Michele McCarthy is a Fort Worth native. Being wife, mom, and Gigi to six adorable grandchildren is her favorite blessing. She loves to travel, read, scrapbook, and laugh—in no particular order. Her Jesus adventure continues with each book and speaking event.

Why I Started Writing:

My writing journey began later in life. I was attending a three-week ministry school when one of the leaders asked me if I wrote. “Um, well, I journal sometimes,” I answered. She then suggested I tell my story (which she didn’t know)—that it would help others. Somehow, I knew those words were God-inspired. So I wrote my story. I asked God what to do next. Long story short, I met Linda Evans, attended AWSA as a protégé, and the rest is history. I am on the great adventure with the Lord as He guides me through this process.
