If you're looking for QUIRKY INSPIRATIONAL FICTION,
you've come to the right place. Come on in.
You may not realize how important reviews are to authors, but that's why I dedicate a good portion of my home page to talking about some of the reviews my books have received. I recently published a blog post on the subject, and I hope many of you will read it here.


Rosa No-Name has nine reviews now, with an average 4.9 out of five stars. Here's the most recent one:

  • "This well-written story, set in the present, follows Rosa, a young woman from a remote, primitive village in Mexico, from the ages of 16 to 29. At first, I did not like the main character - Rosa seems as manipulative and prideful as the people who treat her badly. But as the book went on, I began to sympathize and understand her more, and ended up desperately hoping for a happy ending for her. So many tragic things happen to Rosa, but the book manages to avoid being depressing because several beautiful, caring characters balance out the evil. The gospel is not introduced until near the end, but there are hints of the Holy Spirit drawing Rosa throughout the book. This is not a light read, but if you want something that sticks to your ribs, I highly recommend it."

Peggy Phifer posted my article about how Rosa No-Name came to be. Read it here.


Not every book is for every reader. But The Devil and Pastor Gus has fifty reviews on Amazon now—number fifty-one has disappeared—and most of them are really nice; it has a 4.1 star average rating. Here are some of the most recent ones.

  • "A good 'fun read'—enjoyable yet made some good points on the bargains we try to make to advance our desires."

  • "I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are so real I felt like I knew them by the time I had finished. In particular, I felt for Pastor Gus in many ways. He is such a likeable character.

    "I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book. It is so well-written and there are enough twists to keep the reader guessing."

  • "Interesting to see how the devil gets into hearts and lives and humans try to play both sides. Pastor Gus was a fun character."


I hope you enjoy your visit and come again soon.

Best regards,
Roger
