I am so excited to see this book release! I met Susan at a writers’ conference and fell in love with her manuscript. This is a gripping, page-turning book. Don’t miss it! Here’s an interview with the author, as well as an ordering link for the book.
1. What inspired you to write The Moses Conspiracy?
Thank you for having me here today, Kathi. My late husband and I visited Gettysburg prior to Christmas in 2004. While standing in the old town square, surrounded by history, I could “hear” the forefathers’ voices. However, they were like fading echoes.
After several failed attempts to write non-fiction pieces, I put it on the back burner and prayed for direction. In August 2005, we were talking about “the Gettysburg experience,” and he said, “That’s it! That’s your book! And you’ll write it in 4 months and call it Ghosts of the Past.”
I thought he was crazy, but caught the vision. The name changed to Echoes of the Past and later to The Moses Conspiracy. When I sat down at the computer, I had no clue what I was going to write. By Christmas 2005, I had 55,000 words.
2. What do you hope readers will take away from your book?
There are several messages, including the faithfulness of God during difficult times, the importance of protecting our freedoms, and building strong family relationships.
3. What genre is your book?
I loosely define The Moses Conspiracy as Christian Speculative Fiction because it takes place in 2025. Although it takes place in the near future, I’ve avoided a lot of techno-babble. One take-away I wanted for the reader was the possibility this or something similar could happen.
4. Please give us a thumbnail sketch of The Moses Conspiracy.
A trip to post-terrorized Washington, D.C. in 2025 and an unusual buggy accident in Bird-in-Hand, PA set in motion events that expose a diabolical plan to destroy the Christian community. Ellie and John Zimmerman find themselves embroiled in a life-threatening investigation, fighting a shadowy enemy.
