Tricia Goyer---Author of Historical Fiction


My friend Tricia Goyer has a new book that she's taking on tour right now. She's an amazing author of historical fiction and has done a number of fascinating interviews with retired service men and women to gain a deeper insight into the lives and hearts of her characters. I'll be posting more about Tricia in the next day or two, so please check back. But until then, read this little blurb about her book.

Book 2 in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series

A Shadow of Treason (Fall 2007)
Sophie discovers that nothing is as she first imagined. When Walt, the reporter who helped her over the border, shows up again after Guernica is bombed, Sophie is given an impossible mission. She must leave behind the man she's fallen in love with and return to the person who betrayed her. Another layer of the war in Spain is revealed as Sophie is drawn into the international espionage schemes that could turn the tide of the war and help protect the soldiers from the International Brigade ... she must find a way to get a critical piece of information to Walt in time.

Tricia's Bio:
