Congratulations to my dear blogging friend, Susan J. Reinhardt, whose debut book, The Moses Conspiracy is now available. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Susan's journey to publication began as a non-fiction writer. She's been published in The RevWriter Resource, Devotions Magazine, A Secret Place, Vista, Live, and numerous other compilations and periodicals. Her appreciation for using fiction techniques inspired her to use fiction as a vehicle for truth. A widow, stepmom, and active church member, Susan enjoys reading, couponing, gardening, and searching for small treasures in antique shops.
The Moses Conspiracy ~ A trip to post-terrorized Washington, D.C. in 2025 and a buggy accident in Bird-in-Hand, PA set in motion events that expose a diabolical plan to destroy the Christian community. Ellie and John Zimmerman find themselves embroiled in a life-threatening investigation, fighting a shadowy enemy.
Convinced it's now safe to visit D.C., Ellie and her firstborn, 8-year-old Peter, travel to the nation's capital. Both mother and child make an effort to enjoy the sights, but they're unprepared for the challenges they face. Her nightmares come true when she and Peter are separated.
Back home, John witnesses a neighbor's buggy accident. The suspicious circumstances and law enforcement's refusal to take them seriously prompt him to take on the role of detective. He and a tenacious reporter band together and vow to find out what's happening in Bird-in-Hand.
Extended family squabbles erupt when John's sister, Annaliese, faces off with Ellie for blowing her D.C. experiences out of proportion. She'd rather ignore the warnings than deal with the growing danger.
John and Ellie can't decide whether her trip and his involvement with the accident were such a good idea. People are getting hurt, and their own family receives ominous warnings. Turning back the clock is not an option, but going forward could initiate more violence.
The small community is shattered when the unthinkable occurs. Will family, friends, and neighbors band together or allow fear to prevent them from taking action? Caught between strained family relationships and a faceless enemy, the couple rely on God for wisdom and protection. Little do they know that He's working on their behalf each step of the way. The scabs of a past tragedy get ripped open, and the truth of their second child's death is revealed. While they may expose the culprits, will they survive the heartache it brings?
I'm so thrilled to share Susan's debut book with my Ink Dots friends. Here's something else you might like to discover about Susan J Reinhardt.
If I could go anywhere in the world tomorrow, it would be... A grand tour of the USA. I'd love to visit all the historical sites, as well as places like Branson, Missouri and Hawaii. :)
One thing I enjoyed today is... Only one? I've been working on my blog tour and interacting with my blogging friends. Unlike some authors, I'm not an introvert, although I do need some solitary time.
A secret pleasure of mine is... Sleeping as late as I want - which doesn't happen very often. Like other writers/authors, time management can be a challenge.
A moment that changed my life is... The biggest change came when I asked Jesus to be my Savior and Lord. Other than that, I'd say my marriage to my late husband. Besides being an all-around terrific guy, he encouraged me to write for publication.
When I was a child I wanted to... Be a nurse and a writer. The nurse dream faded, but the writer one gradually blossomed. It took awhile, but I'm glad I stuck with it.
I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but... I'm like a bulldog with a bone when I'm on a project. These are the times when I work almost without stopping (even when I'm sick). I'm juggling three major things right now: the book launch, the blog tour (with help from Diane Estrella), and a sign language special.
Such an exciting time for Susan. Join her over at her website for more celebrations... and get your hands on The Moses Conspiracy. Available as an e-book, it's only a few clicks away!
