Award-winning author Loretta Eidson lives by the motto ‘never a dull moment,’ especially with her four children, thirteen grandchildren, and four great-grands. Her love of reading began during the required library time in middle school, where she devoured Phyllis Whitney’s mystery novels before she moved on to suspense author Frank Peretti. She left her eighteen-year administrative assistant position at her church to pursue the dream of writing inspirational romantic suspense. She has multiple short stories in anthologies, but her heart is writing romantic suspense. She believes in the power of prayer and loves putting her hero and heroine in realistic predicaments where they must trust God to pull them through.
She is the author of three novels published by Love Inspired Suspense. Pursued in the Wilderness, Blue Ridge Mountain Escape, and The Marine’s Deadly Reunion.
Loretta’s literary agent is Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency.
