When tragedy strikes, Juliana and her family must flee their home. Can they persuade a virtual stranger to help them? Juliana isn’t so sure, especially after their chaperone threatens to cane him. Even as Juliana struggles to trust him, she finds herself drawn to this mysterious man. Surely all she wants from him is refuge…
Rupert is a man whose life depends on his ability to remain unnoticed. What, then, is he supposed to do with this family he’s inherited? His life is overrun with an ancient chaperone who would terrify a lesser man, two spirited girls, and the secretive Juliana – someone he comes to think of as his own precious jewel.
With this new responsibility thrust upon him, Rupert will have to make sacrifices – but will God ask him to sacrifice everything?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love reading romantic suspense — or any suspense really — and have long wanted to try my hand at writing one. Jackal has a very light suspense theme running through it. In other words – it’s primarily an inspirational romance, but there’s definitely some added tension from the suspense. It was such a fun story to create, and I hope that as I move forward through this writing journey, I can continue to heighten the tension in my books with subplots filled with suspense
Who are your favorite authors?
There are so many good authors out there! I enjoy Davis Bunn, Steven James, Terri Blackstock, some of Harlan Coben’s books, Dean Koontz, and more. (You might catch a theme there. I enjoy suspense!)
