Elizabeth Goddard is an award-winning author with well over a dozen romance and romantic suspense novels, including the romantic mystery, THE CAMERA NEVER LIES—winner of the prestigious Carol Award in 2011 from the AMERICAN CHRISTIAN FICTION WRITERS.
Beth (as she likes to be called) fell in love with fiction at a young age, reading fantasy and historical novels. As a child she wrote poems, and has since written articles, short stories and novellas.It wasn’t until 2001 that she started writing. Joining American Christian Fiction Writing helped her find her direction, and she published her first book in 2007. “I just love a good story,” says Goddard, “especially if that story includes deep spiritual truth along with suspense, action and adventure. And it’s my goal to write what I’d love to read.”
Ripping a plotline from the headlines, Goddard released her first repo man novel, TREACHEROUS SKIES (Love Inspired Suspense) in November 2012. The plot came from reading the story of a real live repo man and some of his dangerous adventures retrieving luxury jets and yachts from South American drug lords, presidents of third world countries and other unscrupulous groups.With her July 2013 release, she has hit her stride.
In RIPTIDE, two surprises await high-stakes repo man Jake Jacobson. First, there’s old flame Kelsey Chambers. Second, gunfire! Seizing the luxury yacht should have been easy, but he hadn’t planned on Kelsey’s appearance. Or that smugglers would hijack the vessel to find an antique map hidden on board. The map is Jake and Kelsey’s only leverage…but it carries a price. Without it, they’re as good as dead. With it, they’re the target of a relentless hunt. Their failed relationship has Kelsey afraid to rely on Jake again. Can she count on him with their lives on the line?
Currently, Goddard is working on the third story in this collection with a working title of WILDERNESS PERIL.
A member of several writing organizations, Goddard judges numerous contests and mentors new writers. A pastor’s wife, she home schools her children, serves with her husband as he pastors a church in Louisiana and writes.“I often think how blessed I am to be doing something I love so much,” she says. And, when asked to state her goal for her stories, “I want them to have an intense ride, a powerful emotional experience while reading.”
