Welcome to my writing office.

Sweet romance from a witty transplanted

Texan who’s a mountain girl at heart.

Writing funny stories with a bit of snark, celebrating
life & family, always looking for a good brownie.

I am an editor and award-winning author of sweet contemporary romance and inspirational romance. I am also a writing teacher/coach, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma survivor, musician, and speaker.

I began to pursue a career in writing and editing in 2004. My first inspirational romance was published in 2008. I continue to be a student of the craft, and have gained experience through my years of publishing with a small press and my independent projects. I am a member of several writing organizations.

In 2014, I expanded my writing career to include editing services. After mentoring new writers and organizing several critique groups, I realized how much I enjoy encouraging and assisting writers on their journey to publication.

I currently live near Houston with my husband. We have three children, three grandchildren, and an extremely helpful Maine Coon Muse Cat.

This is How Much He Loves Me

Reflections for Hope and Healing
Availible on Amazon

The principle is simple. The world is hurting. Believers are losing hope. Many struggle to hear from God. Award-winning author Carla Rossi seeks to remind us of one basic truth: God still loves us. In a blunt and sometimes raw storytelling style, Carla has compiled examples of how God has worked miraculously in believers’ lives to show just how deep and all-encompassing his love for us is. With deeply honest and emotional essays, experiences, scripture, and reflection, we find the rekindled truth. God is aware. He does love us and wants the best for us. Despite the circumstances, the pain, or the regret, his love is everlasting, and his work in our lives is about our healing and wellbeing—through the power of his unfailing love.

We are perpetually cherished, and This Is How Much He Loves Me reminds us of that truth.
