As a Christian Author, Becky Dewitt displays in this series a spell binding way to remember that Jesus is still on the throne. The twist and turns that each character displays, takes you on each journey with them. When you think you have figured out what may happen next, you are mistaken, because you are taken in a new direction that enthralls your sense of suspense, and you are left saying “Nooo!! it did not go the way I was thinking.” When I finished each book, I was ready for more intrigue and suspense. Even with the last book, I am ready for another journey into the lives of each of the characters. Becky Dewitt is an awesome writer who leaves you wanting more of the Intrigue and mystery of her books.

Peek into the The Contempt Series including sequels Reasons and Sabotage
Chapter Excerpt from CONTEMPT
Just like years before, the limo was running late. She kept pacing and looked at her watch. She knew that she had to make it to the airport on time. This was one time that she could not afford to be late for a flight. Her life depended on it. She stood at the door with her eyes closed and pleading on the inside, ‘please God let them be on time, I can’t be late for this one.’ She heard the car in the driveway and immediately opened the door to run out. For one instance, she turned to look back and continued to run.
This time she was leaving it all. The money, the wealth, the position and the husband, all of it she just had to have. It was over. Arianna knew that if she did not make this move to step through the open door. She would be left behind to a life that would spiral out of control and take her to places that she could never imagine or even wanted to think about.
The driver opened the door to help her with the luggage, she held up her hand to stop him. She opened the door for herself and threw the luggage on the back seat.
“LAX and quickly,” said Arianna frantically.
“I’m sorry that I am late Ma’am,” replied the driver. “I have never been in this neighborhood before.”
“It’s ok,” said Arianna. “Just get me there at least an hour before the flight takes off. Tell you what; if you can get me there I’ll throw in an extra $250 tip.”
“Yes Ma’am,” said the driver. He was going to make that money today he thought to himself.
Speeding down the freeway, she looked out of the window at the skyline of the city. This was it she was never coming back or even thinking about it. She had made a mistake and she just needed to admit it to herself. What was she thinking? She did it, and he was not the right one. She never even did her homework. She took the shortcut. Fast, fly, and easy. Her mother warned her about that. She would always say, “Honey do the research, do the homework and that will tell you what is hidden.” She just looked on the outside, what he had and how good he looked. Never even imagined what his life was all about. Some days she could not even breathe because of the fear.
As soon as she thought about it, that night would enter into her mind. She would relive it over and over. She did not even know how she got there or what happened to cause his anger to explode to that extent. She began to question herself about herself. Sitting in the back seat, she was shaking her head. Not today. Not today. Today is my day of freedom from the past.
When the driver opened the door, and she put her feet on the ground, she felt something on the inside. She did not understand, but she felt something and it was not fear. Entering into the terminal, passing through the security checkpoint and arriving at the gate seemed like a whirlwind. It all happened so fast. As soon as she walked to the gate, they were calling for seating. She continued walking down the walkway. It all seemed like a stroll into the future. He would never see her again, ever.
Chapter Excerpt from REASONS
It had been a couple of years since Takeshi received Tarou’s letter informing him that the child that he had with Arianna was alive. Tarou’s cruel intention had taken its toll on Takeshi and his ability to function in the business. He thought that Tristan and Mahmood should run everything even though they were not well informed on the west coast operations. Noburu was well aware of everything and was proactive by sending reinforcement to surround Takeshi. He was still functioning but not at his optimum.
Takeshi needed and wanted to see his daughter, but he was fearful. His imagination ran all over the place. But basically, he wondered how she was alive all these years and kept hidden. There was only one person who could answer everything that he wanted to know truthfully and that was Noburu. He knew that his trust level would be limited because of the recent shock. He wanted to go home and see for himself, but when he found out it was too much too soon. Now, he was ready to face whatever came. It was time to move. The first thing would be to call Noburu and set up a meeting. Suddenly, his phone was ringing. Looking at the caller ID, it was Noburu. Was fate already moving?
Chapter Excerpt from SABOTAGE
Tristan sat in his office looking out over the skyline taking time to ponder about some things that he had on his mind. Looking out over the skyline was one of his favorite things to do because it gave him a chance to think about things from an elevated perspective. He always needed to think big and higher than where he was. The skyline was his canvas to paint his thoughts.
He had been watching the family for the past seven years and saw that there was a possibility that he could let go. It had not been easy to establish the businesses turning them into a conglomerate. Years of profit from Kazukasai Technology had allowed him to make many moves in different markets and form the company, KJC Inc.
KJC was in real estate, mineral mining, publishing, the airline industry and even venture capital. All of their enterprises were global. Tristan had stretched and legitimized the technology company from their humble beginnings. It was time to get out and rest so that their heirs, Taiji, Tai and Sera could take over. He decided to call everyone in for a family discussion to outline the next decade of the business.

BPM: Introduce us to your most recent work. Available on Nook and Kindle?
The Contempt Series including sequels Reasons and Sabotage, is a maze of mystery with twists and turns that will keep the readers on the edge. The character connections involve murder, suicide, deception, deliverance and salvation. The series is filled with the questions who, what, when, where and how. All three are available on Kindle in English and now Spanish.
BPM: Can you share with us something about the book that isn’t in the blurb?
The intrigue about the sibling connections will keep the readers in suspense for the shocking surprise. Reading Contempt and Reasons, one will assume that everything has been revealed, but there is an underlying secret that comes from the past.
BPM: Give us some insight into your main characters or speakers. What makes each one so special?
The main character, Arianna, triumphs over the years despite her beginning. A destructive lifestyle comprised of lost love, depression, suicidal thoughts, redemption, and a new life that is beyond what she could ever imagine. Trusting in God leads to healing and reconciliation to someone she lost. Tristan, the handsome hunk that every woman dreams of. He appears to have it all, but there are areas of lack. His lifestyle is empty, but when confronted with the possibility of normalcy, it escapes his grasp because of the past. Eventually he finds solace in God, which is hard to believe because of his demeanor.
BPM: Where do your book ideas come from? Are your books plot-driven or character-driven?
My inspiration for writing comes in the form of a thought from God. As I began to work on the Contempt series, I did not know from day to day what would be written. Initially I was given the main characters and the blueprint of the plot, but there was an excitement in the daily writing of the many twists in the maze. I had no idea that there would be a second or third book. The readers pressed for answers to many questions that they had which led to additional story lines to be developed.
BPM: Tell us a little about your creative process. Do you use a computer or write out the story by hand?
My creative process varies according to the genre for which I am writing. As an inspirational author,m I generally write early in the morning and in longhand. The process for writing novels is not dependent upon a particular time of day, but just sitting at the computer typing.
BPM: Do you write multiple books for a series? Do you have any new series planned?
I have written a children's series titled Destiny's Closet, which is the adventure of children find and talking to Jesus in a that they have never imagined. The experience continues in Circle of Friends and The Wonder School. Currently, a sequel to Stolen Property is in progress. Stolen Property is an adventure into the supernatural from a Christian perspective.
BPM: What advice would you give aspiring writers that would help them finish a project when so many ideas are running together?
It is important to have a strategy if you are working on several projects simultaneously. Organize the day to determine what project to work on and availability. Set completion goals such as daily chapters, final editing and even submission for publication. Dates will assist in being focused forward.
BPM: How has writing impacted your life?
One of the greatest joys is when the reader not only sees what you see, but brings the extra. It is like they become a co-author by adding their interpretation of the story. I read a quote once that 'books are like missionaries, they work while you sleep.' As a Christian author those words really impacted me to stay focused to complete my assignments.
