Sarah Scheele

Biography

Author of stories set in a psuedo-European realistic fantasy world, comic skits that poke fun of trends, and the occasional sci-fi. More influenced by movies and TV than books. Runs a social networking blog for Christian authors. And that's about it.

God makes what he has made. He has made me and I rejoice.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on a small farm, and felt socially marginalized as a kid. As a result, I'm pretty realistic in my view of people's behavior. Many people act out their fantasies in fiction, but I've always had to be honest about how life is and that has certainly affected my writing voice.
When did you first start writing?
At about age eight. (Well, I drew little picture boards that dramatized books before that age, but that doesn't really count as creative writing.)

  • The Moment Max Forgot Me on Nov. 24, 2013

    I was startled by how much I liked this story. The author’s sincere, sympathetic portrayal of the heroine impressed me. The sad undercurrent that ran through Maddy’s dialogue and relationships rang very true to me. I didn’t feel she was particularly like me, but I could certainly believe she’s out there somewhere. Maddy works as private secretary to a successful lawyer named Peter Maxwell. She constantly slaves for this man, who is boring, selfish, and rapidly balding. He relies on her help constantly outside of work, but he’s too complacent and full of himself to notice her obvious feelings for him. When a man confronts Max about his wife’s murderer, a former client of Max’s, Max and Maddy have a series of sudden adventures that result in the loss of Max’s memory and a complete change in his life. I couldn’t stand Max, but the romance worked for me because I really believed Maddy would fall in love with him. Unlike most romance heroes, he felt like a real person. The elements of religion were tactfully woven in towards the end. The heroine was shown at first as somewhat of a Christian, but a bit shallow and distant from God. This gave her character a chance to grow as well. I should mention that there were two quite lengthy scenes of people having conversations while perched dangerously on the tiny, narrow ledges outside windows of tall office buildings. This is so highly unusual that I found it a little distracting, although it certainly made the scenes memorable.
