Juan Arias is a gifted fifth grader with a passion for photography. His goal is to someday be a staff photographer for National Geographic magazine, but he has given up on his dream. Now an adult, he is an unfulfilled computer programmer.

When Juan dresses up as the Easter Bunny for his nephew’s party, he winds up having a life-altering accident and becomes a freak, a medical marvel. As he tries to pick up the pieces of his shattered life, Juan uncovers evidence that can help convict a suspected murderer hellbent on unleashing the most addictive drug known to man.

Still battling the side effects of his accident, how can Juan prevent a murder and help catch the lunatic. When everything is stacked against you, and life unravels, how can you hope to survive? How can the very worst day of your life be the best day for your eternal soul?

Me: How do you like my new book cover, EB?

EB: Hmmm, well, it’s much better than that crappy cover you had before. I guess it doesn’t stink anymore.

Me: Wow, EB that means a lot to me, especially coming from you.

EB: Yeah well, it only took you two years to listen to my advice.

Me: Is there anything about this cover you don’t like?

EB: Actually, the guy’s nose looks like it was drawn by a four-year-old.

Me: It’s not supposed to be a realistic nose.

EB: Well, you got that right. Did a four-year-old do this new cover of yours?

Me: No. I thought you liked it.

EB: I’m liking it less and less now.

Me: I don’t understand. Why?

EB: It’s just…

Me: It’s just what?

EB: It’s just that it reminds me of a really bad nightmare I had.

Me: What happened in your nightmare?

EB: It was too horrible for words, I don’t think I can talk about it.

Me: Go ahead. Sometimes it helps to tell your nightmare to someone. Then it doesn’t seem so bad.

EB: I don’t know.

Me: Come on, buddy. We’ve been friends for a long time. Tell me about your dream.

EB: OK, but let me get a fresh carrot first. I think I’m going to need it.

Me: OK, so what happened in your nightmare?

EB: I was in this tiny booth. It had curtains on three sides and there was a piece of paper.

Me: What was on the paper?

EB: It had four words on it and I started to tremble. Then my trembling turned into uncontrollable shaking. I could not breathe. I woke up screaming, soaking wet from sweating.

Me: Wow, EB, that’s terrible. What were the four words on the piece of paper? What did it say to make you have such a horrible panic attack.

EB: There were four words and two little circles. There was one little circle in front of a pair of words.

Me: Sounds strange, EB. What did they say?

EB: The first little circle was followed by the words Hillary Clinton. The second little circle was followed by the words Donald Trump.

Me: If it’s of any consolation EB, I’ve had a similar nightmare.

EB: Does this mean it’s the end of the world?

Me: I’m afraid it’s worse than that, EB.

EB: What can be worse than the end of the world.

Me: Having to listen to political coverage on every channel of the questionably civilized world.

EB: Is “questionably” a real word.

Me: Who cares EB. It’s the end of the world.

EB: Here, have a carrot it will take the edge off the apocalypse.

Rabbit’s Tale Wins 2015 Global Ebook Award

A_Rabbit's_Tale_EbookFrontCover72DPIGold

A Rabbit’s Tale An Easter Story is the Gold Medal Winner of the 2015 Global Ebook Awards in the category of Christian fiction. Here’s the new cover with the official seal. Below is a review written by John Howard Prin. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BEIQYPC

5.0 out of 5 stars Hippity-Hop, This Tale is Over the Top
Review by John Howard Prin – Verified Purchase

Open this book and you are in for an egg-citing treat. Settle back as you turn the pages of this superb story and rest easy knowing you’re in for a jubilee of enjoyment.

A Rabbit’s Tale offers a wonderfully funny, and at times laugh-out-loud hilarious, story of ingenious twists and turns. The author has assembled a rich cast of characters, sympathetically drawn in the case of hero Juan Arias and dastardly villainous as personified by Monty McPride, who messes things up in grand fashion. The array of humanity in these pages spans the spectrum of likeable to detestable.

The storyline is a roller-coaster ride of humorous flashes of comedy and touching moments of tender pathos. Its many twists and surprises kept me guessing about how seemingly unrelated events would weave together, but Ruiz proved himself to be a gifted storyteller.

I especially enjoyed the story’s outrageous central premise, a leap of fantasy based on a stupendous “what-if.” Juan’s trials and tribulations are those of an everyman, an ordinary and decent fellow who dresses up as the Easter Bunny for a kids’ party and has a medical emergency which catapults the antics into high gear.

In keeping with the Easter themes of death by crucifixion and miraculous resurrection, the author presents episodes in Juan’s life when his plight parallels that of his hero Jesus — times when everything turns dark and bleak, but then by some unexpected plot twist or quirk of character the divine light of hope shines brightly and saves the day.

Highly creative, wildly imaginative, tremendously enjoyable — this tall tale has the makings of a classic.

Juan’s life is about to change, unfortunately, not for the better. “This can’t be my life!” If you’ve ever felt trapped in a life that you wish had turned out differently, or wondered, “Where is God?” this suspense-filled Christian fantasy will captivate you. This is the story of two men whose paths cross briefly during their childhood, then again during adulthood. Juan does his best to lead a normal life, after a freakishly bizarre accident. While trying to establish some kind of normalcy and dealing with the strange side effects, he finds himself caught up in a web of suspense and danger as he tries to help a friend bring an evil, cunning, and power hungry ego-maniac to justice. In the process, Juan receives a very special gift.

Free Will? What if It’s Not Yours?

What if you discovered that your free will was a deception, a lie? Everything that you enjoyed, all that you thought, everything that made you unique and genuinely you, was really someone else? What if your discovery made you the target of a relentless and persistent evil, an evil so deep and encompassing that there was no place where you could hide? It wants you dead.

Persistent Evil Cover

It’s the story of a demonic world that systematically high jacks the souls of the unsuspecting. A creepy and disturbing story which begs the question, “Where the hell is God?” This story begins where A Rabbit Tale An Easter Story ends.

Look for Persistent Evil on Amazon 2014.
