The Reviews 

My publisher, HarperCollins Christian, released my new novel, A Cry From the Dust, August 12. We're excited about the response, and the reviews are great:

 “Parks’ fast-paced and suspenseful debut novel is an entertaining addition to the inspirational genre. Her writing is polished, and the research behind the novel brings credibility to the story.An excellent book that is sure to put Carrie Stuart Parks on readers’ radar.” – 4 stars, RT Book Reviews

 “Parks, in her debut novel, has clearly done her research and never disappoints when it comes to crisp dialogue, characterization, or surprising twists and turns. Contemporary Mormon fundamentalism, a clever alternative theory about the martyrdom of Mormon founder Joseph Smith, and a determined search for the truth are blended artfully in this fast-paced, exciting novel.”Publishers Weekly 



The advanced reader's copy of my next book arrived this week and all I can say is WHOOOOOHOOOOO!



Class Updates

Is South Lake Tahoe calling your name? We’ve had so many students from Nevada and California tell us this is the location they want that we’re down to a first come/first serve situation. Additionally we have hotel information you need. Get in touch with us ASAP for an update, Dude!


Still time to take Fort Lee, New Jersey. Carrie will throw an extra book in the suitcase for you. And you still don’t even need a really, you don’t.


Calgary, Alberta Canada is open for registration. Mark your calendars for August 31-September 4, 2015.  See the spectacular Canadian Rockies. Be sure your passport is current and start making plans now to give yourself extra time, eh?


If you want a class in the middle of the summer and in the Rockies without leaving the country, then check out Highlands Ranch Colorado, July 20-24! This one is filling fast.


Many of our students have told us there is nothing like taking a class on the ranch here in beautiful North Idaho!  We have a Certification class and a Fine Art Drawing and Painting class scheduled this summer.  Both classes are very close to filling so please let us know right away if you have an interest in attending.
