Former lawman Mex Anderson is trying to cope with the horrific murders of his family as best he can. Moving from a small Mexican town to the snowy mountains of Colorado has helped. But it seems nothing can ever take away the gut-wrenching pain of his loss, in Peg Brantley‘s suspense novel “The Sacrifice.”

When the head of the drug cartel responsible for the killings approaches Mex with an offer that would reveal the individuals behind the murders, it might lead to the one thing that would allow him to heal: revenge.

“The Sacrifice” is a novel of guilt and redemption that proves there is always hope for tomorrow even in the midst of unconscionable evil.

The Indie Author Life

In a recent interview with Denver Westword, indie author PegB Brantley talked about making the transition from corporate America, to novelist:

On your website it says that you worked at corporation for most of your career before you started writing. When did you decide that writing was a dream that you couldn’t ignore any longer?

I started working in corporate America when I was literally 19. I got my own place and kept having bills to pay, so I kept working. I started writing probably about 10 or 11 years ago when my bonus son had a stroke. He was 39 years old and he had to move back home for rehabilitation. I was running a business that just caved because I spent so much time looking after him. So after about a year and a half and I thought “you know what? I’ve always wanted to write a book. Let’s get this done.” I did not realize –thought I’d always read a lot– that writing a books was not as easy as I thought it would be. I thought I would be the next undiscovered Dean Koontz, that publishers would ask “where have you been all this time?” Wrong. Really wrong. They weren’t just waiting for me. So, it was a very sad event that kicked off my writing, but if it hadn’t happened that way, I probably wouldn’t be doing what I love.
