Born in 1971, I am a third-generation native Arizonan. My grandfather’s family arrived here from Missouri in 1912, just after Arizona became a state. Thanks to his stories and those of my other family members, I know how Arizona used to be and how it is today.
After years of working as an editor and a writer for local companies, I began my wished-for career as a novelist in 2009. I have completed four books so far. My fourth book, An Unassigned Life, will be published by Inknbeans Press in February 2011.

While this wasn't exactly a classic tale, it was entertaining. The writing was clear and easy to read, with the exception of the ending. I thought the president was the president of the company, not the U.S.
The main character wasn't particularly sympathetic. The whole story would have been greatly improved if I'd cared in the least about Bob.
*NOTE: I actually purchased this book on Amazon.com originally. You will find the same review at that site.
This book is surprisingly funny for such a potentially explosive topic. As someone who has, in fact, read the Bible -- I didn't even skip the "begats" -- I can also say that Wendy Bertsch does a great job of telling the women's sides of the story without changing anything that's actually in the Biblical text. I particularly liked Rahab's rational decision to help the Israelites.
As I listened to rather than read the text on my Kindle, I didn't note many editing errors, though I did spot one or two punctuational problems as the pages flashed by. All in all, I would recommend this for anyone with a good sense of humor -- regardless of his or her religious affiliation.
I admit to being biased -- I am included in this anthology.
However, twenty other talented authors are also found in this unique book. I highly recommend that you give them a few minutes of your time. You may find your new favorite writer within this volume.
