BAYTOWN, TEXAS , UNITED STATES, June 2, 2016– Author Cara Skinner enlightens readers as she tells a story of devotion, courage, and heroism in her romantic, historical book, “General Houston’s Little Spy: A Texas Revolution Story.”
A story of dedication, faith, and commitment, “General Houston’s Little Spy” is an inspiring action-adventure of a young lady who only wants to marry her fiancé and move to Texas.
“My inspiration for writing General Houston’s Little Spy was to inspire an interest in Texas history in the next generation of young Americans and provide educators with a teaching resource that will make this history relevant to young people. The book itself only took about eight months to write because I was brought up learning Texas history from my father and grandmother from an early age. I did have to do considerable research on troop movements during the Runaway Scrape and rural life in Tennessee. I actually came up with the idea for the book when I was a teenager studying Texas history,” shares Skinner when asked about the inspiration behind her book.
“The book shares a powerful historical fiction story that shows how ordinary people can help win wars. It inspires to further a worthy cause and make a difference in the world,” states Andrea Weig, Acquisitions Editor for Tate Publishing.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available upon its release, through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
