Favorite Author- Suspense

Everyone has a favorite author, even if you don't realize it.

It's that author you reach for when you just want to read something that is _________.

Exciting.

Mysterious.

Educational.

Stretching.

Humorous.

You fill in the blank.

Being the bibliophile that I am, I have several favorite authors for different genres. For fiction, specifically Suspense/Christian Fiction that would, hands down, be Terri Blackstock.

I became hooked on her writing when I read the Restoration Series, books set in modern day America where a freak solar flare (if I remember right,) wipes out all things that run on electricity. She shows the resourcefulness that our people are made of (no refrigerator, or AC! no access to ATM's and no running cars!) and uncovers the darkness that would emerge in a society that becomes lawless overnight.

God must have known I would be in need of more reading material, because one of my friends here has almost every other book she has written. I plowed through 3 more of her series this Spring and just read Intervention, a book about a drug intervention gone horribly wrong, and Predator, a book about how social media (fictitiously) led to the stalking of young women.

If you are ever looking for a thrilling (clean) read, look up Terri Blackstock's work!

What is your favorite Suspense or Christian Fiction author?

Brittney - You don't know me but I have been following this adventure that God has taken you and your sweet family on, and it has been fun to cheer you on from the sidelines! Blessings on you and your family! I enjoyed reading Dee Henderson's books, especially her OMalley series. She is strong on sharing the gospel within her chatacter relationships, and her stories are suspenseful and fun!
