✔︎ AMAZON KINDLE — Featured Author Review — Rolland Love “Love’s writing transfigures his Ozark Mountains stories into a series of fantastic tales Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer could have only dreamed of.”
“To understand Overland Park writer Rolland Love, think MARK TWAIN.” Nick Kowalczyk, The Kansas City Star.
“Rolland, your writing reminds me of reading the Hardy Boy adventures and Mark Twain when I was younger. You are able to create vivid mind pictures. I’ve read most all of Stephen King’s books and he does that for me. Keep writing great stories.” Larry Bodinson, PI
“Rolland Love writers in the Mark Twain vein. Excellent storyteller who does not rely on graphic language or sex to cover up a weak story line. His stories are a fast-paced page-flipper of a read.” Molly Martin, Scribes World
INTRODUCTION TO OZARK MOUNTAINS DARK SIDE ♨
An Excerpt form ”DEATH BY LIGHTNING”:
“I stared down at the shiny black casket as though a hypnotic trance had closed the windows to my soul and left me living inside my mind. I looked up from the open grave as Reverend Thompson tossed a handful of dirt into the October wind and began to pray.
“Raymond was a God-fearing man called early by his Maker…”
Overcome, I turned away from the family burial site and ran down the hill past our white, farmhouse, past my father’s 1939 Chevy pickup and on to the horse barn. Panic took control of my reasoning.”
An Excerpt from “THE SPARROW MAN”:
“The Sparrow Man” is a work of fiction based on a true-life story about a man who lives in a rural area in the upper Mid-West who has a hatred for sparrows. A little know fact is that in many towns worldwide there are people like Rufus, the Sparrow Man, a bully, who kills sparrows and sometimes starlings on a regular basis. If you don’t believe this happens on a broad scale Google “I hate sparrows.” It’s shocking the number of web pages that will appear.”
An Excerpt from “THE TIME I ALMOST DROWN”
”As I shot up to the surface I must have looked like a wounded animal to the people on the bank. I was gasping for air with my arms, legs and back scraped and bleeding. My survival generated the most applause I had ever gotten in my life except when I out ran a charging bull in the hay field and slithered though a fence before he gored me into the ground.”
