Given his stature as one of today’s most compelling and sought after inspirational fiction writers, it’s easy to let the reviews and numbers overshadow the essential reason why bestselling author, Robert Allan Young has come so far in the first place. As he says with typical understatement, “I’m just a guy who gets an idea or a story in his head, and I have to write it down.”
Since publishing his first edition of the passionate love story, THREE DAYS WITH MARY, Robert followed that with the suspense-filled, inspirational love story, TETELESTAI. The tale of Nicholai Delgado and Danica Harris captivated readers to the point where Robert released the sequel, SECOND CHANCES.
“I loved writing about these two characters. I became very close to them and it was hard to just them let go,” Young said. “And the people who read it felt the same. I was more than happy to continue their story with SECOND CHANCES.
For Robert, it’s never been about a popularity contest or a game of trying to write a financially successful bestseller. It’s about the message in each one of his works. And for Robert, it all comes back to the creative source. “I see a story or an idea in almost everything. Most of the time there’s joy and love but like real life, there’s also so much pain and hurt in this world. If I can write something and make a reader feel something they’ve never before felt or maybe even just stop and think, then its all worthwhile. It’s something that I can do and it just makes sense to me.”
THREE DAYS WITH MARY is the story of Brian LeClair, a man broken by his own choices, who is running from the pains of life. Trapped in a historic bed and breakfast by a violent storm, LeClair spends three days with Mary, the innkeeper, where he is forced to confront his beliefs, his purpose and his heart. Three Days with Mary is an emotional journey of one man’s redemption and salvation and his discovery of something we all strive for, perfect love.
TETELESTAI is a suspenseful, enduring love story that leads Nicholai Delgado and Danica Harris on a journey through a maze of evil, deceit, and murder to place where they discover each other. Both characters have endured a lifetime of loss and sacrifice but in their journey they discover the true rewards of faith, grace and love.
Robert is currently working on several fiction and non-fiction projects. THREE DAYS WITH MARY has been optioned as a feature film.
I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, or should I say was. Mr. Young, you have taken my away with this story and are now my favorite author. Please hurry and do another and another and another!
Deeply touched and moved!
Wow. I just finished reading Three Days with Mary. It was recommended by a friend and I am so thankful I listened to her. I have read numerous books throughout my life and this ranks among the best. I've read The Shack and several other Christian fiction novels and this one is the best by far. I've seen Young compared to Nicholas Sparks but with more depth and I have to agree. I can't wait to see what Young does next.
"Three Days with Mary will change your life. Young will show you the greatest love you can ever experience and make you want it more."
- Amber Benefield
"Excellent new author! I wanted more. Young draws a picture with his words and makes you feel like you are watching it happen. More, more more..."
- Jodi Blancett, Author
"Young's writing is reminiscent of a Christian version of Nicholas Sparks. He's not afraid to delve into the deepest areas of love and sacrifice without losing the deep hope we still have through God. His stories live in our hearts and our dreams long after you've finished the story."
- Dineen Miller, Spiritually Unequal Marriage
