Thanks for stopping by.

I'm an Inspirational Regency romance author who lives in the beautiful Southern

Highlands of New South Wales, Australia. I'm married to Joshua, and mother to

Caitlin, Jackson, Asher & Timothy.

I love reading (especially Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer), music, films, ice hockey,

gardens, art, travel, & food! 

My husband and I pastored a church for over ten years.

I'm enjoying the journey of writing, of creating worlds where flawed people can

grow in faith, hope, and love.


I am represented by Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency.

My first novel, 'The Elusive Miss Ellison' will be published by Kregel Publications in

February 2017. You can pre-order through, Barnes and Noble, CBD,

Read what historical authors are saying about 'The Elusive Miss Ellison':


            “From the moment I cracked the pages I was transported to another era with a heroine as compelling as Lizzie Bennet and a Darcy-esque hero.”~ Lisa Richardson, author of The Peacock Throne


            “The Elusive Miss Ellison will delight the hearts of Regency romance lovers with its poetic narrative, witty verbal swordplay, strict social constructs, and intriguing touch of mystery.” ~ Louise M. Gouge, award-winning author


             “Lovers of Jane Austen will be enchanted by Carolyn Miller’s debut novel—especially readers who want to know more about the hero’s journey to adoring their Regency heroine. This beautifully written book is definitely worth reading!” ~ Dawn Crandall, award-winning author of The Everstone Chronicles

             “Carolyn Miller gives the reader a sweetly satisfying tale and a charming Regency couple worthy of Georgette Heyer herself. I hope this is the first of many.”~ Julianna Deering, author of the Drew Farthering Mysteries


            “The Elusive Miss Ellison is a delightful romp. Light and enjoyable, but also rich with the theme of forgiveness. A lovely read.”   ~ Angela Breidenbach, Christian Authors Network president and best-selling historical romance author


            “Fans of historical romance will love Carolyn Miller’s debut novel. Nicholas’s journey from proud, self-centered man to caring and devoted suitor will capture the reader’s heart as it did Lavinia’s. With just the right touch of inspiration and interesting historical details, Carolyn transports you back to Regency England.Carrie Turansky, award-winning author of A Refuge at Highland Hall and Shine Like the Dawn

            “In The Elusive Miss Ellison, Carolyn Miller has created a heroine who will steal your heart and a hero who is as frustrating as he is charming. With unexpected twists and turns, the story stays true to the times. The scenes in the English countryside as well as in London will capture the imagination of those who love the Regency period and win over those who are experiencing the era for the first time.”~ Martha Rogers, author of best seller Christmas at Holly Hill and recently released Christmas at Stoney Creek


             “The Elusive Miss Ellison is a wonderful blend of romance, witty banter, and Regency-era charm sure to delight readers."~ Angela K Couch, author of Mail-Order Revenge and The Scarlet Coat

             "Carolyn Miller’s writing style is reminiscent of Jane Austen, with a modern sense of wit and spunk. Lavinia is a spirited heroine who will leave you smiling to the very last page, and despite the initial presump- tion of a disinterested, battle-scarred war hero, Nicholas quickly sneaks his way into your heart. This minister’s daughter and guilt-laden earl are supported by an ensemble cast who keep you turning the pages. You’ll be swept into a story of God’s amazing grace and the slow unfolding of a love that overcomes even the greatest opposition.”~Amber Stockton, author of more than twenty novels, including the best-selling Liberty’s Promise
