Billy Hobbs is a successful dentist and a devout family man
living a good life in the suburbs of Denver Colorado. All is
well until a semi-tractor trailer loses control on a patch of
black ice, ending the beating hearts of Laura, Molly and Mandy Hobbs,
Billy's wife and two daughters. His heart is shattered. He is alone and
practically inconsolable. His life begins to spin out of control.
During his darkest hours, he fi nds encouraging notes and mysterious
bottles of blue nectar that contain remedial powers. He soon learns that
an entity called 'Fate' controls dominion beyond the comprehension
of mankind. Billy struggles with the plausibility of 'Fate' but begins to
allow acceptance when a phenomenon begins to evolve that no person
on earth has ever experienced.
For closure, Billy seeks an encounter with the semi driver, but is
intercepted by a mugger who ultimately dies from the confrontation.
Billy undergoes vigilante and murder charges.
Alas, Billy's new friends, the Johnsons, begin their
own detective work and contrive a plan to unearth
the truth. The wheels of justice move forward and
Billy is acquitted of all charges brought against
him. His name is finally cleared which propels
his objective to a reassuring path and to a new, yet
familiar world as promised by 'Fate.'

On his journey to a business degree, Rod began to take writing more seriously while attending South Dakota State University where he started writing “Keller’s Den,” his fist published novel. The intriguing story line and subplots in “Keller’s Den” demonstrate that he has no shortage of creativity. The same holds true for “A Passage to Home,” an incredible story about tragedy, triumph and miracles. Rod's third book, "Body Parts," is an engrossing story that provides an eerie twist into the world of underground organ transplants.

Interesting trivia: There is a host of notable author’s in Rod’s ancestry which include Louisa May Alcott, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Geoffrey Chaucer, O Henry, Stephen Crane, Laura Ingalls Wilder, William Faulkner and Truman Capote.

Also, Rod’s 9th Great Grandfather, John Alden, was a leader on the Mayflower along with Captain Miles Standish, 30 crew members and 102 passengers. Alden was said to have been one of the first to set foot on Plymouth Rock and was influential in the creation of Thanksgiving along with the Wampanoag Indians.
