8. Karen Kingsbury

Karen Kingsbury is America’s favorite inspirational storyteller, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. Her last dozen titles have topped bestseller lists and many of her novels are under development as major motion pictures. Her Baxter Family books are being developed into a TV series slated to debut fall 2019. Karen is also an adjunct professor of writing at Liberty University. She and her husband, Donald, live in Tennessee. Her next book is Two Weeks (Howard Books).

“I consider my readers to be friends–not fans. I care for them and pray for them, and when I meet readers at a signing event I am moved to think that God put a story on my heart, but He had their hearts in mind. Only He could do that. I would love for the readers to pray for me, that I’ll stay focused on the stories God has given me to write. And that I’ll continue to find the balance that allows me to be a wife and mother and grammy to the family who loves me–all while still writing!”
