Authors Not-So-Anon. Wk #12 - Blog Tour!

Welcome everyone to the twelfth Authors Not-So-Anonymous weekly meeting AND the Priest and Peaches Blog Tour!!  This week, I would like to introduce Larry Peterson and his novel The Priest and the Peaches!

Larry Peterson is a YA and Children's book author who started writing as a child.  "As life pushed forward I never seemed to find the road that led to "writer" but I did always think about finding it.  I could go on and on about "stuff" but suffice it to say I finally found the road I was looking for about five years ago and I have been on it, bumps, pot-holes and detours included, ever since."  Larry also actively participates in his Catholic church, coaches little league for his grandchildren, and leads an active family life.  Larry battles MS all the while having a happy married life, three grown children, and six grandchildren.  His novel The Priest and the Peaches released in December, 2011 and has been doing well ever since.

The Priest and the Peaches Book Summary:
Historical fiction novel set in the Bronx in the mid-1960s.

Take a seven day journey with the five, newly orphaned Peach kids, as they begin their struggle to remain a family while planning their dad's funeral.

They find an ally in the local parish priest, Father Tim Sullivan, who tries his best to guide them through the strange, unchartered and turbulent waters of "grown-up world." A story that is sad, funny, and inspiring as it shows how the power of family love and faith can overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. (end)
