With a passion for great fiction for young people, Sara Shanning has several series to keep readers enthralled. From Biblical spec-fic, Steampunk, and Fantasy romance, Sara writes of light dimming darkness in her stories, many of which include angels–including an angel with amnesia!
Listen in to learn why I feel like I met both a kindred spirit and a new friend when I got to talk with her.

Sometimes the Greatest Truths Shine Best in Excellent Speculative Fiction
My chat with Sara Shanning centered on great covers, exciting fiction, and the love of writing for young people. As a mother who sees the sorts of things that are available for youth entertainment, Sara works hard to provide a better, more appropriate alternative.
Christian Apocalyptic Spe-fic in the Chosen Angels series focuses on the seven seals of Revelation, something that began as a NaNoWriMo project.
Steampunk can be found in her Mechanical Angel novel that will eventually become a duology.
And finally, fantasy in the Angel Song story we spoke of at length… and not at all. Too many chances for spoilers for this one!
