‘Vengeance Of An Evil Man’ by Robert D. Turvil

Today I’d like to introduce you to Robert D Turvil. Robert writes thriller and fantasy novels, and short stories. Here’s a little about him and one of his books, ‘Vengeance Of An Evil Man’.

“Robert writes from his home in southern England where he raised three sons with his wife, who reads all his words before they reach the shelves and Kindles.”

Robert’s thriller ‘Vengeance of an Evil Man’ is a story of intrigue and manipulation. He feels that reading should be a roller-coaster ride – but with a blindfold so you can’t see what’s coming.”



“His book ‘The Devil’s Charity’ is a unique fantasy that features a man in crisis and ends with a bite. But he also writes short stories. His collection entitled ‘7½ Short Stories You’ll Want to Read’ is a robust assortment of tales involving crime, betrayal, murder and love.” — from Robert’s website

‘Redemption’s Whisper’ by Kathleen Friesen

I’d like you to meet Kathleen Friesen, author of several Christian Romance novels. Here’s a little about Kathleen and her book — ‘Redemption’s Whisper’ by Kathleen Friesen.

“Kathleen Friesen writes contemporary stories of faith that overcomes tough trials and deep heartaches. Her desire is for her readers to see themselves in the characters of her stories, and to realize that Jesus Christ is the true hero.

When not writing, she enjoys reading sweet romances and suspense novels, exploring new trails, kayaking with her hubby (on calm waters only!), and spoiling their grandkids.”

Faith Overcomes the Past

“Can two troubled souls gain the peace they need—and in the process, find love? Hayley Blankenship is on a flight to Saskatoon. She is desperate to escape her past and believes that Pastor Dave and Lydia Harris may be the only people who can help her. If she doesn’t find a reason to hope, she may give in to the temptation to end it all.

On her flight she meets Trevor Hiebert who is on his way back home. He has just interviewed for his dream job in Toronto, but he is torn because his parents need him at home in Saskatoon and he doesn’t want to let them down.  Everything changes when he meets Haley, an intriguing, gorgeous redhead with dark secrets of her own.” from ‘Redemption’s Whisper’.

‘The Soldier Who Killed A King’ by David Kitz


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see the crucifixion of Jesus first-hand?

An historical account of the crucifixion by a Roman soldier.

“If you’ve heard the story of Passion Week so often it’s become stale, now is the time to rediscover the terrible events leading from Jesus’s humble ride into the city to his crucifixion. The Soldier Who Killed a King will stun you afresh with how completely Christ’s resurrection changed history, one life at a time.” – David Kitz

A stunning story of Holy Week through the eyes of a Roman centurion. Watch the triumphal entry of the donkey-riding king through the eyes of Marcus Longinus, the centurion charged with keeping the streets from erupting into open rebellion. Look behind the scenes at the political plotting of King Herod, known as the scheming Fox for his ruthless shrewdness. Get a front-row seat to the confrontation between the Jewish high priest Caiaphas and the Roman governor Pontius Pilate. Understand as never before the horror of the decision to save a brutal terrorist in order to condemn the peaceful Jew to death”. – DKZ Productions
