Karlyle Tomms became an author late in life. He writes about one of his primary interests - people; personalities, relationships, and the human experience in general.
Karlyle Tomms is a writer who grew up in rural Ozarks poverty. He has been a life change consultant and speaker for over 38 years. He has written for different regional magazines and newspapers, and has often been selected to speak at both professional and non-professional events, as well as radio talk shows. However, he had never published fiction until completing his first award winning novel in 2014. His general method for fiction has been to define a character and allow that character to tell his or her own story from first person perspective as though the character is writing an autobiography. Through his characters he explores the psychology of the human condition as well as the various elements and entanglements of personalities which is why it has been said that he has, "a deft appreciation of personalities." His novels incorporate the social and historical influences surrounding the lifetimes of his characters, and are stories of overcoming social, emotional and spiritual challenges.
Currently pending cover redesign, the expected release of this novel by Page Publishing is late 2019.
Ronald Dennison matured into adulthood in the early 1950’s, the son of a backwoods country preacher from the foothills of the Ozarks in northern Arkansas. His dreams about a strange red-headed woman and Jesus began when he was about ten years old, and continued for most of his life. His dreams told him he was called to preach just like his Daddy, but he never assumed that his calling would take him to Nashville where he would become a nationally known televangelist. In addition to his dreams, Ronald Dennison had secrets. Some of his secrets were kept from the church and the community, and some he tried also to keep from his family, but secrets have a way of being found out. The more famous and wealthy he became, the more he struggled with himself over his hidden sins. He lived a life of secret torment and anguish that the public never knew. Ronald Dennison had many dark secrets, some so deep and dark that he hid them even from himself.
