Born and raised in Vincennes, Indiana, Jamie Carie is a preacher’s daughter. Road trips with her dad—to and from Bible studies across Indiana—were filled with talks of things beyond earth’s bounds – the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch. The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad spent a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes.
Piles of poems, short stories, skits and song lyrics later, Jamie grew up and married. When her eldest son turned five she decided to try her hand at novels. Eight years and lots of rejection letters later, Snow Angel was published and won ForeWord Magazine’s Romance Book of the Year, a USA Book News “Best Books 2007” Awards winner, and 2008 RITA® Awards Best First Book finalist. In 2010 Wind Dancer was a finalist in the Indiana State Library Best Books of Indiana. It was the beginning of her dream career.
With eight books currently in circulation and her first three book series coming out in 2012 Jamie has made an impressive contribution to the inspirational, historical romance genre. Romantic Times exclaimed, “Carie is a welcome new voice in the inspirational fiction market.” And, “Carie writes with her heart on every page of her books.” Jamie has a passion for history and believes in the power of love stories and God’s great love for His creation.
