I’m a yet-to-be published Christian Suspense writer. Here are the books my agent is currently shopping around:
Mine owner, Elery Hearst, is about to lose her family’s gold mine. In a last ditch effort to save it, she digs a new tunnel, hoping to intersect the original gold vein, but something goes wrong. The tunnel collapses, killing one of her men.
Initial reports blame the collapse on faulty equipment—a machine Elery should have replaced. Guilt consumes her, but she doesn’t have time to process it.
Her brother, Garrick, disappears on a search for the legendary Lost Dutchman mine. And the woman who went with him won’t say what happened. Elery contacts the sheriff who pairs her up with the one person she’d rather avoid—rescue tracker, Lucan Milner, the twin brother of the miner who died in the collapse.
Lucan soon realizes he holds secrets that can help find Garrick and the Lost Dutchman mine—journal pages written by the Dutchman himself. But sharing them with Elery not only rips open the scab on his grief-stricken heart, it also puts them in the path of a killer. In these deserted mountains, they aren’t the only ones desperately searching for the lost mine.
Paleontology Professor Travis Perego has spent his whole life studying dinosaurs and his entire career teaching evolution. But when his sister’s death leads him to commit his life to God, his world view is transformed. Now, he struggles with the conflict between evolutionary theory and the Bible. And if he doesn’t figure it out soon, the dean of the department will fire him.
When a graduate student tells him about a biology professor who is trying to prove evolution true, at first, Travis is curious. But he quickly becomes desperate to know if the biologist succeeded. Could this man have found a way to retrace the path of evolution in bird DNA—in essence, reverse engineering a dinosaur?
Before Travis can find out, the professor disappears, along with a mysterious creature from his lab. Travis follows them into the jungles of Costa Rica, where he risks everything to discover the truth.
Volcanologist Lenaia Talavera is called back to Mt. Rainier and the small town of Mayim to investigate problems with the monitoring equipment. She quickly discovers the equipment—an early warning system for rising magma—has been sabotaged. But who would want to risk an eruption?
Then, two women from the area disappear. Are the sabotage and the missing women related? When, Lenaia’s ex-boyfriend is arrested for a similar act of sabotage, her search for the truth intensifies. He proclaims his innocence, but should she believe him? As she digs deeper, the evidence leads her up the mountain where she uncovers a sinister plan. Can she stop a killer before he buries her and the little town of Mayim in a cascade of evil?
