The Top Five Things You Might Not Know About Fateful Connections

By Karen Charles


  • At a Christmas brunch my friend, Sandy, told a story of what happened to her brother
    who was at a CEO conference on 9/11. I was so intrigued by the bazaar events that I
    decided to develop it into a Thriller.
  • After I heard the story my book is based on, it took a year and a half before I began
    writing the manuscript.
  • I own a condo in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where one of my characters in the book lives.
  • The ranch setting in Santa Clarita, California is owned by my son.
  • One of the characters in the book is very much like me.

    About Fateful Connections

    Fateful Connections tells the story of four people brought together by the tragic events of 9/11 in the United States. These four individuals were attending a conference in Seattle, Washington, and found it nearly impossible to make it back to their homes, which were scattered across the country. They decide to rent a car and drive together, as they cannot get any flights home. As rental cars are also impossible to come upon, they find a friend who has access to a repossessed car, which he is willing to rent out. Unbeknownst to the friends, the rightful owner of the car wants his car back, and as they find out, hidden inside the car are drugs and guns. What ensues is a dangerous journey which impacts the four friends’ lives forever. The story follows them on their harrowing journey home, then one and two years later as they meet up for an annual reunion. 

    The strengths of this story are the easy-to-read narrative and compelling plot. The author introduces four intriguing main characters, as well as a number of antagonists, who hunt down the friends and engage in dangerous and illegal plans to not only recapture their guns and drugs, but also kill the friends so there are no witnesses to their illegal activities. The reader is instantly drawn into the storyline, and moves along with the characters as they experience fear, joy, love, and relief. The plot is compelling, and the reader cannot help but become invested in the lives of these four main characters.
