Redemption is available on Amazon.
Lee Thomas was no stranger to bullies, nor was he the innocent saint he believed he was. Conflicted by his young life within a torn family, an immense ego, and a relentless desire to surround himself with perfection, he was a young man bound for great things.
When tragedy suddenly derails his life, Lee will be thrust into turmoil. His successful career, beautiful wife, and fast cars will feel the strain when the tables turn and fortune no longer shines. With little help, Lee will learn that his humanity cannot be guided by selfish desires, but instead must follow the instincts he did not know he had. As self absorption and denial give way to responsibility and character, Lee will learn that trust is never a given, and that true love comes in all shapes and sizes.
"I vacillated between wanting the character to die or live. I applaud the author's method of taking the reader on such an emotional roller coaster ride. I kept turning the pages waiting for the next loop.
"This is a story wonderfully told in a manner that gives nothing away and draws on the reader's own secret moments of Heartlessness. We all have them and hope for forgiveness. The author's admission that this story is based on personal experience, makes this novel even more poignant.
"I highly recommend this read. One caveat. The book stays with you after putting it down. Many chapters may leave you in a quandary without knowing why until the end."
— Thomas Detras
Honor is available on Amazon.
When a mysterious woman suddenly enters his life, wounded veteran Brent Edwards is forced to confront his lack of self-esteem and unwarranted shame. With kind words and a gentle touch, his new friend will encourage him to recount the battle that nearly cost him his life, and come to terms with the wounds that drive him to solitude.
As he relives the fateful hour, Brent will find himself forced to wrestle with his demons as he looks for answers in the past—a past that might justify an honor for which he cannot find reason.
Intimidated by the awesome power of feminine splendor, Brent struggles to find meaning in a woman’s affection for a man ravaged by the throes of war and lost in a world of personal torment. Taken by her beauty and torn by her motives, he will soon discover that his is not a solitary pain, and that honor is found where least expected.
"This book was not what I expected. The story is heart breaking, soul searching, and soul baring. It is the truest form of the ultimate love story with the reality of war. Thank you for delivering such an honest journey into the lives of Brent and Erika. I don't think I have read another book out there that has touched me like this."

The Sixth Angel: A Murder Mystery is available on Amazon.
When the body of a woman is found in the mountains of Harney County, Oregon, Sheriff Josh Matthews is drawn from the longest night of his life to investigate. A suspect is quickly located and the case seems cut and dried. But there have been other murders in this sheriff’s county, and they remain unsolved.
Gail Cruz had spent most of her career in the big city. Now time and chance have brought her to the small logging town of Burns, Oregon as a reporter and columnist. When meager backyard stories suddenly give way to a murder investigation, Gail’s intuition is not convinced that the right man is on trial.
Two eyes are better than one. Using her experience and charm Gail must convince Sheriff Matthews that there is more to the case than meets his eyes, and he must revisit nearly two decades of cold trails to find something he had long given up for lost.
“The Sixth Angel will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good mystery well told. Kenneth Scherer has turned Theodore Bohlman’s compelling idea into a page turner featuring an Old West-style sheriff in the contemporary West, a reporter who earns his trust and then his heart, and a plot that will engage you from cover to cover.”
~ Tim Woodward, Idaho newspaper columnist and author
“WOW! The Sixth Angel has all the elements that I love in a great story. Characters that I liked and enjoyed spending time with in a book, a storyline that absolutely grabbed me and held me, and an amazing—and unexpected—conclusion. The authors brilliantly threw surprises throughout the story that kept me guessing. I can’t wait for Hollywood to discover this story and bring it to the big screen. It’s a blockbuster in the waiting!”
~ Dirk Kempthorne, U.S. Senator / Governor
I have been writing since I was a child, and have authored five manuscripts, three of which are published on Amazon: Honor, Redemption, and my latest novel with co-author Theodore Bohlman, The Sixth Angel. With two more in the works, I am always dreaming up fun, engaging stories that tell the tale of often troubled men seeking their place in life. I write clean stories free from foul language, descriptive sex, and zombies! That's right, no zombies.
