"A Grisham-like thriller, Grandpa's Hook engages legalized abortion much like Uncle Tom's Cabin engaged, and helped end, legalized slavery." -Jedd Hafer.
Scott Degelman came to know Jesus in 1998 at 29 years old. He then transferred his lifelong passion for writing into serving God through the arts. A published poet, speaker, novelist and songwriter, Scott is Director at a Colorado Boys' Home where he has counseled for eight years. He is married with four children the last five years. He will attend a final year of Bible College after he stops having kids. Scott has recently initiated a pro-life ministry entitled Save One Soul, its purpose to unify all pro-life sites, and to propagate art for the pro-life cause. Scott came to know that, born in 1969, he would have been aborted had abortion been legal at that time. His subsequent passion for seeing abortion once again outlawed, and his obedience to God, created this novel. Scott and his family reside in the beautiful mountain town of Woodland Park, Colorado.
