The Writing of The Blood Red Robe and a Cover Reveal

Writing The Blood Red Robe felt like a natural progression. It was almost instinctual, having written stories about the enigmatic Mary Magdalene before. I've always been drawn to the allure of her stories, and this time, merging her essence into a medieval backdrop seemed like the perfect fit.

The story unfolds against the ancient streets of Jerusalem, with the Knights Templar at its core. Mary Magdalene's ethereal voice enters the minds of these characters, setting them on a quest to find her lost robe. Interestingly, they're also compelled to seek out a mysterious woman in a distant land.

My previous trilogy concerning Lady Aveline of Froulingham had left her future undecided. The Blood Red Robe determines her path. Overwhelmed by tragic events, she's become a recluse, on the brink of self-destruction. However, the whispers of Mary Magdalene within her mind ignite a spark of hope as she eagerly anticipates the arrival of two strangers, unaware of the transformation they'll bring.

What would happen when they eventually meet?

The Writing of THE MAGDALENE MISSION: An Archaeological Thriller

As a writer, I have an extraordinary curiosity about many things, explained or unexplained. It is the latter that often leads to the possibility of an interesting story. Such an opportunity appeared to present itself when I looked at the various theories and facts that surrounded the life and mystery of the Magdalene, as she was known.

It is generally accepted that she was a close companion of Jesus or Yeshua as he was then named. It appeared that she acted as an explanatory mouthpiece of his words to an often-bewildered collection of apostles.

What Christ spoke, she wrote down, and the original scripts can be seen in the museum in Berlin to this day.

Gospel of Mary

The most complete text of the Gospel of Mary is contained in the Berlin Codex, but even so, it is missing six manuscript pages at the beginning of the document and four manuscript pages in the middle.

The enigmatic factor is that ten pages are missing...

Drunks: An Alcoholic Drama Wins the Literary Titan Gold Book Award

Thank you to Literary Titan for recognizing the message of this book. I have delayed the publishing of Drunks since it does not fit the genre of my other books, but it has a special place in my heart and I am happy that it is out there to maybe help people with a drinking problem, or know someone with a drinking problem.

Drunks by Ken Fry is a tale that’s deeply personal and dramatic and is an ultimately inspirational story that is told with an infusion of romance. This story is narrated by Alan Markham, the main character, and his journey and experiences with alcoholism, marriage, and learning to conquer and control addiction. Alan and his wife, Chrissy, appear to have the life everyone wants – Alan has a successful career, and Chrissy lives a free, luxurious, and enjoyable life. Still, just below the surface, there’s trouble in their marriage.

An Excerpt from Drunks - A Story of an Alcoholic Couple



They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.

(Ernest Dowson)

The Release of The Keeper's Cup Draws Gnosticism Readers

The Keeper's Cup is now available on Amazon. Released on July 15, 2020 and already a #1 Bestseller in Gnosticism.

I suspect that The Keeper's Cup will upset some people of various religious denominations. This was never my intent, but I don't doubt there will be reaction. I can't help that nor make apology. At all times, I have attempted to show loving kindness and respect.
