7. Susan Sleeman

Prolific suspense writer Susan Sleeman keeps readers on the edge of their seats—and seems to be in the middle of multiple series at any given moment. She’s the bestselling author of more than thirty-five romantic suspense and mystery novels, with sales exceeding one million copies. She’s also won several awards, including the ACFW Carol Award and the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award. Her recent output includes Seconds to Live (Bethany House), the first book in her Homeland Heroes series.

“It can be a challenge at times to balance a romance, a complicated suspense plot, and a spiritual message. I try to make the characters romantic conflict also have to do with their spiritual issues so when they resolve the spiritual issue they realize they can love again. This makes it easier to balance the elements, and I also think it’s more powerful for the reader because loving God is an integral part of a Christian’s life and effects everything we do.”
