I love to write fiction, and because of my law enforcement background, I write mystery/suspense and deal with cops, crimes, and criminals. Sometimes, when researching for a novel, the articles and websites tell tragic stories, emotionally draining. The darkness can be overwhelming. My upcoming release, Cold Aim, deals with human trafficking. Talk about dark. Modern-day slavery is far more prevalent than people want to believe.

And it's not only the crimes. Lately, a lot has been going on in law enforcement that is tragic and sad. It seems like every day an officer is shot—on the whole, the world is just going crazy. I'm not complaining, because with my fiction I control the outcome, so nothing goes unpunished as far as my novels are concerned. Often, however, I do need a little recharging, a reminder that God is in control and evil never wins.

A few months ago, I moved to paradise. At least it's paradise to me. I moved to the Big Island of Hawaii, looking for a more temperate climate, something that would be easier on my back and my knees. So far, so good. Usually, the temp runs about eighty-five, but nice, gentle trade winds make it feel like seventy- five. Skies are blue, plants are colorful, and the water at the beach is a pleasant temperature. So now my go-to recharge outlet is the beach.

I take my chair, my umbrella, and stake out a spot of sand. After a dip in the ocean, I face the sun, dry off, and relax. While the Bible doesn't say that heaven is beach-like and temperate, when I'm recharging in my beach chair, this is what I picture in my mind. From my vantage point, I'm reminded that not everyone is bad, not every situation is dangerous, and that there is beauty and pleasantness in this world to enjoy.

It's a resort atmosphere, so people are on vacation and for the most part, everyone is in a good mood. (As fictional a location you'll ever find in real life.) As I sit and enjoy the sun and the sand, I can feel the lights on my battery change from red to green. It makes it easy to return to home and computer. I can pick up where I left off on my novel recharged, plot the story, create the characters, and do my best to craft a story to intrigue people and inspire them, without them ever being bogged down by darkness. I'll work at full capacity until reality and life drain the battery down. Then it's back to the outlet, back to the beach, let's do this all over again.

COLD AIM by Janice Cantore

The Line of Duty #3
Police Chief Tess O'Rourke's small town is still reeling from a devastating fire when the FBI asks for help: Could she shelter a witness in a high-profile human trafficking case? Initially reluctant to put the townspeople of Rogue's Hollow at risk, Tess is swayed after she sees Pastor Oliver Macpherson's genuine conviction to rescue those in need, a trait in him she's coming to love more each day.

Tess's fledgling faith is tested when crews of workmen from out of town come in to assist with the fire cleanup and she worries that one of these strangers might shine a light on things best kept hidden. Neither she nor Oliver knows that Rogue's Hollow is already home to a suspect from a twenty-five-year-old murder case . . . and someone is taking cold aim at those Tess is sworn to protect.
