Karen Hulene Bartell


Dr. Karen Hulene Bartell, author of Holy Water: Rule of Capture, Lone Star Christmas: Holy Night, Angels from Ashes, Christmas in Catalonia, Sacred Gift, Belize Navidad, Sacred Choices, and others, is a best-selling author, motivational keynote speaker, IT technical editor, wife, and all-around pilgrim of life. She writes multicultural, offbeat love stories steeped in the supernatural that lift the spirit.

Dr. Bartell lives in the Texas Hill Country with her husband Peter and her 'mews'—four rescued cats.

The desert wind sings eerie music . . .


Is it whispering secrets in Angela Brannon's inner ear? She listens for the messages.
      Inexplicable clues take her across time, across Texas. Her quest begins as a dream—or is it a vision? She is lured to the mammoth fossils buried beneath prehistoric mud slides, brilliantly painted churches concealed under whitewash, ageless Native American pictographs obscured by graffiti, and the elusive ghost lights of Marfa.
      Searching her heart, her soul, to discover what is calling her, Angela must discern her calling. And then there's the call of love. Will she walk down the aisle with her fiancé Kio, who is struggling along his own inner path, or should she risk their future to explore her attraction to Logan, the empathic art law student?

       Are the winds of change calling her in the right direction?
