Interview with Sarah Carter
Did you have a specific moment where you knew you wanted to write this book series, or was it over a period of time this desire grew? How did God lead you to accomplish this goal?
I have also wanted to write a book series, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't get it to work with what I felt was right. Then I began to see all these Non-Christian books without God getting all this popularity and people noticing them. So, I realized I needed to make a series similar to these but to where it talks about God, Jesus, and what is to come in the End times. That way the truth will be out there and I will know people will get saved and know God loves them.
How did you become interested in writing about the End Times?
Because so many fear the End times, fear the world is ending and all life is doomed, but the rapture is not the ending for those who follow Christ and love him. It is when all his children can go and live with him once again. God said to his children to not be afraid, and trust in him no matter what is going on around them.
How has your writing changed from your first writings to now?
My writings are more Christian now, more powerful and written like they are meant to be written. I have Christian characters taking on a dark world around them, but even with all the darkness around them they can trust in God to keep them safe and still be able to teach the gospel to those who will hear.
Where was your favorite place / setting to write in? Does anything in particular inspire you to write?
I can write almost anywhere, even in the school lunch room or on the playground. My classmates thought I was nuts. Now what inspired me was all those older cartoons like Kim Possible, Avatar the Last Airbender, and Teen Titans. They weren't Christian so I wanted to make a series like those classics that had a Christian base to it. I wanted to reach a younger audience, who did not know God, but were willing to try. There are some who would follow God if they knew he really did love them.
What is the biggest thing God taught you through developing your writing?
To speak the truth and nothing but the truth. To keep trying no matter how hopeless it seems, to have faith your dreams will come even when you spent years fighting yourself on what to do. God is loving but life is hard.
Do you feel that God is leading you to write more books? What are you current projects?
Yes I believe he is, my current projects I am working on are my second Seeker book where the Seekers go back to the year 1994 (on Will Carter’s birth) to find Will Carter's roots on how she came to be who she was. Meanwhile a new character is coming to play - a boy who had just lost everything to a dark force and hasn't found who he is meant to be yet.
What advice do you have for fellow writers?
We are all pieces of a whole big world; we all come alive and fall apart. We all need someone to love us for who we are. And if we look at each other, seeing not our differences, but how we all have been hurt and broken - how we all know there are 1,000 reasons how we got where we are now but not many on how we all feel so hurt lost and confused...why it always has to hurt no matter where we have been or what we have done...my advice is to look at someone different and ask how they got broken... they could hold your inspiration.
