Author Discusses “The Craft of the Novelist”
at the Edmond Library

By day, Ray Roush is an attorney. After hours, he’s novelist r. r. bryan.  In both guises he will be at the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, on Saturday, April 10, from 2:00-3:00p.m. to talk about his novel “All the Angels and Saints.”  His presentation is entitled “The Craft of the Novelist.” 

“We’re looking forward to hearing what Mr. Roush has to say,” said librarian Ronna Davis.  “His book was published by the company owned by Oklahoma novelist William Bernhardt, and it received some great reviews at Amazon.com.”

One reader described the novel this way:  “This beloved book touched my heart and soul in a way few books can ever do,” and another said of it, “It’s one of those books that you hate to finish!”

“All the Angels and Saints”  tells the story of a man whose daughter, a nun, is killed while serving her religion on a mission to Guatemala.  His quest to find accountability within the church challenges his own faith and creates tension within his 28-year marriage.  In addition to the human story, the book is a taut legal thriller.
