The one missing person he can’t find

is the one who matters the most. 

Private Investigator Jax Rodriguez has been searching for his brother, Diego, for twenty years. When he stumbles upon another lead, he makes an agonizing decision—he will follow this last trail until it grows cold, and then he will marry the woman he loves and abandon his quest once and for all. 

Artist Mikayla Grant is terrified of losing another person close to her, but she has to let Jax go after his brother. Given the secrecy surrounding Diego’s disappearance, clearly Jax is heading into danger. When all contact with him is abruptly cut off, can Mikayla trust that God’s promise to never leave or forsake Jax will be enough to bring him safely home, or does she need to take matters into her own hands? 

As Jax attempts to survive the dangerous streets of Caracus, Venezuela and then face the myriad of unknown threats in the El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico, he is not the only one following his brother’s trail. 

A ruthless drug lord bent on revenge is using all his resources to discover the truth about what happened to Diego. If Jax can't stay one step ahead of his pursuer, then he, like his brother, could disappear and never be heard from again.

Can you tell us a little about yourself? 
Sure! I live in Ontario, Canada, about an hour east of Toronto with my husband of twenty-six years and our three mostly grown kids, two 12-year-old cockapoos, and a rabbit.

What do you do besides writing? 
Writing is my passion, but I also have an editing business and love mentoring new writers. In my spare time, I love reading, of course, and belong to two book clubs and three writer’s groups. Other favourite hobbies include meeting friends for coffee, walking, watching movies (especially old classics – Jimmy Stewart is my all-time fave!), and going on road trips.

What was your favorite part of researching for this book? 
Forged was a lot of fun to research, as it is set in Caracas, Venezuela, and the El Yunque rainforest in Puerto Rico. Although I wrote it during the pandemic and couldn’t actually travel to those places, I watched countless YouTube videos that made me feel as though I was right there. I also read books on Venezuela and Puerto Rico as well as talking to friends of ours who spent a few years in Puerto Rico. It was the next best thing to actually being in these beautiful countries, although some day I definitely hope to do that, especially since the research I did on some of the culinary specialties made me extremely hungry!

Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? 
Yes, absolutely. 

Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process? 
Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. I have written a few books without trying to find images of my main characters, but I do always have a very clear picture of them in my head as I’m writing. For Forged, I actually drew more inspiration by looking at pictures of the places where the story takes place, which helped me to fully immerse myself in the settings.
What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book? 
The underlying theme of all my books is that whatever we are going through we are never alone. God has promised to never leave us or forsake us, and even when we can’t feel him or it seems as though he is far from us, he is there, watching over us and walking through our trials with us. This theme is especially prevalent in Forged, as there are numerous references to “the fourth man” in the fire with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. The main characters cling to that story and to God’s promise to be with them as they go through their own fiery trials.

What can we look forward to coming from you in the future? 
I am currently working on book two in a different series with a human trafficking theme, two sparrows for a penny. Every Flower of the Field, the sequel to Every Star in the Sky, is coming out in February 2023. After that, I will be working on the third book in The Rose Tattoo Trilogy, Sharp Like Glass (book one in that series, Lost Down Deep, won the Carol Award for romantic suspense in 2021). So, lots going on!
