Author Spotlight - Jerry Sacher

It is my pleasure to introduce Jerry Sacher, author of Noble's Savior

Jerry Sacher
Tell us a little bit about how Noble's Savior came to life. What inspired the story?
Noble's Savior came to life because of my love for history and especially this particular time period 1910-1920, and also at the suggestion of my publisher at Dreamspinner Press who felt that I should write Historic Romance. When I sat down and tried to who I should write about and what time period they should live in, I though about Ancient Rome, Medieval Europe, and even New World Explorer's.
One day I was reading Tolstoy's War and Peace, and I thought to myself: The Napoleonic Wars? That was a possibility and in my mind I placed my two main character in that world, but in the end they had nothing to say. I looked for another time for them, and it was as if they wanted to become part of the Russian Revolution, and here they found a home, so I sat down and began writing. Sergei became a soldier in the Imperial Army, and Benjamin became the son of a British Diplomat. After the first chapter I realized that this couple had something to say, so I wanted to tell their love story, and Noble's Savior is the result
Who is your favorite character and what makes them so memorable to you?
I would have to say that Benjamin Carter is my favorite character. He's a strong man who knew about his sexuality even in a time when it was illegal and not talked about in public. He has respect for his parent's and it was on a mission for his father that he met Sergei, a wounded soldier in the Imperial Army.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what made you decide to write?
I'm married to a great guy named Dean, and we currently live in Chicago near the lake with two cats, and in the future we're planning a move to Eugene, Oregon. I love books especially history and literature, and I'm currently working on two more books: a M/M romantic comedy and a novel about the Civil War set during Sherman's March from Atlanta to the Sea.
What made me decide to write? Hmm, I could say that it's because i love to read or that I've always wanted tow rite since I could pick up a pencil, which of course is the truth, but I decieded to write because every character has a story to tell. Before I write, I sketch biography of every one in the story, and it's the bringing of these people to life that give me the incentive to write.
Any advice for aspiring authors?
My advice to aspiring authors would be: Write every day, and keep going. I was told once by a published author that even if you devote fifteen minutes a day to writing, and only come up with a sentence or a paragraph, you'll have a novel by the end of the year. I found out that it was true when I did my first novel: The Saint of San Francisco.
Closing remarks...
I want to thank everyone for stopping by. Check out Noble's Savior and also my first two books The Saint of San Francisco Series 1 and 2.
Hope you enjoy reading them, and please stop by my pages with any question…God Bless you all….Jerry Sacher 2014

Noble's Savior

To purge Benjamin of his desire to join the Army, his father, a senior British diplomat, entrusts him with a mission to Tsar Nicholas II's headquarters. On the way to Russia, Benjamin encounters Sergei Breselov, an officer in the Imperial Army, lying wounded in a field hospital. He persuades the authorities to let him escort Sergei to Petrograd, but their trip is halted when their train is attacked by deserting soldiers. Sergei and Benjamin must band together to survive and make their own way to the capitol.
The handsome Sergei Breselov stirs something in Benjamin, and to his surprise, his feelings are returned. Despite the forbidden nature of their association, their bond tightens as Sergei heals, and they are again thrust into the thick of war as the revolution rages around them, threatening to topple the Russian court forever.
