Welcome to my Smashwords author page.
Thanks for visiting!!
I just released my latest novel, A Town Called Babylon, in June 2017.
Set in fictitious Babylon, the story revolves around Philly Love, a neurosurgeon who steadfastly refuses to embrace as truth the pronouncements of the Intellectual Council, and Browning Dillon, the worship pastor of Babylon Community Church who has serious reservations about his congregation's worldview. The pair find themselves in the crosshairs of Babylon's most powerful people because of their unwillingness to shed their beliefs and adopt those approved by society.
Unlike other dystopian books that travel well-worn ground focused on tyrannical governments, my novel provides a glimpse into the alarming world of societal tyranny. Drawing on biblical prophecy and burgeoning social trends, the novel paints a detailed portrait of what tomorrow will look like when society - working in concert with powerful institutions such as corporations, academia, and the media - threatens and attacks truth, liberty, and religious freedom. The picture that emerges is at once frightening and hopeful, cautionary and insightful.
It is a book that sounds the alarm on the dangerous path we are traveling down as a society and offers an urgent wake-up call against the cacophony of voices that seek to eliminate freedom of speech, religion, and thought. To say it will change the way you view the world and listen to the news is no overstatement.
It is available in paperback on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble. And don't forget to recommend it to a friend and post a review on your favorite book review website.
For those interested, let me share a little about my background. I took a circuitous path to writing.
Raised in Montana, I moved to West Germany a couple months following my high school graduation. I lived there for two years before returning to the States to attend The College of William and Mary in Virginia. After receiving my MBA from the University of Rochester I worked in corporate finance for a dozen years before retiring to focus full-time on writing.
I live with my wife and cat in the Midwest where I love to hike and photograph wildlife. To learn more about me and my books, go to www.roderickcyr.com.
Finally, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to drop me a note.
And thanks for your support. It's critical for independent authors like me.
