Carla Capshaw

A Florida native, I'm a preacher's kid who grew up in church.  My first memory is of giving my heart to Christ at the age of four.   When I was ten, I watched a biography about Marco Polo for my fifth grade history class and decided then I wanted to accomplish two things in life: travel and write books. 

Following the Lord’s leading, I earned a Bachelors degree in International Studies from the University of South Florida, and a Master of Theology from International Theological Seminary.  Over the years, I’ve been blessed to visit forty-eight states and twenty-five countries, including a year spent teaching English in the People’s Republic of China. 

Building on those experiences, I began writing seven years ago.  I love passionate stories with compelling, nearly impossible conflicts and have found Inspirational Historical Romance is the perfect vehicle to combine lush settings, vivid characters, and a Christian worldview.  

A 2004 and 2007 Golden Heart winner, I’ve been privileged to win numerous writing contests sponsored by Romance Writers of America chapters around the U.S. and Canada.  On November 15, 2007, I got “the call” and my dream of becoming a published author finally came true.  My debut novel, The Heart Beckons, is set in Ancient Rome and will be published by Steeple Hill Love Inspired Historicals in the spring of 2009.  To read an excerpt, go here:

Currently working on a sequel to The Heart Beckons, I still live in Florida, but I’m always planning my next trip...and plotting my next story.

Happy reading,
