T&R Independent Books

 R. Frederick Riddle is in the process of building a literary resume that will extend well beyond his life. Since his first book was published in 2003 he has been writing historical fiction. Most have been based on an extensive knowledge of the Bible and an ability to bring the Bible alive!

He has now written six novels, including eBooks, plus a book on writing that is used in the Authors Academy.

A fan of Jerry Jenkins' books he early identified with its historical nature. While Jenkins Left Behind series dealt with the future rather than historical fiction, he has also written books dealing with the past. So Mr. Riddle felt an immediate connection.

His own books have dealt exclusively in the past, although that does not preclude future books dealing with prophetic events. He is currently working on rewriting the Rise of Shem as book four of his series The World That Was. This will also likely be re-titled for future publishing.

Acclaimed by reviewers for bringing the Bible alive, he is a devoted Christian and husband.

Authors Academy is an ambitious project to enable beginning and struggling authors to master the world of writing and produce their own books.

The Academy provides a self-teaching atmosphere where the writer can learn the basics of Independent business - Writing, Publishing, and Marketing.

Very affordable, lifetime membership offers training, tools, and a library of additional helpful tools.

In addition to a great education she has also spent many years as a secretary for a major corporate business. This brings to the business an understanding that will long serve us.

But as satisfying as that was, she had a secret desire to write. Now that secret is leading toward the publishing of her first book.

In 2017 we highly anticipate the publishing of her mystery. This teen novel will feature Rita Honeycutt, a teenage girl with a nose for intrigue.
