Patricia PacJac Carroll~ I am a writer, Christian
first, and blessed beyond my imagination. I live in the Dallas-Ft Worth area of
Texas with my wonderful treasure of a husband, my spoiled dog, Jacs, and my
awesome son, Josh. Did I say I was blessed? The PacJac is from my initials and my
husbands. I wouldn't be able to write if it weren't for him. I love adventure
and the open road. The stories of the western era have always been a favorite
of mine. I enjoy writing, and my goal is to write stories readers will enjoy.

in front of a lady.”

like them. The air is fresher than any you’ve breathed. Some say it’s the smell
of freedom. I like to think of it that way.”

4.       “Oh, yes.” Amy set her mood to smile. A trick
she’d learned shortly after her father died. If she made herself smile, sooner
than later, she felt like everything would work out all right.

held out her hand. “I came out to Denver to meet Zeb, and I’m not his cousin.”

8.      No, he didn’t want to think about God whittling
him down. Taking his grand ideas and exchanging them for a smaller one. A life
