A Word from Elisabeth...
The central theme of Foul Play is the resilience of God’s people. I am in awe of those who cope with immense tragedy in their lives by digging deep, persevering, and never giving up. God does not always provide an easy path for us. Oftentimes it is crooked and tortuous. Ex-SEAL, Cole Strachan, has not only lost his baby son to SIDS but his wife has divorced him, he suffers from flashbacks to a terrorist attack at a school in Afghanistan, and his faith in God hangs by a thread. Yet despite his personal struggles, he is able to summon up the grit and determination he needs to protect his old high school sweetheart from a malicious and anonymous attacker at the hospital where she works. The mark of a true hero is someone able to ignore his own personal suffering to focus on doing kind deeds for others. How could any woman not fall in love with a man like that?
Once I had created the character of Cole, the rest of the story kind of wrote itself. I rarely think ahead or make detailed plans when writing. I write by intuition. The medical plot line took a little tweaking, altering, and researching before I was totally happy with it, but I can’t say too much about this, as I might give some vital clue away. I mainly enjoyed pushing my characters to the edge of their emotional capabilities and then throwing them a lifeline, allowing their faith to both soar and plummet as the story unfolds. After all, isn’t this how faith works in real life too?
Foul Play is only my third published book, and I feel myself growing in confidence and enjoyment with each one I write. I am humbled that I have been given this opportunity to write Christian romance, and every day I remind myself never to take it for granted.
