Sara Holt dreamed of walking through the ancient ruins of Rome. As she made plans to visit each site on her long itinerary with a tour group, she becomes enchanted by Ari Hershey, a business man from Jerusalem, who invites himself along.
During one of her site tours, Sara stumbles upon an ancient leather bound journal. Tucking the book quickly into her bag, thinking only to look at it and return it to the authorities later, she has no idea she’s being watched.
Later that evening she receives a strange phone call from her stalker. He knows who she is, where she is and what she has done. Sara has no choice but to trust Ari with this threatening call. Could he have been the caller? If not Ari, then who could it be? She knew no one in Rome.
Ari rushed to Sara’s room and she told him all about the journal. Ari is able to begin the translation of the book. He and Sara become engrossed in the compelling drama of Rhoda, the servant girl from the Book of The Acts of the Apostles, during the time of Peter and Paul.
Targeted Age Group:: 15-65+How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I prefer writing Christian Fiction…..maybe it’s not so different in genre, but I believe we all have stories to tell. We are created in the image of God and He has the greatest imagination of all…..I believe that my imagination reflects the infinite creativity of my creator…..although I don’t write everything I can imagine, or I’m sure I would be considered quite insane!
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Just never give up. I am not a well-known author and possibly may never be, but I write for enjoyment and hope my books can bring hours of pleasure and enjoyment to others. I have read a ‘gazillion’ books in my lifetime and have enjoyed reading as much as writing. I would suggest that anyone who wants to write should try to start young and keep on with it….my motto; “Just Do it!”
I am a longtime writer who has only published short stories and for a small newspaper, poetry, and many stories that sit in the deep recesses of my junk boxes. Until recently publishing e-books, I have not published hard copies as of yet. I am a registered Nurse, Foreign Missionary, world traveler (20 countries and more cities within those countries than I can count). I have a daughter, son, and three grandsons. My husband, Allan, and I live in Michigan since returning from Poland in 2009.
Writing is my favorite past-time…..along with jogging and doing research on any subject that strikes my fancy, but mostly medical and writing.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always loved writing and research. I am a Registered Nurse and Foreign Missionary. Since I was a very young girl, I have imagined every event to be a book! I am continually writing book titles and stories, poetry, and articles, in my mind…..these scenarios just won’t leave me alone!!!
