Overview

In this prequel to The Ledge, Jersey Flats, and Holyland we find author
Roland Heinz at a cross roads in his life. Still stinging from his heartbreaking divorce and disgusted with his previous books he takes refuge in the small town of Chilton, Wisconsin where he begins his metamorphosis into the creator of two Pulitzer Prize winning novels. Pushing away his drinking is the first step, but allowing people back into his life is the second. Enter the mysterious Yeva, a Russian émigré with a dangerous past and a knack for literary editing, and the formula for Roland's success is slowly mixed. The combination of lover and editor seems perfect, but trouble is brewing for Yeva in the USA as unexpected events are now shaping the future back in the
USSR. Roland feels fate stepping in to disappoint him yet once more.

But, Roland Heinz has already turned his own personal corner and his writing is now magnificent. He strives to move on without Yeva and buys
Ghost Farm as a sanctuary and temple to his creativity. Slowly he begins to turn his solitude and loneliness into great literature. Despite his monetary success he subliminally longs for a family he will never have and a legacy that does not have an heir. Taking clues from his past, his friends, and even a ghost Roland begins to form a plan that will lead him to cross paths with magazine writer, Molly Costello. The rest is pure magic.

Richard Curtis Hauschild is a novelist and screenwriter, who was born and raised in Illinois and lived many years in Los Angeles working in the film and music industries. The Book of Roland joins The Ledge and Jersey Flats, and
