Susan K. Beatty is in her third career—from journalist to homeschool tech writer to her life-long dream to be a novelist. She is proof you can start a new writing career late in life. Susan released her first published fiction in September 2019 and is now an award-winning author. Novel number eight released May 16 and number nine releases May 30, 2023. She is passionate about finding courage through faith and grit. Susan is the author of the California Homeschool Manual (in her second career), was the assistant director of the SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference, and is the president of her local ACFW-OC Chapter.

Susan’s latest book is entitled Relinquished.

No one takes her kid and gets away with it.

When Teagan Parsons discovers that the Amber Alert on a celebrity couple’s child is actually her daughter, she’s determined to rescue the daughter she relinquished years ago. If she’d only realized the emotions her mission would rekindle…

Having a cousin in the FBI gets her closer to the case than she could have dreamed, but instead of listening to the lead FBI agent’s warnings to “leave the job to the professionals,” Teagan begins following everyone she suspects. That old saying, “Don’t quit your day job,” has never been truer, but she’ll do whatever it takes to bring her daughter home safe.

Mitch McCartney has enough trouble on his hands without dealing with a guilt-ridden, biological mother bent on making up for past sins. Teagan seems to have developed a talent for getting things wrong and putting herself in danger. Oh… and she’s adding theft to her rap sheet—theft of his heart, anyway.

Then Teagan goes missing.

Learning you can’t undo the past is a tough enough lesson without adding on more mistakes, but with Mitch’s help, Teagan may, with the Lord’s Guidance, forge a brighter future this time.
