More About the Author

I was born in Canada and remember as a small boy crawling in my snow-fort. I closed my eyes, and when I tried to open them, they were frozen shut. I didn't panic, but wiped away the ice crystals, unglued my eyes and kept on building my tunnel. Those were great days! I moved to Central California before seventh grade and couldn't believe I lived in a land where oranges grew on trees and you could pick grapes from the vine.

I used to wonder what I wanted to do with my life, what kind of work specifically. I was miserable not knowing and bordering on desperate. Then one day a friend gave me his typewriter. I began working on a novel. A different person told me it was much easier on a computer, so I bought one and began getting up at 4:30 A.M. each morning before work, writing for three hours. My eyes were unglued once again as the pang of misery left my gut. I knew exactly what I wanted to do: write. So now that's what I do, I write, and write, and write, and I love it.

I just finished this book, and on the way to download #2! The author made the story real, and brought up many points I had never thought of before. The reality of how huge a task Noah and his family took on never hit home until reading this novel. I have no idea how long the book would be on paper, but I was kept busy for quite some time, so I would think it would be a large novel.
I was caught up from begining to end. I am not sure when I have enjoyed a book more. I would absolutely recommend to friends. Vaughn Harper put in details that make you truly in awe of the situation. He brings to light things I never had thought of before in all the years of Bible stories.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

This is a great book! I've heard the story of the Noah and the Flood many times in my life. But it's usually the same truncated story about an old man building a big boat, that somehow gets filled with animals. This novel brings the characters of the Bible to life! It explains how the ark was built, the immense scale of size and time of the ark, and it explains how the ark functioned. More than that, it gives personality to all the characters of the story. To my knowledge, it keeps everything we know about Noah and the Flood consistent with biblical doctrine, but then fills in the gaps with a riveting story. Noah was my favorite character. I've never seen him described like he was in this book (strong, loyal to Jehova, defiant in the face of overwhelming enemies, courageous beyong compare). I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

I enjoyed the story "People of the Ark" and right away started reading "People of the Flood", Books 1 and 2, in the four-book series. Vaughn Heppner is an imaginative storyteller, and I look forward to reading more from him; probably "Star Soldier" next.

I'll warn you: Heppner's books are full-sized novels (an amazing deal for the price!) and once you start one you'll continue the series, as the active writing creates a story that clips along and keeps you reading.

100X better than expected when I started reading it, it builds up slowly - each novel may be self contained but one doesn't really grasp the entire message of the series until the end. I believe the series could be appreciated by anyone w/ an open mind - surprised it isn't already a classic of some kind.

Loved this whole series. It builds on some of the most intriguing little verses in Genesis and creates a huge world with well-crafted characters, without violating the basic overall Genesis narrative. Some of the elements brought into the narrative are fascinating: pre-flood civilizations, post-flood ecology, development of mesopotamian religions, overlapping of the seen and the unseen and the occult, origin of dragons, etc. I am turning into a definite Vaughn Heppner fan.

I have never written a review but felt compelled. What a great series, excellent research and fantastic author. It speaks to you on many levels and I find it fascinating how the author tied in so many events and made the characters real people.

Once I read book 1 I was hooked and stayed awake at nights finishing the series. The only thing I feel bad about is how cheap it was! I felt like I should have paid more for so much entertainment and introspection.

C.S Lewis once said that the old pagan myths and legends of our ancestors had shadows of the truth in them. The author, Vaughn Heppner, has woven the truth of the Bible with the partial truths of mankind's ancient legends to come up with great story that still stays true to the original Genesis account. The Biblical rendering of mankind's origins is a great read but it leaves us desiring more details. Christians can wait until they get to heaven to ask God for the details but Heppner uses his gifted imagination to speculate on the background information. Did you ever wonder what Noah's wife was called, or the names of his sons' wives? What were they like as people? What kind of father was Noah and what kind of relationship did he have with his sons? Why did Noah curse Ham's son Canaan and what was the full meaning of this curse? How were the early people groups formed, and why were they so quick to war against one another and fall away from the faith of their ancestor Noah?

I have read all the books of this series and can't wait for another series. The author has certainly done his research on the book of Genesis as well as some early Jewish commentaries and the early myths of our ancestors. Heppner has taken the great story mankind's beginnings out of the old dry commentaries of the theological seminaries and turned it into an exciting drama that helps regular people arrive at a fuller understanding of how Jehovah worked in the lives of our distant ancestors, and still does today. It looks like Mr. Heppner has more work to do. I look forward to seeing more of his books soon.

This, although interesting wasn't realistic at all. First, they are from the Middle East, therefore did not speak 1500's British English at all. There were no, thee's and thou's. Not that it was littered with it but it should NEVER have been put in.

He didn't do his homework on ancient Hebrew culture at all. He knew enough to refer to the raven as "unclean" yet had Noah roasting a hog. IF he studied the culture he would have known that "all food" meant all CLEAN food. "All Food" meant clean food, food clean enough to be sacrificed would be clean enough to consider a food source. If YHVH/God set "you" before animals and said, this is food for you ... would you eat your cat or your dog? NO, because they aren't FOOD. Neither were the ancient garbage disposals.
He had them using methods to make weapons that hadn't been invented yet, and wearing Renaissance era clothing. They didn't wear clothing that hadn't been invented yet. Also, he wastes too many words/pages talking about how to make something such as smelting or forging. Taking bunny trails talking about the animals. It was as if he was trying too hard to convince his readers that it really did happen. Or needed filler for the story.
He didn't get his information from the scriptures about how the animals were brought to the ark OR the fact that it wasn't two of every animal on the planet. He took YHVH/God out of the equation while on the ark concerning the animals. God tells Noah to build an Ark, brings the animals into the Ark, shuts the ark door, but doesn't know how to keep the animals calm during the journey? Wow, just WOW.
Then there's the praying ...
