RAVEN’S MISSION STATEMENT: I firmly believe God’s way of doing business is the best method. When we join hands with each other it not only helps us learn and grow it creates bonds between fellow authors. As team players, we learn to share instead of competing, grasping and grabbing for recognition and financial gain.
GUEST: KALEDA CARTHRAN
I really enjoyed interviewing Kaleda. Through the interview questions and our online communications, I feel we are kindred spirits with the same goals. Kaleda’s work glorifies our Lord and she is determined to help and encourage others. Enjoy this interview.
Kaleda Carthran was born in the city of Wrightsville, Georgia in 1972. Having that small southern town upbringing could only keep her hidden from the rest of the world for so long. After spending her early days playing with cousins and friends, she began to mature and finally got out of there and joined the military. She left her daughter that she had at a young age in the care of her mother with hopes of creating a better Kaleda for her child’s sake. The tiny walls of Wrightsville were not big enough to hold her back from seeing a much faster paced life and meeting many great people along the way. She met her soon-to-be husband while stationed in Ft. Hood, Texas and they had a daughter together and then began raising a family together. It was in raising this family that many trials and tribulations came along and tested their marriage and well-being. Through it all her husband and her began going to church and putting all the bad things that plagued their marriage behind them. She has always strived to be better at everything she does and now she is striving to become an excellent writer. She writes about things that tug at her own heartstrings and things that make a difference in others around her. She currently resides in Wisconsin with her now larger family and keeps writing about topics that really hit home to many people.
