About the Author
Karie Hendon is a reading addict first and foremost. While she always loved to write, her apprehension over sharing her imagination kept her from publishing. She had work published in her high school newspaper and felt proud. She always wanted to write a book and be a best selling author, but thought that was an impossible goal to reach. One day she talked to an already published author who once again gave her the inspiration to write. So therefore Keeper of my Heart was born. This is her debut book with many more to come. She is a newlywed to Jeffrey Hutchinson, who supports her completely. They reside in Memphis, TN. She loves all things paranormal, even though this book is somewhat historical and not paranormal at all. You can follow her at facebook.com/kariehendon and on her blog kariehendonauthor.blogspot.com.

"Josian, may I kiss you?"
