Writing Through Dark Times

 

by

 

Susan J. Reinhardt

 

"That's it! That's your book, and you'll write it in four months. It will be called Ghosts of the Past.

 

My late husband's declaration back in 2004 launched my fiction journey. Prior to this momentous occasion, we'd visited Gettysburg during the Christmas season. Standing in the old-fashioned town square, I heard (with my inner ears) the forefathers' voices as fading echoes.

 

Up to that point, I'd focused on non-fiction and sought ways to express the Gettysburg experience in an article or devotional. After many frustrating attempts, I put it aside and prayed for direction.

 

While I still had no idea what to write, I sat at the computer, and characters introduced themselves one by one. Exactly four months later, a 55,000-word manuscript sat on my desk.

 

Two months later, my beloved was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia with the Philadelphia gene. The book gathered dust for the next seven months as we fought this deadly disease together. Writing became a means to inform our family and friends about our daily triumphs, experiences, and setbacks.

 

When the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference rolled around, David insisted I attend. The editors I met sent me home with two assignments: 1) Expand the story to 80,000-100,000 words, and 2) Learn how to write fiction. Ouch!

 

In between my husband's treatments and hospital stays, I studied and revised my work in progress. I often went weeks without looking at the manuscript as the cords that tethered his spirit to his body frayed. On a spring evening in 2007, he slipped into the arms of the Savior.

 

Once again, the manuscript languished as grief consumed me. Yet, the thought of David's excitement and support for my writing gave me a reason to move forward and pursue publication. I threw myself into the task with renewed vigor.

 

In 2013, the re-titled book, The Moses Conspiracy, hit Amazon through a small press. Two more books, The Scent of Fear, and The Christmas Wish soon followed. After parting company with that publisher, my agent suggested I re-issue all my books and publish the third book in The Moses Trilogy called Out of The Mist, through Amazon White Glove.

 

As I wrote to honor the Lord and my husband's faith in the vision, the spark ignited my desire to go on with life. God used the story not only to galvanize readers to preserve our freedoms, but also to heal my broken heart.

 

Book Blurb for The Moses Conspiracy:

In 2025, two seemingly unconnected events set a diabolical plan in motion. Ellie and John Zimmerman find themselves embroiled in a life-threatening investigation, fighting a shadowy enemy.

Several years after a terrorist attack on Washington, D.C., Ellie and her son, Peter, go on a field trip to the nation's capital. Her greatest fear is realized when they become separated. Back home, John witnesses a buggy accident with unusual circumstances.

Caught between strained family relationships and ominous warnings from a faceless enemy, the couple rely on God for wisdom and protection. When the true nature of a past tragedy is revealed, will they survive the heartache it brings?

Hi Narelle - Australia! Thank you for commenting. One of my cousins just moved there a few months ago. :)

Susan J. Reinhardt From Pennsylvania At 6/30/2017 10:20:14 PM

Hi Cathy - You're welcome. The Moses Conspiracy is dedicated to my late husband. I just wish he could have seen the published version. Hi Cleo - Thanks for your encouraging comment. I've learned to look at challenges as opportunities for miracles. :)

Patti Shene From At 6/30/2017 6:02:01 PM

Hi everyone. Thanks for the recent comments. I am glad you enjoyed Susan's post. She is an amazing and inspiring lady! I have not been near a computer to respond to everyone individually, but you are always welcome and appreciated! It's fun to see comments from outside the US! Waving to Australia!

Cathy Biggerstaff From North Carolina At 6/30/2017 1:34:09 PM

Thank you for sharing your story with us of God's amazing work in your life. May He continue to bless your life and your writing career.

Cleo Lampos From Illinois At 6/30/2017 12:35:48 PM

Your story is so compelling all by itself. Your books must be filled with the passion and emotions that only an Over 50 Writer can bring. Congratulations on your publishing career. May it prosper.

Narellw From Australia At 6/30/2017 1:58:06 AM

Hi Thank you so much for having this give away. I have only just recently started reading Christian books and only have heard of a couple of authors I can not wait to read/meet new authors and their are books. Thank you once again for this opportunity to enter this giveaway.

Susan J. Reinhardt From Pennsylvania At 6/29/2017 7:48:23 PM

Hi Karen - Thanks for commenting. Who would have thought a brief visit to Gettysburg would result in a trilogy? I'm always amazed at how God works. Hi Catherine - I appreciate your kind words and hope you enjoy the other books in the trilogy.

Patti Shene From At 6/29/2017 11:33:13 AM

Hi Karen! Thank you so much for stopping by and letting us know you were here. I love to read the stories of my guests on The Over 50 Writer. They are always so full of determination and inspiration!

Patti Shene From At 6/29/2017 11:31:22 AM

Hi Catherine. I have not read Susan's work to date. Between her post and your comment, it sounds like she definitely belongs on my TBR list! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Patti Shene From At 6/29/2017 11:29:54 AM

Susan, it is a delight to have you here. Thank you so much for spending time with me and my readers.

Karen Lange From Kentucky At 6/29/2017 7:32:54 AM

Patti, thanks for hosting Susan. It's always interesting to see how an author's story came to life. Susan is an inspiration. I'll pass on the giveaway since I already have Susan's books. Have a great weekend!

Catherine Ulrich Brakefield From Leonard, Michigan At 6/29/2017 7:20:28 AM

Our Good Lord moves in mysterious ways! From the pain of losing your wonderful husband you brought to your readers a wonderful series! I have read the first book, The Moses Conspiracy and truly enjoyed this. I am looking forward to reading The Sent of Fear, and Out of the Mist.

Susan J. Reinhardt From Pennsylvania At 6/29/2017 6:40:09 AM

Hi Patti - Thanks for having me on your blog today. I look forward to chatting with your readers later. God bless, Susan :)
