Rick Stiller just published his latest political novel, Nellis Gray - Rude and cranky Nellis Gray has a locked steel gate, a pack of scruffy dogs, Chester the pet pig, and every intention of spending his remaining years working his small farm in seclusion. He shuns social contact, until desperate young sisters draw him out of isolation to craft redemption from ruin, for their eccentric family, and save the town from a confederacy of Klansmen, sadistic enforcers for a shady political campaign financed by a big-tent preacher with a global parish and secrets to hide.
Nellis Gray is the first novel in a trilogy that explores bigotry and racism, a brewing revolt by those rendered destitute and helpless through the revocation of our rights, liberties, hopes, and dreams by a tyrant and a fanatical fraternity of tycoons who acquired the presidency as the ultimate investment. Watch for the publication of SunnyBreeze and Storytime.
