About Roy Ratzlaff

Roy has a deep grasp of the human condition and the dynamics that pull on us all. He has mesmerized audiences large and small with his oral story telling for years before committing to writing a very complicated one in “Freeboard”.

Most at home on the cliffs or forest, his near death experiences and adventures have produced a seasoned voice. Considered the philosopher in the family, he lives in the world of meaning.

Roy and his wife Patty lived a long time in Salem, Oregon before moving to the Puget Sound to remain involved with their amazing offspring and equally amazing spouses.

Roy is convinced Kona coffee is best drunk in Kona, Hawaii, an opinion not disputed by his faithful German Shepherd.

I became involved with each character and hade my own vision what each one looked like. It was very interesting to see what and how each of them turned out. Some times I was wondering if they had common sense to over come some of their flaws, but they did.
This is a very well written book and if you like adventure, the Author
"Roy Ratzlaff" will take you there.

I was captivated by "Freeboard"! The author's research into the different aspects of the story was very evident by the details that helped make the reading so interesting. The description of the barge was so complete that it allowed me to picture it in my mind as if I was actually there. The despair of each character and how they dealt with their own set of circumstances was intriguing. I highly recommend "Freeboard" to anyone who enjoys a good read!

'Freeboard' is a creative and exciting story. We are not normally fiction readers, but this book entertained and captivated us from start to finish. Originally we were reading a chapter a night, but now we're hooked and can't put it down! We really enjoy the unique ideas and twists in the plot, the exploration of each character's situation and personality, and the insights about life that come up along the way. Though the book is self-published, it is written with professional ease and the style of a seasoned writer.

What a fantastic book! Great action, suspense, pacing, and complex characters kept me reading all the way through to the last page. I actually cried during one part. Several scenes I read through so fast because I was rooting for our heroes as they were under attack. This novel combines all the great elements of fiction into a really fun reading experience - and what you get is an invitation to think more deeply about life, love, and why.
