More About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ron Rhody was born and grew up in Frankfort, a small town nestled in a bend of a river in the heart of Kentucky's lush Bluegrass country and the state's capital city.
He attended Georgetown College then transferred to the University of Kentucky, intending to enter law school, but became attracted to journalism instead.
Rhody has been a reporter, a sportswriter, a broadcast newsman, and covered the Kentucky legislature before moving on to a career as a corporate public relations executive in New York and San Francisco, and later as consultant to Fortune 500 companies on communications and public relations issues.
He was Executive Vice President, Corporate Communications and External Affairs for Bank of America Corporation during one of its most demanding decades as the bank skirted bankruptcy, fended off a hostile takeover attempt, and rose again to the top ranks of international finance.
Earlier he had been Corporate Vice President, Public Relations and Advertising, for Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corporation, directing the communication strategies for the intense marketing battles and international expansions and downsizings that were endemic to the world aluminum industry.
He is a fellow of the Public Relations Society of America and a member of the Arthur W. Page Society Hall of Fame. He received the Ferguson Award of The Public Relations Society of America for outstanding contributions to public relations education. He is past chairman the Public Relations Seminar and founding chairman of the San Francisco Academy.
Rhody is the chief executive of the rhody consultancy, a pro-bono public relations and communications firm that works with not-for-profits and volunteer organizations.
He is the author of The CEO's Playbook: Managing the Outside Forces that Shape Success, Wordsmithing: The Art and Craft of Writing for Public Relations with Dr. Carol Ann Hackley of the University of Pacific, The Soccer Book: A Spectators Guide, and THEO'S STORY, his first work of fiction, published in 2009. Reader interest in Theo and his story sparked THEO & THE MOUTHFUL OF ASHES which was released in November of 2011, followed by WHEN THEO CAME HOME, published in October of 2013 and completing the THEO TRILOGY. He is now at work on a new novel which is expected to be ready by the fall of 2015.
Rhody and his wife Patsy now make their home in Pinehurst, N.C.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Rhody's novel, THEO & The Mouthful of Ashes, is a captivating novel on several levels. The book, set in the 1950s does a masterful job of capturing the culture, feel, and attitudes of middle-America during those memorable times. It also weaves a mystery that will challenge the most ardent mystery reader's ability to solve. And, the novel is set in the very-real Frankfort, Kentucky's capitol, and will appeal to readers who are familiar with the quaint, historic city that's the seat of Kentucky's government. If you want to experience a great mystery with memorable characters and a story you will long remember,I would highly recommend THEO & The Mouthful of Ashes. You won't regret it.

THEO & A Mouthful of Ashes is a mystery/thriller, but much more. If close to my age you have memories of the 1950s, making this something of a nostalgic read. If you came along a bit later, substitute historical. Either way, Ron Rhody is a son of Kentucky who was there back in the day. As the old saying goes, "if you trust the teller, you'll trust the tale." You can trust Ron Rhody to seamlessly weave dire deeds and mayhem through state politics, journalism and aristocracy. There's also a band of nomadic Gypsies in the mix, and more than a few other surprises. Oh, and of course there's the Kentucky Derby. At its heart, this is a murder mystery with a bizarre and gruesome signature at the scene of the crime. As the characters come to life the reader will begin to feel there's some sense to it all, and then maybe wonder if there really is. As you turn the pages, you might want to consider enjoying a glass of bourbon over one or two ice cubes, with a bit of water if you must. It's a Kentucky tradition.

Having grown up in Frankfort I was able to picture it all. Ron Rhody captured the essence of the town while weaving a great story into his pages. I couldn't wait to see what "really" happened.

This prequel to "Theo's Story" brings the reader to a deeper understanding of Theo, and his path through the fields of journalism, small-town politics, and colorful Kentucky locals. Frankfort and the Bluegrass state themselves are interwoven as characters in this story. If you have any interest in the South and its own multi-faceted personality, you will find this a wonderful read.
