About the Author

Loretta Eidson

Have you ever been to the theatre and sat on the edge of your seat as the intensity of suspense kept you biting your fingernails? How about Taken, Kidnapped, and A Quiet Place?

That’s what I hope you’ll experience in my novels: gripping stories, fast-paced, and full of twists, while my characters discover God’s unconditional love, the freedom of forgiveness, the value of trust, and the power of prayer.

Peace in the Midst of Chaos

When we look at the world nowadays, life seems out of control. People argue and demean the integrity of others, disregard the value of respect, and disown us if our opinions differ from theirs. With the continuous threat of COVID-19 and the controversies over political issues, protecting the values of home and family may get lost among the chaos. We get caught up in the uncertainties of truth in the news, slander on social media, and an overall disregard for authority. These traits may have been around for years, but maybe I’ve finally reached the age to take notice and… 

Shopped Until We Dropped

Despite the virus threats, our family gathered for a fabulous Thanksgiving meal together. Of course, we all chipped in and prepared a dish. As with every holiday gathering, we overate and enjoyed every bite. After clearing the table, all the ladies sat and sorted through the Black Friday sales ads. We cut coupons, make our lists, mapped out our course, and headed home. Five o’clock in the morning would arrive early, but, hey, we’d make the doorbuster sales. By four o’clock I was up, dressed in our matching Christmas T-shirts and matching Christmas face masks, and sipping on my liquid… 

Yes, You Can

In a world full of negativity, it is important to impart hope to others through intriguing stories that invoke positivity. Friendships are vital regardless of your profession, and writing doesn’t change the fact. Everyone needs supportive, kind, and encouraging friends. I recently read Angelia L White’s book Yes Sisters. The cover sums it up. Surrounding Yourself with Women Who Affirm, Encourage, and Challenge You. This goes for men, too, even though the book focuses on women. Angela says, “We need a friend who helps us become our best selves.” Take Yes Sisters a step further. As a writer, you have…
