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.

What’s in a Dream by Loretta Eidson

A few nights ago, I had a dream about a ship that resembled something one might see in a steampunk setting.

Everyone lined up at the exit waiting their turn to escape the dismal floating city. The Captain and his guards stood behind a table at the exit. Before anyone stepped…

Minutes to Die by Susan Sleeman

Another splendid novel by Susan Sleeman! So many intricate details into terrorist investigations, protocol, and other government agencies working together to solve a national threat indicate a lot of research went into pulling this novel off in a superb manner.
