-three. I do have a full time job. I work as an office manager for a branch of the USDA. I don't consider writing love stories as work. That is my fun time, my stress-reliever time, so when I get in from work and get my son taken care of, I relax by writing love stories. I began my writing career in the High School, when I would hand-write my stories for my classmates to read. I'm proud to say some of those same classmates are Carrie J. Keaton readers today! My professional writing career began in 2006 when I self-published my first book with Authorhouse. My first book, Two Loves, One Heart explores domestic violence as well as romance. Anyone who has ever felt the heartbreak and trials that love can bring, especially those who have experienced abusive or controlling relationships, will relate to my main character Lynnette’s journey to find true love within herself. I want to give readers hope that they can bring their lives around from the brink of devastation and despair if they have the desire to help themselves. I want to get it out there that they are worthy of being helped. This help can come from family and friends or professionally if the need be. I am speaking from experience and I am a SURVIVOR. My strong faith in God and my family helped me to find my way back from that dark and lonely place. I am thankful and truly blessed. That horrible experience has taught me that, “LOVE SHOULDN’T HURT”. Since then I have working on a second and third novel which I would like to call my “Heart Series.” My second novel will hopefully be complete by the end of this year or the first of 2009. So stay tuned!!!!

  • Hi Carrie,

    Welcome you this wonderful site. I hope you enjoy your networking expericene.

    Please check out this month issue of The
    Adventist Times www.theadventisttimes.com/.

    October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month www.nationalbreastcancer.org/default.aspx

    Do use the month of September to find a way to support the Breast Cancer Movement, even if it's just to increase your knowledge.

    View the Breast Cancer articles and video segments. Encourage your loved ones to schedule their mammograms for October, and remember to do Self -Examinations. Early detection is key!

    Breast Cancer is not just a woman's disease; men should examine their breasts as well.

    I've received TONS of requests to re-play the interview with David and Tamela Mann. She's so pretty! Well here it is...ENJOY!
