And last week we met award winning author, Shannon Taylor Vannatter, who writes contemporary Christian cowboy romance, and has over a dozen published titles! A romance reader since her teens, she hopes to entertain Christian women and plant seeds in the non-believer’s heart as she demonstrates that love doesn’t conquer all—Jesus does.
