#13 Terri Blackstock

A New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author, Terri Blackstock has sold more than seven million books worldwide. Here bestselling series include If I Run, Cape Refuge, Newpointe 911, and the SunCoast Chronicles. Her honors include two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others.

Although she is primarily known for her suspense fiction, she also wrote the dystopian Restoration series: In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to a time before electricity, the Branning family faces a choice. Will they hoard their possessions in order to survive–or trust God to provide as they share their resources with those around them? Yesterday’s world is gone. Family and community are all that remain, and the outage is bringing out the worst in some.

“The fact is that I’m a Christian reader as well. So, I really think about when I’m reading a book, what makes me feel defiled in some way? If I’m reading a really gruesome book, and there’s a lot of blood, and there’s a lot of violence, you know it makes me feel defiled. I don’t want to do that to my readers, so there are lines I won’t cross. But I do have murder, and I do have blood. But I try not to make the reader wallow in it.”
