Coming soon to a bookstore and nightstand near you! (MIRACLES will be published in early 2019)


A dying sister, a bleeding statue , and a comatose infant in the intensive care unit. 



In praise of the Father Jake Austin Mystery Series: 


Jake Austin is a dedicated physician, an Army veteran, and a spiritual man. As the son of an philandering alcoholic, brother to a sister he never knew existed, and surrogate father to his sister's son, his devotion to family never wanes. His faith is tested, however, as he navigates his not so ordinary life. One thing is for certain, Jake is not your run-of-the-mill Catholic priest.  

Regrettably priests, like physicians, are sometimes exposed to the darkness of the human heart and to the chaos that it spawns, and the Father Jake Austin mystery series is alive with intrigue and pulse-pounding plots. Author John Vanek brings G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown into the twenty-first century and sprinkles in hints of PBS's Grantchester. You will not be disappointed.
