Welcome to my Webpage!
My name is Carrie J. Keaton and I'm a contemporary romance author.
My first novel is contemporary romance with a domestic abuse theme.
My new novel, "Two Loves, One Heart", depicts a woman's search for true love. In this novel, I try to bring these emotions to life in the story of a young, ambitious woman who must choose between her first love turned abusive and an old friendship that develops into a passionate 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 Lynnette’s journey to find true love within herself. It also gives readers hope that they can bring their lives around from the brink of devastation and despair if they have the desire to help themselves.
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 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" been doing very well. Since then I have been working on a second which is titled, "Always in my Heart", which I hope to have complete by the end of this year 2008 or the first part of 2009. There will be a third novel which I may decide on naming this trio of novels my “Heart Series.” So stay tuned!!
