Tonight on the Write Stuff — The Gnostic Library with Lewis Smith

gnosticThe deserts of Egypt conceal the greatest treasure since the Dead Sea Scrolls…
…and the twisted hate of a master terrorist!

Father Duncan MacDonald, Vatican archeologist, has been doing routine parish work in the States near the home of his friends Joshua and Isabella Parker, who are investigating a mysterious Spanish mission in north Texas. Suddenly Duncan is called away to help excavate an ancient library full of writings by the early Christian sect known as the Gnostics, discovered by a villager in Egypt’s Black Desert.

Working with British archeologist Dr. Katherine Feezel, Duncan begins retrieving and preserving the scrolls and codices from the stone structure, buried in the dunes for seventeen hundred years. Katherine, a lovely widow, stirs feelings that he had long suppressed in his service to God and the Church. Before he can resolve this inner conflict, the two scholars are kidnapped by a savage band of jihadists known as the Army of Allah and their sinister leader, Muhammad Al-Shavadi. Josh and Isabella and the rest of the Capri Team race across the globe to help rescue their friend and colleague, but time is running out – and Duncan must decide how far he will go to save the woman he has fallen in love with!

The Gnostic Library brings the adventures of the Capri Team to a heart-pounding conclusion!

lewissigning.jpgLewis Ben Smith’s many friends describe him as a man of numerous talents, and with good reason.

As much at home behind the pulpit as he is in his classroom, where he teaches history to students of six different grades, Lewis also loves walking down ancient riverbeds seeking to add to his museum-like collection of stone artifacts left behind by Texas’ ancient inhabitants. He has even helped excavate the fossilized remains of a Mosasaur, a type of marine dinosaur that roamed the shallow seas that once covered his neck of the woods more than 70,000,000 years ago.

A voracious lifelong reader, Lewis saw his thrilling debut novel, The Testimonium, released by eLectio Publishing in the summer of 2014.

It was soon followed in the spring of 2015 by a historical title, The Redemption of Pontius Pilate, and then another modern archaeological mystery, Matthew’s Autograph, published that same autumn. Theophilus, which covers much of the Roman world in New Testament times, came out in 2017, and most recently his fifth novel The Gnostic Library, which sets its cast of archaeologists down amid the turmoil of present-day Egyp

Tonight on the Write Stuff — The Sorcerer’s Bane with Chris Wachter

baneLight and dark battle for the soul of six-year old Prince Rayne, heir to the throne of all Ochen and prophesied Light Bringer of the One. Kidnapped, his memories and voice blocked, claimed as a slave, and given the name Wren, he is raised as an assassin.
Sigmund, powerful ancient sorcerer and enemy of the One, plans to frustrate the prophecy by using the young prince to assassinate his own parents. With the death of the Light Bringer and the failure of the prophecy, Sigmund and his demonic colleagues will be free to bring darkness to all seven worlds of Ochen. But what the sorcerer fails to realize is that the One has already claimed the boy, placing within his spirit a glowing ember of light, and giving him support in a world of abuse and violence.
The Seven Words fantasy series, though set in a far distant future, is a sword and sorcery tale that explores the working out of prophecy through themes of forgiveness, trust, and courage.

christ.jpgI started out as a reader … but then, I guess most writers start that way.
Enter: Chris as author!
I am a sixty-something mother of three amazing sons, grandmother of one cute little grandson and a pretty as a princess granddaughter. I have been married to the same absolutely amazingly patient man for nearly forty years.
I spend my days obsessively writing. (Wow, I really do!) And I have been known to spend way too much time gaming on a borrowed X-box.
A degree in Performing Arts and English Education from Rowan University, a job as a professional proofreader, and more than fifty-years of experience as a voracious reader of multiple genres (most especially fantasy), honed by a level of maturity I didn’t possess when I was in my twenties, have prepared me to finally write what I have always loved, fantasy (specifically Christian Fantasy).
I love living in rural Lancaster County, PA and if I’m not writing, I’m reading, walking my dog, working on counted cross stitch, or spending time with family and friends.
