Susie skidded to a stop for a fourth time, her rubber-soled flats smudging black streaks on the grocery store’s waxed linoleum floor. She darted left, caught a glimpse of him shuffling past the opposite end of the ice cream aisle. Her mouthed flopped open to suck more air. A bead of sweat trickled down her temple. The chirping of items being rung up from the wall of checkout registers behind her bleated out as it did all day, every day. Her flaring nostrils snorted stale air conditioning and lemon-scented floor cleaner. When she made it to the coffee aisle, the man doubled back, so she jerked to a stop, mirrored him.
On leaving my residence for the day ahead, in crossing the street, in the middle of the intersection I walk through a lingering cloud of gunpowder. Police officers on foot, in pairs, are stationed at crossings in the vicinity of it on otherwise empty streets. Gunpowder in the air makes it seem like the officers were here when a shooting took place. Has a civilian been shot in armed robbery? Unlikely here, where there happens to be a bright streetlight. Besides, there’s no sign of trauma. It’s peaceful, though it wasn’t when police perhaps exchanged gunfire during a car chase some twenty minutes ago.

Though most aspiring authors will go through a phase of rejection when starting out their writing careers, very few will stick with it. Even fewer will be willing to go through ten years of rejections, three different literary agents, and four different manuscripts before finding their “match.” Cara Reinard, however, was willing to to through that process. After many years of writing, Cara’s debut novel, Sweet Water, is finally hitting bookshelves on January 1, 2021. Cara’s dedication has paid off because Sweet Water has already received thousands of positive reviews from readers and has cleared several bestseller lists on Amazon. We recently caught up with Cara on the eve of her novel’s release and were able to ask her some questions about her career and work.
