Critical Acclaim

Bronze Star Award Homer received the Distinguished Honor Award from the Military Writers Society of America for The Sobs of Autumn’s Violins.

 

“Homer, a World War II historian, knows his stuff, but he is also a great storyteller. His amazing novels will appeal to a wide audience on both sides of the gender divide. They are tales you won’t forget.”

— Lou Stanek, author and critic

 

“[Homer] brings human sensitivity to World War II intrigue.”

— Midwest Book Review

 

The Devil's Alchemists

Look Long into the Abyss

“A must-read not only for the historical fiction buff, but for anyone who enjoys a well-told tale…the author’s skill lies not only in how he depicts the larger-than-life heroes and villains – even more memorable are the vivid and often touching portraits of people whose lives the war has upended and to whom our hearts go out…impossible to put down…an irresistible tale!”

— Kelynn Alder, award-winning artist and author

 

“A masterpiece of historical fiction, once again proving the credentials of Homer as a leading figure in the field…a suspenseful drama of epic proportions filled with page-turning, heart-stopping scenes that make you thirst to pick up where you left off.”

— Nancy Wilkens, author of When Apples Fall

The Devil's Alchemists

“Not only is the story powerful, but throw in an element of Greek tragedy, Shakespearian irony, and DeToquevillian historical perspective and you've got the makings for a World War II barn burner.”

— Anthony Nagle, author of Augustus Conspiracy

“A captivating story of the D-day invasion and all that leads up to it…a must-read for all avid fans of thrillers or World War II novels. This book is destined for greatness!”
