Carra Copelin


I write contemporary and historical romances but, unlike so many other authors, I didn't write from childhood or read long into the night beneath the covers with a flashlight. I found romance novels as an adult. After reading about a million, I discovered numerous people residing in my head, all looking for a way onto the printed page.

I'm a member of Romance Writers of America and President of Yellow Rose Romance Writers, plus I'm a regular contributor to Sweethearts of the West and Smart Girls Read Romance.

My husband and I live in North Central Texas, in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex where we enjoy our family and play with our grandchildren. In addition to writing and researching with my fabulous critique partners, I enjoy my Bridge group, crochet, and tracking down our relatives through genealogy.

Books By This Author

“This is my first book by Carra and I can't wait to read more of her historical romance! Loved how Laurel learned both home keeping and farm wife skills from the book by Aunt Jenny!”

“I thoroughly enjoyed Carra Copelin's Code of Honor. This is a tale of love lost and found a second time around. The characters are well drawn, the plot suspenseful, and the love scenes steamy. I especially enjoyed Ms. Copelin's sassy touches of humor. Can't wait for the next book in this series! ”

“While admitting a distinct bias toward historical British romance novels, I really enjoyed Code of Honor. The pace never lagged, the dialogue was sharp and believable, and the protagonists were written as real people. I flew through reading this book and look forward to more from the author, who is obviously a gifted storyteller. ”

“KATIE AND THE IRISH TEXAN by Carra Copelin is such a delightful book. The characters are likeable, believable, and true to the times (1870s), and the plot kept me engaged. As a native Dallasite, I enjoyed the author’s reference to familiar names and places (the Trinity River, Sanger Brothers, etc.) as well as the sometimes crazy North Texas weather. The author obviously knows her setting well, and I’m looking forward to reading more of her stories.”
