What did you want the reader to take away from your story?
Susan D: No matter how dark and desperate life may seem at any given moment, God is in control. For this series, we chose an overriding scriptural theme of God’s faithfulness based on the verse in Psalm 100: 5 (NIV), which says, "For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations."
Susan W: That God has plan bigger than what we see, and frankly, we might never know the end, but we can trust that it is good.
What is the hardest thing about writing as part of a team?
Susan D: I think the hardest part of writing as a team for me had to be the fear that my work would be a disappointment to my partner. If it was, Susie never said so. That in itself earns her a lifetime supply of Brownie points!
Susan W: I think that Susan and I have a very unique writing partnership – we collaborate on the plots, and they are stronger for our ideas twined together, plus we have a deep friendship. We’ve found that it works best to have one writer slap down the rough draft, and the other polish it. It’s a great way to create a piece that has more body and texture to it.
Is this book a standalone or part of a series? If series, what are the other books in the series?
This book was originally part of a 4-book series, a reverse generational saga that started in the contemporary and spiraled back to the past. Although each book stood alone, a mystery thread wound through the stories to connect them. And, of course, they’re all connected through their family lineage—as the “Heirs of Anton” series. After The Sovereign’s Daughter (originally named Oksana), comes Marina Russia
