Masterfully written in the manner of J.D. Salinger (Catcher in the Rye), William Golding (Lord of the Flies) and Stephen King (The Body), the 2012 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner REICHOLD STREET, by R.L. Herron, is a spellbinding coming-of-age story.

Albert Parker is the new kid in the neighborhood. He brings with him the emotional scars of early parental loss and all the aggressive attitude a dysfunctional and abusive step-father can create. His struggle to fit in - and the stories of the people around him as he tries - create a powerful story about friendship, love and loss that Kirkus Reviews called "Skillfully written and emotionally charged."

Set in a working-class American neighborhood in the turbulent 1960s, REICHOLD STREET deals with some tough societal issues: bullying, alcoholism, family dysfunction, criminal activity, murder, suicide and the horrors of fighting in Vietnam. Nothing is what it seems to be, as the story takes you from awkward teenage introductions to the searing tragedy, yet remarkable redemption of war.

About the Author

A member of the National Writers Association, Michigan Writers, the Association of Independent Publishers (US), the Alliance of Independent Publishers (UK) and the American Academy of Poets, Ron Herron once worked for some of the world's largest advertising agencies and enjoyed a long, distinguished career on the public relations and marketing staffs of an international Fortune 10 company.

He has three other books available at B&N: the general fiction short stories gathered in the book TINKER, the 2013 Readers Favorite Silver Medal fantasy collection ZEBULON, and the sequel to his debut novel, called ONE WAY STREET.

Although he admits to disliking the winters there, Herron still lives and writes in Michigan with his lovely wife, an ugly mortgage and one extremely large cat.
