CALLUM'S COMPASS
by Sara L. Foust

Sara L. Foust

She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee and is a member of ACFW and Tennessee Mountain Writers. Callum's Compass won second place in Deep River Books' 2017 Writer's Contest.  Sara also has a story, “Leap of Faith,” in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Step Outside Your Comfort Zone.

Welcome, Sara. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why? 
I would love to have dinner with J. K. Rowling and, first, ogle with my mouth wide open, and then pick her brain. I love Harry Potter, but I also love that she is a mom who is a super successful author!


Sara's Writing Place
Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
My favorite place to write at home is on the front porch on a special, extra-comfy bench I made so the kids and I would have a place to be creative. 

What can your readers expect from you next? 
The second book in the Love, Hope, and Faith Series, Camp Hope, will hopefully be coming out Summer 2018! It is also set in East Tennessee and tells the story of a foster mom/camp director whose foster daughter is kidnapped. She sets out on horseback into the mountains surrounding her farm to bring Mattie home.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful? 
Tell your friends, please! Books sell by word of mouth. And, I would be humbled if you read Callum’s Compass and feel led to leave a review on Amazon (those reviews really do help!)

Please tell us a little about your novel, Callum’s Compass
KAT WILLIAMS’S brother died in a gruesome accident in the mountains of East Tennessee. She blames herself.

RYAN JENKINS’S fiancée was murdered. He couldn’t protect her.


With the death of her brother, Kat believes she is unworthy of love from anyone—even God. When a good friend elicits a promise that she will stop living in the past and then leaves her clues to a real-life treasure hunt, Kat embarks on an adventure chock-full of danger. To find the treasure, Kat will have to survive wild animals—and even wilder men. Can she rely on Ryan, the handsome wildlife officer assigned to protect her . . . without falling in love?

Ryan swore off love when his fiancée was murdered, but feelings long-buried rise to the surface around Kat. He volunteers to help with her treasure hunt, vowing to keep her safe. Together they venture deep into caves and tunnels . . . and even deeper into the depths of their unplumbed hearts.
