For the month of December, I’ve asked debut author Sara Foust to introduce herself to my blog readers. Each week on Thursday we’ll learn something new. Welcome, Sara.
Tell us about yourself. Why did you begin writing and why do you write in the genre you do?
I have been writing since I was a kid. In second grade, I won a trophy for my story, “My Amaginary Friend.” And I was hooked. I’ve dreamed of writing a novel ever since. I love books of all kinds and I have always believed it would be an honor to have my book on the shelf next to so many other amazing books. When I lost my medical transcription job in 2015, my husband and I prayed and felt led that this was the time for me to focus on writing one of those novels. After years of dreaming about it and longing for writing time, I made the commitment to become a “real writer.” Now, two years after that vow, my debut novel, Callum’s Compass, is here! I kind of naturally fell into the romantic suspense genre because I am a romantic at heart, and also because I love adventure and solving “who-dun-it” cases.
I have no doubt the Lord tapped you on the shoulder and said, “Write the stories I’ve put on your heart.” May He continue to bless your novels for His glory.
KAT WILLIAMS’S brother died in a gruesome accident in the mountains of East Tennessee. She blames herself.
RYAN JENKINS’S fiancée was murdered. He couldn’t protect her.
With the death of her brother, Kat believes she is unworthy of love from anyone—even God. When a good friend elicits a promise that she will stop living in the past and then leaves her clues to a real-life treasure hunt, Kat embarks on an adventure chock-full of danger. To find the treasure, Kat will have to survive wild animals—and even wilder men. Can she rely on Ryan, the handsome wildlife officer assigned to protect her . . . without falling in love?
Ryan swore off love when his fiancée was murdered, but feelings long-buried rise to the surface around Kat. He volunteers to help with her treasure hunt, vowing to keep her safe. Together they venture deep into caves and tunnels . . . and even deeper into the depths of their unplumbed hearts.
