DEADLY TARGET - Elizabeth Goddard - One Free Book

Welcome back, Elizabeth. Let’s do some fun questions first. What song most closely resembles your life? I can’t say that I’ve thought about that much, but I can tell you my favorite song this week—“In the House” by Crowder. Actually, I can say the song is a good reflection of my life in that I’ve lived in a parsonage next to a church—several different ones—over the last fifteen plus years. Recently we moved across state and found ourselves across the street from our same denomination and my husband is on staff there too. Ha ha!

Do you have a favorite Bible verse? And why is it a favorite? A scripture I repeatedly go back to is Psalm 121: 1-2—I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from. . . The scripture is especially beautiful to me now since we’ve moved to an area where I can often look at Mt. Rainier and so I think of this verse!

What is the one thing you wish you could go back and change in your life? Only one thing? There are too many things I wish I could change. I wish I had follows the Lord’s call to write much sooner, but then again I have to trust that my writing career has unfolded according to his timing.

What is the most important characteristic for a good friend to have? To be a good listener, of course! I’m blessed to be surrounded with good listeners, and I my friends also consider me a good listener.

I so agree. What extracurricular activities did you participate in when you were in school? As many as possible. Tennis, French club. Science club. Junior Engineering Society. College newspaper, to name a few.

What is your favorite movie of all times? I’m a huge movie buff and it’s hard to choose, but love I, Robot with Will Smith.

Tell us about why you wrote this book. Deadly Target is the second book in the Rocky Mountain Courage series, and of course, Dr. Erin Larson had to get her story too.

Please give us the first page of the book.

Puget Sound

For a few hours every Saturday morning, Erin Larson could forget that evil existed.

And usually, only on the water.

She dipped the double-bladed paddle into the sea, then again on the other side—left, right, left, right, left, right— alternating strokes in a fluid motion to propel her kayak across the blue depths. Her friend Carissa Edwards paddled close behind.

Left, right. Left, right. Left, right.

On the water she was close to nature and far from the chaos and noise of the city even though she and Carissa paddled along the shoreline and could see the cityscape in the distance. The quiet calmed her mind and heart. The rhythmic paddling mesmerized her. The exertion exhilarated her. Cleansed her of the stress and anxiety acquired after a week of forced labor.

Okay, that wasn’t fair. Her suffering certainly wasn’t physical in nature.

Water. Mountains. Sky. She took in the sights and once again . . . forgot.
