Julie’s Note: I love to introduce readers to new-to-them authors and books. Each month I try to accomplish that with the Check This Out feature. I hope you take a look at Angel Beneath My Wheels!
Bio: Kathryn Moore grew up working on cars with her father in Indianapolis and now lives in southwest Michigan with her husband, two children and a little Yorkie named Bear. She is a graduate of Purdue University where she studied information technology, engineering, and chemistry. When she’s not working, writing or serving in her local youth ministry, she enjoys the outdoors with family and friends.
Through her writing, Moore strives is to bridge the gap between Christian literature and mainstream best sellers, to depict contemporary Christians in real-life stories of love, drama, action and adventure, to show (not tell!) what it means to live a Christ-centered life in today’s culture, and to provide wholesome fodder for more family-friendly movies.
A prolific reader, she’s always enjoyed the escape of a really good book and four years ago decided to try her hand at writing one of her own. Her first book, Angel Beneath My Wheels, was released on February 29th, 2016. If you’d like to receive her monthly short stories called Touches, join her mailing list here.
Beneath his playboy façade, young NASCAR driver Luke Brandt yearns for a family. Rachel Tate, an inventive, purity-ring-wearing mechanical engineer, is determined to prove herself in a male dominated industry. When Luke outbids Rachel on the only two muscle cars she could use to test her new vapor-fueled engine, she wants nothing to do with him. But Luke’s gentle ways and down home country charm just might win her over—if his painful past doesn’t push her away.
When she begins to touch his heart, he’s haunted by bitter memories of the only woman he’s ever loved—the mother who abandoned him as a little boy. With an intense trust that God will lead her on life’s journey, Rachel perseveres, her innocence and grace breach his defenses and his walls begin to crumble. As they join forces to bring her remarkable invention to market, their love, their very lives, are threatened by the iron-tight grip that “Big Oil” holds over the whole auto industry and Luke realizes his final happiness must come through faith, in the One who has always loved him… and always will.
“Creating stories has always been a powerful tool to communicate truths that need to be heard in a relevant way. Angel Beneath My Wheels captivates you and takes you on an ages old journey of the potential to discover trust lost. Often hidden beneath the surface of our personas we create resides, in many of us, a need to trust once again, and in the process receive healing. Kathryn has written a wonderful and creative novel that will take you beyond fiction to fact… that trust is healing, and when built upon a foundation of faith in Christ, saving, and conquering.” ~ Billy E. Mauldin Jr., President and CEO, Motor Racing Outreach, co-author of The Race: Living Life on Track
Kathryn Sue Moore’s inspiring debut, Angel Beneath My Wheels, is brimming with romance, passion, and heart. With a spunky protagonist who can turn heads and change carburetors how cool is that?! Christian romance readers and NASCAR fans will flock to this charming, uplifting novel. ~ Lori Nelson Spielman, best-selling author of The Life List and Sweet Forgiveness
Having been married for more than 40 years, and having ministered to late-stage cancer patients for more than 10 years, I had thought that perhaps my heart might have lost its ability to be moved and made emotionally vulnerable. Angel Beneath My Wheels reminded me of the sweetness and innocence of first love.” My heart was touched by this story and I believe yours will be too. ~ Rev. Dr. Michael Barry, author of A Reason for Hope, A Season for Hope, The Art of Caregiving and The Forgiveness Project
