Series: Beautiful Justice
Andrew McKenzie has lived most of his life tormented by guilt and pain, haunted by the secrets of his past. When he is hired to work for Sienna and Jonathan Driscoll, his life changes more drastically than he could have ever imagined. Before long, Drew learns that this is not an ordinary job. There is definitely something unusual about the Driscoll family. Especially their son, Justice Quinn.
Drew is introduced to the Driscolls’ daughter, Bella Maura, with whom he shares a special bond. As his relationship with Bella develops, Drew learns that he is not the only one hiding a secret. Each new day brings with it shocking revelations about the unique spiritual gifts of the Driscolls, and their God-given obligation to people suffering at the hands of the darkness and evil of the world.
Where is God’s justice? Does anyone hear the prayers of the abused, those too broken and weak to defend themselves? Why does it seem that so often the unjust escape punishment on the earth? Justice Quinn deals with each of these questions, as well as the concept of intercessory prayer, in order to help us understand why God’s timing must be reverenced.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a Nebraska novelist and Justice Quinn is my third release. It is Book Two of the Beautiful Justice series. Book Three is currently in the making and the one I am most excited about!
What was your motivation behind this project? Justice Quinn is part of a series of books. The first of the Beautiful Justice series, Bella Maura, was written for the heart of young women, especially those who may have struggled with abuse. Justice Quinn parallels this idea, but was written for the heart of young men. The fictional characters in each book detail what life could become if people would turn away from the world and look to Jesus for their healing and Salvation. Although anyone can enjoy either title, these audiences were my primary focus while developing the first two books of the series.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope my readers will be inspired to passionately live a life for Christ. My primary goal is that new Christians, or even non-Christians, will find the characters relevant, and in so doing, will begin to imagine a better life for themselves. Visualization is very important when reformulating a lifestyle. These books show the heart of Christ for all people, no matter what their life has been like so far. And many long-term Christians find them refreshing and inspiring as well.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? A series is a lot of hard work, but it takes a writer (and reader) so much further into the heart of the matter. I loved writing this series. Book Three is really bringing it all together in an amazing way. I am very grateful to God for bringing the ideas to me and to my family for allowing me the time to complete it well. Books are not finished until they are read, so I thank my readers very much.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I am mostly influenced by the Word of God and His direct revelation to me. I don't claim to come up with this stuff on my own, whether it is material for my books or instruction for my own life. Music inspires me greatly as does nature, my horses and pets, and people. Personal struggles are great teachers as well, though they are not easy. My favorite authors include Joyce Meyer, George MacDonald, Saint Paul, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I have a stack of Frank Peretti, David Barton and John/Staci Eldredge to get through when this series is completed.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Thank you for reading and enjoying my books! I hope you get a lot of good out of them.
