What do you get when you have a full-term pregnant mom with a dangerous medical condition and a mentally unstable infertile woman who is desperate to have a baby? “Stealing Jenny” is about Jenny Callahan, mother of five, who is hoping to have more children. After three miscarriages and some difficult moments during her current pregnancy, Jenny is only a week from delivery and feels like she is ‘home free.’ However, her neighbor is secretly hatching a plot that will put the lives of Jenny and her unborn baby in danger. “Stealing Jenny” by Ellen Gable is a faith-based suspense novel with over 330 four and five star reviews on Amazon.
“The Examiner” says: “It’s tightly written, nice and tense, complete with character studies, personal histories, and one of the better bad guys I’ve seen in a while.”
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I remember watching the news footage just after the Laci Peterson kidnapping. As someone who has gone through five C-sections and was not able to have a baby naturally for health reasons, I thought, “If I had ever been kidnapped while pregnant, I would not have survived.” That small seed of an idea became an entire story within a few months. I had only planned to write a short story, but it turned into a full length novel.
