Amazon gift card and romance author Misty M. Beller

Escaping north is her only option... And he’s the only one with the skill to get her there.

Misty M. Beller writes romantic mountain stories, set on the 1800s frontier and woven with the truth of God’s love. She was raised on a farm in South Carolina, so her Southern roots run deep. Growing up, her family was close, and they continue to keep that priority today. Her husband and daughters now add another dimension to her life, keeping her both grounded and crazy.

God has placed a desire in Misty's heart to combine her love for Christian fiction and the simpler ranch life, writing historical novels that display God's abundant love through the twists and turns in the lives of her characters.

Writing is a dream come true for Misty. Her family, both immediate and extended, is the foundation that holds her secure in that dream.

Widowed and with child, Emma Malcom is fleeing from the reward offered for her arrest. She’s innocent of the dirty dealings her deceased husband orchestrated, but the angry townspeople didn’t stop to listen to her defense before she narrowly escaped with her life. Now, she and her twin brother, Joseph, must battle the mountain wilderness of the Rockies to reach Canada and the clean start she craves. But when a fall from the rocky cliff leaves Joseph wounded and weak, could the strange mountain man they encounter be God’s gift to see them to safety?

Simeon Grant makes bad choices. His deceased wife and twin babies are lost to him now because of his reckless decisions, and the penance he pays by living alone in this mountain wilderness is only a small piece of what he thinks he deserves. When a city woman, heavy with child, appears on his doorstep with her injured brother, her presence resurrects the memories he’s worked so hard to forget. And when she asks for his help to travel deeper into the mountain country, he can’t help wonder why God would force him to relive the same mistakes he’s already suffered through. Or maybe taking these two to safety could be the way to redeem himself.

But when their travels prove more treacherous than he imagined, Simeon finds himself pressing the limits of his ability to keep Emma and her brother safe. Can he overcome the past that haunts him to be the man she needs? Will Emma break through the walls around Simeon’s heart before it’s too late, or will the dangers of these mountains be the end of them all?

Still curious about the author? Time for a Q&A about books with Misty...

What inspires you to write?
Ooh, that’s a great question! I’d have to say a good story inspires me. Most of my books are set in the Rocky Mountains during the 1800s, and I love those remote frontier settings. A great story in that setting inspires me!

How long does it take you to write a book, on average?
Approximately three to four months, depending on how long the book is. I’ve usually been thinking about those characters and their story for a while, though, while I’m writing the previous book. By the time I finally get to write about them, I’m ready to dive in!

What are you working on right now?
I’m writing a novella for my current series, set in the 1830s in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It’s called This Freedom Journey and will be part of novella collection that releases in the summer. If readers would like an alert when it releases, sign-up here!

What's the best writing tip you can offer?
Get connected in a good national writing group. I’m part of American Christian Fiction Writers, and there are lots of groups out there for almost any genre. These groups provide excellent opportunities to learn the craft of writing, marketing, and networking. I wouldn’t have lasted long as a writer without ACFW!

What's a book written by another author everyone should read in their lifetime?
Hmm…That’s a tough one! Fiction can be so subjective, depending on a person’s tastes. There are some great non-fiction books, too! If I had to pick just one, I’d say the Bible.
