Can You Tell Me a Bit About Your Writing?
As a military brat and wife, I wanted to write a story that honored the sacrifices some military families make for our country. The Ring is fiction, but the details of military life are true. I finished the draft of the novel during NaNoWriMo in 2018.
by Sarah Anne Carter
Amanda knows three things about her life – she loves living in Tacoma, she wants to be a teacher and she will never marry a man in the military. Yet, when Lucas comes into the coffee shop where she works wearing a flight suit, he starts to change her mind about her future. She is determined to just be his friend, but the chemistry between them is undeniable and their relationship survives through two deployments and him being on work trips almost half of the time.
After they get married, they move across the country to Charleston, S.C., and Amanda finds a job, which helps somewhat with the loneliness of Lucas being gone a lot. She thought she was prepared for life as a military wife, but then she starts finding out the true sacrifices military families make.
