Flirtin with Jesus

Flirtin' with Jesus is walk through the dark shadows of life tracing one man's struggle to emerge into the light.

Flirtin’ with Jesus is the first book of The Ascension Trilogy.  Conrad LaGrone, a middle aged divorcé, is one step from homelessness.  Plagued by a life of bad choices, he meets the dynamic and loving Bonnie Adair who holds out a ray of hope to him, that he might set his life on the right path.  However, Detective Dietzel, a dirty cop, Barry Brantley, a sinister crime boss, and the Reverend Isaiah “Bubba” Brizelle, a dubious evangelical preacher, have designs to derail Conrad from obtaining his new lease on life.

The story is peppered with sex and violence, as well as “sacred” institutions fraught with corruption, which the reader may find unsettling, though equally amusing.  The reader is riveted to the character of Conrad LaGrone, at times commiserating with his failings, and at other times, cheering him on to success.

Not only did the mass of this raging bull intimidate Bob into total submission, but also something else struck absolute fear into him. Conrad pressed his pistol under his chin, and then threw his prey onto the hood of his car and immediately placed the toy handcuffs onto Bob's wrists.

Professional Reviews

John Williamson, Throttle Magazine
Flirtin' with Jesus traces one man's journey to self-knowledge through the often seamy underside of Richmond and environs. It's not for the faint-hearted. Loaded with graphic and colorful scenes, chock-full of bizarre characters with strange, and possibly dangerous obsessions, this novel is a roller-coaster ride of the imagination. Think David Lynch crossed with P.T. Barnum-- it's wild!

Ames Arnold, freelance writer, Tampa Tribune, Style Weekly, Virginia Living
"With a full deck of plot twists and seedy characters living under a curse of Old Testament revenge, Flirtin' with Jesus grabs a reader's attention with its intensity."
