Treasure in a Field

Sharon K. Connell brings her romantic suspense and short stories to us this week. She is offering either one of the books she shares with us to a commenter–if out of the U.S., e-book only.

Sixteen years ago, my career as an author began. Since then, I’ve published five novels, one novella, and a collection of short stories. Most of my stories are in the Christian Romance Suspense genre. The Lord has given me the ideas for and guided me through each tale.

In August of last year, I published “Treasure in a Field,” a fictional story set in the farm community of North Bend, Nebraska, and filled with legends of treasure, ghosts, and strange events that cause the main characters to wonder what’s true and who they can trust.

Shocked by the deaths of her parents, Haley MacKenna returns from college to her family’s centuries-old farm. Strange, unexplainable events occur. Are the old legends of pirate treasure and ghosts true? What about the supposed Indian burial mound that is now their backfield? Does the old stone barn in the woods hold a secret?

Larry Landgraf, author of “Tales of the Riverside,” said this about my story.

“…This book is well-written and edited. I didn’t find any errors. The story flowed great. There was never a dull moment, and I couldn’t wait to find out how it would all turn out. This kept me turning the pages. I recommend this book highly.”

The story gained two articles in the North Bend Eagle newspaper, even though I took artistic license to describe various areas of the locale in order to make the plot work.

Following the publication of “Treasure in a Field,” I put together “Sharon’s Shorts ~ A Multi-Genre Collection of Short Stories.” These short stories came from my writing classes and contests. Some were prize-winning tales, and a couple of them wound up in anthologies. After prayer, I decided to publish the collection.

“Sharon’s Shorts” covers the genres of romance, suspense, mystery, fantasy, women’s fiction, fable, and even paranormal. 

This review is from a Kindle Reader. “5 stars. Very Enjoyable! I just love this collection of short stories! Each is well written and entertaining. I’ve also purchased copies to give to friends, and they have really enjoyed them.”

My new story is set in O’ahu. I’ve never had so much fun writing a tale. This novel will be published by summer under the title Ko’olau’s Secret.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to present my latest writing, Gail.

  1. Hi Sharon. I love stories about those returning to old family farms and discovering new things (as well as strange things). I’ve recently moved to my parents cabin on a forest road and am finding all kinds of strange and unique things. “Treasure in a Field” sounds right up my alley!! Thanks for sharing, and thanks as always, Gail, for your wonderful posts.

  2. A cabin on a forest road sounds ideal to me. What a great place to get away and write. Or read, for that matter. LOL. Strolling through the woods, listening to the sounds of nature. I envy you. Best wishes on your new home. And when you read Treasure in a Field, be sure to let me know how you liked your trip to the farmlands of North Bend, Nebraska. Especially what you thought of the old stone barn and its secret. 🙂

  3. What a plot. I can’t think of any farmer who would not enjoy watching this story unfold. Very much enjoyed learning about this new author; I feel I’ve made a new friend.

    • Why, thank you, J.D. Can always use a new friend. 🙂

      Yes, you’re right about the farmers loving the plot. The residents of North Bend, Nebraska received the story well. The book is in their library. I love it.

      During the research on the story, I learned quite a bit about how wonderful the people of this town are. Made quite a few new friends there too.

      Thanks for the comment. Hope you enjoy reading Treasure in a Field.
