Meet Ronie Kendig, my guest today.
Christy Award winning author Ronie Kendig grew up an Army brat and married a veteran. Her life is never dull in a family with four children and three dogs. She has a degree in psychology, speaks to various groups, volunteers with the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), and mentors new writers. Rapid-Fire Fiction, her brand, is exemplified through her novels. She’s here today to talk about her latest book.
A year ago in Afghanistan, Green Beret Heath Daniel's career was destroyed. Along with his faith.
Though his passion is to be back in action, the medical discharge has forced Heath—and Trinity—to the sidelines.
Military intelligence officer Darci Kintz is captured while secretly tracking the Taliban. Only one dog can handle the extreme conditions to save her. Trinity. Only one man can handle Trinity.
Time is running out on the greatest—and most dangerous—mission of their lives.
AN EXCLUSIVE “LOST SCENE” FROM TRINITY:
Below is a deleted scene from TRINITY: MILITARY WAR DOG.
“Why are you baiting him?” Aspen swatted Timbrel's arm. “You need to learn how to play nice.”
“Playing nice leaves the good guys dead.”
Aspen cast her friend a look. Timbrel had lost the first and only man she'd fallen in love with—a fellow handler in Iraq—during a night-raid gone bad. And the whole Prince Charming thing? Surely Timbrel wasn't... “Why are you looking at him like that?”
Eyes locked on her target, she chewed her bottom lip, thinking. “Did you see it?”
Aspen shot a look to the rugged-looking handler. Yeah, she'd seen it too. His hesitation, the way he'd look at Talon as if he saw himself. His gun-shy attitude. Wasn’t he a Green Beret? She couldn’t imagine a Special Forces grunt backing down the way he had several times.
“If he goes back there,” Timbrel said, “ya know, the way Jibril wants him to, he's going to die.”
“He's still trapped in the past.”
“Okay,” Aspen said, watching Daniels hustling his Belgian Malinois through the course. There, with his dog, he was in his element. No hesitation. No backing down. But what worried her, was not the man’s hesitation but Timbrel’s. “What are you thinking?”
“We all go.”
Aspen's breath backed into her throat, causing her to choke-cough. She cleared the snag and shook her head. “No. Talon's not ready.”
Timbrel look at her over her shoulder. “What if taking Talon back there unlocks the warrior he once was?”
Was that even possible? Did that side of her brother's beautiful dog still exist?
“We have to convince Jibril that we all go, or none of us go. Or this organization is dead before it starts.”
