CALLUM’S COMPASS

Welcome, Sara. What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
I hope readers will realize that no matter what they have done in their past, God loves them and wants a relationship with them. We can never be so wrong that God will stop loving us.

How do people react when they find out you write? 
At first, they are a little slow to answer. Then usually they think it’s really cool and say something like, “I’ve never met an author before.” It has a tendency to give a gal a bit of a big head!

Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad? 
If I am at my computer, I use it. If I only have paper I will jot ideas down by hand. Sometimes I use the notepad feature on my cell phone too. I find that if I have an idea or think of the right wording for something, I’d better write it down somehow right then and there or I will forget it.

Lightning Round:
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? Mountains

Y’all or You Guys? You guys

Biscuits or Dinner Roll? Depends. Cracker Barrel, definitely biscuit with butter and honey. Austin’s definitely yeast roll with honey butter.

Spring, summer, winter, or fall? Fall! It is by far my favorite season

Laptop or Desktop? Both. Laptop when I’m on the go. Desktop when I’m at home.

Mug or teacup? Mug

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.

  2. I love that CF world has inspirational/spiritual themes and that I can see faith played out in these fictional worlds. I’m starting to gather some CF YA novels for my teenagers....
