Author Interview | Susan J. Reinhardt

 Who is one of your favorite authors and why?

...Thanks for having me on your blog today, Emilie!

...It's hard to narrow it down, but Christy Award winning author, Cathy Gohlke, is one of my favorites. She's not afraid to tackle difficult subjects or give a realistic view of life in historical times. Yet she wraps it in a story with an element of romance to help the reader digest hard truths.


...Her writing skills and impeccable research make it obvious why she's won this prestigious award.


Tell us a little bit about your book.

...The Scent of Fear is the second book in a trilogy. While it's a stand-alone novel, readers have said The Moses Conspiracy gave them a good foundation for this story.


--> Here's the backcover copy for The Scent of Fear:
The Zimmermans enjoy the tenuous peace in the wake of their hair-raising year battling the New Patriots. Unexpected visitors once again throw them into turmoil.

Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the plan to break up a hate group ravaging the Christian community. Now, his enemies are out to eliminate him. Should he make a run for it or stick by his tried-and-true negotiating skills?

Monty Addison, a topnotch operative, carried out his assignment in Bird-in-Hand. A plot to destroy his boss sends him on a mission. Without agency sanction, it may cost him everything - his career, his family, and maybe his life.

Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can't get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?

What is one take away from your book that you hope readers identify with?

...I've read numerous account of seemingly hopeless situations that God turned into great victories. The Scent of Fear has a similar premise. The characters face insurmountable odds with courage. They stay the course no matter what difficulties come across their paths.

Thank you so much for being a guest on the blog again, Susan. I haven't read anything by Cathy Gohlke yet but, upon your recommendation, I'll definitely need to check out her writing! The Scent of Fear also sounds fantastic! I love your 'take away' for your books - I think one of the most amazing things Christian literature offers is a snapshot - a possibility even - of some of the wonderful things God can do (even if they just come from our writers minds).  I look forward to seeing more from you Susan!
