Jerry Rogers is a career airman working both in the United States Air Force and in the California Air National Guard, with over 26 years’ experience working in technology supporting legacy and state-of-the-art telecommunication and data-communication systems. He also worked for nearly seven years at two post-production film companies working in Information Technology. One of Jerry’s greatest joys is being able to teach at a small church in Orange County. He’s traveled extensively across the vast county to each of the contiguous 48 states and across the world to both Asia and Europe.
Ever since he was a teenager, Jerry's always had a fascination with Religion and Science Fiction and has always enjoyed writing, starting with writing short stories over the years. He took the next step and wrote a humorous novella called “The Legend of the Salad Traveler.” He later began working on his first novel, the Fallen and the Elect in 2011 developing the concept after months of research, building notes, and jotting down ideas. The story has now blossomed into a full mysterious story blending both religion and a sprinkling of Science Fiction.

Continue to experience the life changing events of Father Hernandez, Sister Justine, Michael Saunders, and Stephen Williams in this sequel to the supernatural mystery novel, “The Fallen and the Elect”. Angels suddenly return, arbitrarily showing up at churches across the world after months of no longer presenting mysterious eulogies at random funerals. See what mysteries they encounter.
A teenager from Africa with the ability to track spirit possessed creatures is aided by a self-exiled religious recluse with the unique ability to read souls. The two are brought together and journey to a mysterious small town in Northern California searching for a daimon that's entered the world causing local havoc. If not successful, the ramifications are greater than both initially realize.
Angels start to appear at random funerals, eulogizing the deceased for 10 years after millions disappeared from across the earth. During one funeral, an angel is the cause of a fatal event investigated by a priest, nun and former seminarian. Their investigation leads to a test of each of their beliefs, and answers to questions they never anticipated.
Book of Hours: The Beguilement of Brother Alphaios
on Oct. 30, 2014
I extremely enjoyed “The Book of Hours: The Beguilement of Brother Alphiaos” for what it didn’t have. The book didn’t have action packed scenes attempting to create the visual of an action movie. It didn’t crazy over the top characters to attempt and add color to the story. It didn’t have a fanciful plot adding plot twists in an attempt to keep the reader guessing. Is there anything wrong with these writing devices, of course not, especially if used correctly. Where this story succeeds is with simple story telling, although a couple of times a bit monotone. In all, this didn't take away from the story, the author was an excellent wordsmith. The characters were down to earth and well developed with realistic human frailties. The story pacing was methodical and deliberate, and at first I thought maybe a little slow, but the more I continued, the deeper it developed. It was cool to see the main character you would think to be out of his element, as the story progressed, the more you see he was very well in control of everything going on around him, but realizing there were many events he had no control over. I couldn’t put the book (Kindle) down.
