Howdy Ya'll.
I wanted to take this time to introduce myself to you. I'm Patricia PacJac Carroll and happy to be here.

The PacJac are my initials and my husbands. When I went to publish my books, I found out there were other Patricia Carrolls out there, so, I added our initials.

To the left you'll see our horse, Big John Deere. My son got him when a friend said he had a horse that needed some grass, and we had grass needing a horse.
So we named him John Deere because
he came to mow.

I have always loved stories of the West and grew up watching westerns. AND I've always loved horses.

I write sweet clean historical romances set in the West. 
They all have a little fun, faith and always a Happily-ever-after. 

The older I get, the more I see how Life is hard. It has joys and triumphs but also trials and troubles. One thing I can do is to write stories that encourage, give hope, and entertain.

 I started watching the TV show Gunsmoke at night, and believe me, they are not sweet Hallmark movies. lol  Many of the stories are harsh, probably realistic to the hard life on the plains in the 1800s. But man, if you are not one of the stars,  you are likely to end up dead.  Of course that brings up the Cartwrights on Bonanza. You had better not fall in love with a Cartwright boy.

So I want you to know that my stories will have some trials but my characters will persevere. Romance will bloom on the prairie. And readers will have a good time and leave the pages of my stories happy. 

I look forward to finding interesting true stories of the West to share with you on this blog on the 6th of the month.

I do have a free book July 5-9, 2019  The Judge's Bride.  

Love Happens... Even when you have 10 kids.
Rachel held the letter in her hand as she watched the banker come up the lane. He was taking the farm. Wasn't it enough she'd been widowed 2 years ago. Worse, good meaning townspeople wanted her to disperse her ten children to families who needed them. She had to keep her family together. The letter from the judge in Montana. Her only hope of keeping her family together was to go west to Montana as a mail order bride.
Judge Solomon Taggart groaned at having to referee a dispute between the two feuding families. That even their children were at each other made him doubt the wisdom of sending that letter to the widow in Minnesota. She had children. She didn't say how many, and he hadn't asked. He grabbed his rifle and swung up in the saddle, praying there'd be no bloodshed. And then he prayed he'd been wise to send that letter.


  1. Patricia, I hope you have a great time in my old spot. My copy of THE JUDGE'S BRIDE is on its way!

  2. I love your stories. So happy you could join us. Best wishes, Patricia.

  3. Hi, I enjoyed reading this post! Your book sounds like a real good read. I will be adding it to my TBR list. Thank you. God Bless you.

  4. Howdy back atcha! You are totally new to me and I look forward to reading your stories. I will admit I thought PacJac was a nickname like a slur of Patty Jack or something. Often childhood names follow us all through our lives. PacJac has that cute ring to it.

  5. Hi Patricia and welcome! Sorry I didn't get here sooner.
