Sufficient Ransom (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: "The role of religion in tragic circumstances is given a well-crafted twist in this intriguing thriller." ForeWord Clarion Reviews Ever wonder what it feels like to have it all—family, career, health, money—and not be happy? A compulsive perfectionist, Ann Olson takes her life for granted until her six-year old son, Travis, disappears from the backyard one evening. Ann is convinced the CPS agent who had unjustly accused her of child abuse took Travis when efforts to remove him to foster care failed. Against all advice, Ann’s search for her son takes her to the dangerous streets of Tijuana, into the world of Christian evangelism, and to a drug tunnel on the border. Does Ann, an atheist, embrace Christianity despite her husband warning that her pastor friend is more interested in converting her than in finding Travis? Does she make it out of the tunnel alive, or is her rashness her downfall? And is Travis’s disappearance related to that of other missing children in San Diego? Emotionally charged and suspenseful— a story of a mother’s love, courage in the face of evil, and her unexpected journey of self-discovery along the way. Available for purchase soon.

Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”

Ayn Rand
“If creative fiction writing is a process of translating an abstraction into the concrete, there are three possible grades of such writing: translating an old (known) abstraction (theme or thesis) through the medium of old fiction means (that is, characters, events or situations used before for that same purpose, that same translation) -- this is most of the popular trash; translating an old abstraction through new, original fiction means -- this is most of the good literature; creating a new, original abstraction and translating it through new, original means. This, as far as I know, is only me -- my kind of fiction writing.”
Ayn Rand
