Hell's Father

Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Jesus preached Love. Jesus never preached Hell. He never threatened fire and brimstone. No, it would appear that the Hell we all have come to know and love never crossed His mind. Our Hell, the one we’re headed for (if unlucky) or will escape (if lucky) is a later invention, and the inventor has a name: Tertullian. More

About Rowan Wolf

I was born Ulf Ronnquist one snowy night in late October, in one of those northern Swedish towns that are little more than a clearing in the forest.

Many years later, once I begun to publish my stories, I was casting about for a good pen name. This is how I came up with Rowan Wolf: Ulf is actually an old spelling of the Swedish word Ulv, which in turn is an old word for Varg which means Wolf. Ronnquist, in turn, means "branch of Rowan Tree." So I flipped them and got Rowan Wolf, a name I then used for many years.

Once I got my U.S. Citizenship (2002) I decided to use my legal U.S. name, Ulf Wolf, as my pen name as well. Recently, however, I moved back to Rowan Wolf, my initial love as names go, to go along with my site: RowanSongs.com.

I have told lies all my life. Initially just to vent my overactive imagination, or to profess innocence (while guilty). A little later I channeled this creative drive into stories. Initially, I wrote them in Swedish, but for the last thirty or so years in English.

To date I have written seven novels, five novellas and forty odd short stories, along with songs and poems.

Review by: Vann Turner on July 7, 2018 :
Hell's Father is a delightful find! I just stumbled upon this short read by chance and it’s made my afternoon a sheer joy. Half an hour ago I was guffawing out loud. Now spastic chuckles are still gripping me.

What an assemblage of characters--Tertullian, Satan, Borges, Shaw! How adroit is the handling of them! How humorous the quirky details! Mark Twain would be proud to call you son.

An interesting work. I had heard of Tertullian but was not aware of him in this context.
