Molly Noble Bull

Molly Noble Bull

Molly Noble Bull was born in Kingsville, Texas and spent part of her growing up years on a sixty thousand acre cattle ranch where her grandfather and later her father worked as real cowboys. If you want to know about South Texas, ranches, and cowboys, ask Molly.

The photo of the cowboy on the horse is Molly's grandfather, Seth Woods. Seth ran a ranch in Kenedy County, Texas for 40 years, and he was interviewed by the late J. Frank Dobie, giving Dobie technical info for his western non-fiction books.

Molly has a good long-term memory, and she remembers her grandfather. Like Seth, Molly has also provided technical information to other authors on ranching in South Texas.

She and her husband, Charlie Bull, have three grown sons and four grandchildren, and they lived for many years in the Texas Hill Country west of San Antonio. Kingsville is forty-five miles south of Corpus Christi, Texas. Today, Molly and Charlie live there again now.

She writes for the Christian market only and has published with Zondervan and Harlequin’s Steeple Hill. Two of Molly’s Zondervan novels were later reprinted and came out from Guideposts, the Book Division.

Molly is descended from French Huguenots, and her newest novel, Sanctuary, is the first of three long historical novels in the Faith of Our Fathers series about the Huguenots. Tsaba House published Sanctuary on September 15, 2007 in trade paperback. And she is contracted to write two more novels and a non-fiction book for Tsaba House.

Sanctuary by Molly Noble Bull won the 2008 Gayle Wilson Award and tied for first place in the 2008 Winter Rose contest. Both contests were open to published inspirational authors only.
