In this classic coming-of-age novel, John Powers draws readers into Eddie Ryan's world with bittersweet humor and deep affection.

John R. Powers, Ph.D., is a tireless promoter, speaker, author and playwright. He is the founder of Powers of Motivation Institute and the author of four novels and several plays and has written numerous short stories and articles for Chicago magazine, Scouting magazine, Chicago Tribune magazine and Travel and Leisure. He was a contributing editor and wrote his own column for Chicago magazine.

Amy Welborn holds a master of arts in Church History from Vanderbilt University. She is a longtime writer for the Catholic press, a nationally-known internet religion weblogger, and the author of many books.

Andrew M. Greeley describes himself, first and foremost, as a Roman Catholic priest. He is also, however, a sociologist, an author of more than 100 non-fiction works of theology, sociology, prayer, and poetry, a professor of sociology, a newspaper columnist, and a successful novelist, writing in several genres, including mystery and science fiction. His fiction, which often tells stories of crime and scandal in the Roman Catholic church, can be violent and lurid and is considered controversial by many Church leaders. Greeley has written on such issues as homosexuality in the clergy, pedophilia, and papal politics, and has penned a series of mystery novels starring Father Blackie Ryan. Greeley was born in 1928 and is a native of Chicago, where he is a research associate at the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. He has made a great contribution to the Chicago area by establishing a $1 million Catholic Inner-City School Fund to provide scholarships and funding to parochial schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago that have a high minority enrollment.
