Accompany him as he encounters the Archangel Gabriel during a walk outside of Moon Base Challenger. Follow him to the Vatican and the White House as the Earth is faced with the threat of another ice age. Join with the CDC as plagues threaten life on earth as we know it, while signs in the sky make their way over Jerusalem...a city that will shine like a sparkling diamond.
Summer of Indie interviewed author Frank A. Ruffolo, and asked him how he got started writing:
I have been writing now for about four years. I am 64 years old and semi retired living in South Florida empty nesting with my wife and editor Christine of 37 years. I started this crazy venture one morning when I awoke with what I thought would be a good idea for a movie. That got me to start writing "The Trihedral of Chaos Trilogy". I just released the three novellas in e book format on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The complete work will be released in print format in a set within a few weeks. While writing this work I received my inspiration for my first release "Gabriel's Chalice". That was published late last year and is available in Ebook and print format also on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I am currently writing two murder mysteries and planning a sequel to "Gabriel's Chalice".
