Welcome to the website of author Ron Parham, author of Molly's Moon and the newly released Copperhead Cove, and the soon-to-be released thriller Festival of Fear, due out in Summer 2016. Copperhead Cove is available now on Amazon.com, BN.com, Kindle and Pen-L.com

Ron Parham has done it again. His second Ethan Paxton – Jake Delgado thriller, Copperhead Cove, is just as exciting and entertaining as his first novel, Molly's Moon — maybe even more so. This time his heroes are back east, in the hills of Kentucky, trying to save Ethan's older brother Bo and family from a nasty situation in which they have gotten on the wrong side of a vengeful and death-dealing wing of the Chicago mob. Once more delivering his story from multiple points of view, Parham scores big with another fast-reading page-turner.”

[5 STARS] Exciting, well-written, excellent characters
The most down-to-earth country man you'd ever meet gets himself mixed up in a world of trouble when he agrees to take a couple of basketball coaches on a fishing tour. Copperhead Cove is an exciting read fro start to finish. I love how I feel I'm right there in that small town where everything happens. There's a large cast of characters, each unique and well-drawn. If you enjoy suspense, you'll love this book.”

“Molly's Moon's by Ron Parham which I won through Goodreads Giveaways is a fast-paced, explosive thriller that begins after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, September 11, 2001. As the world trembles under the chaos and shock of the attack, Ethan Paxton who's stranded in the Netherlands finds out his daughter Molly and two of her friends have been kidnapped while returning from a school mission trip to Tecate Mexico.
     “In a blockbuster novel that blends terrorism, sex trafficking, kidnapping and murder into a plot that grips the reader from the first page to the last, there are underlying elements of deliverance, faith, unconditional parental love and self-sacrifice. With clever dexterity Ron Parham not only uses a sliver of moon to bring Molly courage and comfort during her ordeal and a sense of rightness at the end, but he imaginatively links the past history of several key characters.
     “This well-written story is hauntingly realistic and would make a great movie. Molly's Moon is not only entertaining but captures your interest and doesn't let go. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would give it an even higher rating than a 5.0 if the scale allowed. Ron Parham is definitely a writer to be watched.”
~Wendy's Review, Goodreads (Read from August 23 to 24, 2014; read count: 1)

"MOLLY'S MOON is a thriller set in the immediate wake of 9/11. Widower Ethan Paxton is in Amsterdam on a business trip when the terrorists strike the U.S. When he learns that his teenage daughter has been kidnapped in Mexico, he's desperate to get home—but all flights to the U.S. have been cancelled.This taut, fast-paced thriller marks a very promising debut for author Ron Parham. I'll be watching to see what he does next."
~ Barbara Rogan, Best-selling author of A Dangerous Fiction and seven other mysteries

Author Ron Parham takes us back 13 years to America’s worst nightmare, reliving the horror . . . showing how many embraced our pain. {With} scenes vividly depicted and artistically crafted, readers will find themselves enduring what each {kidnapped} girl felt and the pain inflicted on each one of them by their captors.
