    First, I've started a new series called "Three-Zee" for which the first book is entitled "Three-Zee", which I published at the end of January.

    Here's a description:

    Besides having a really bizarre nickname, Three-Zee Zook can see and talk to ghosts.  What’s bothering her about her latest sighting is that she’s also seen his corpse lying in the woods, except it disappears and she can find no evidence of it ever having been there.  With the ghost hanging around the neighboring empty Amish farmhouse she decides to investigate his murder, assuming it was murder, because she has no intention of sharing her ability with the local police.

    This books is available in all formats at Amazon (Including paperback), B&N, Apple, Kobo, Smashwords, etc.

    I also did the photography for a book about my church's architecture and stained glass windows entitled "The Word of God in Architecture and Stained Glass" by Dr. Charles C. Knerr.  I published that on Nov. 20, 2018.

    Many Christian churches, both old and modern, incorporate a great deal of Biblical symbolism into their architecture and stained glass windows.  The Church of the Good Shepherd United Church of Christ in Alburtis, Pennsylvania, exhibits many such symbols as detailed in this book featuring photographs of church architecture and windows with accompanying explanations and Biblical references.

    Because of its large format (8.5"x11") and color photography this book is available only in paperback format at Amazon.

    Links to these two books as well as all my other books are on my website

    During the 1958 World Expo in Brussels a section of the original Mozart Requiem Mass autograph containing the last four words that Mozart ever wrote was stolen. It has never been recovered. In his suspense novel, Requiem for Riley, author Roy Ziegler presents a gripping scenario about the quest to find the precious artifact involving international intrigue and a death-defying plot which unfolds in one of the most fascinating buildings in the world.

    My publisher Imzadi Publishing will issue my short story "Who Shot the Smart Guy at the Blackboard" as an ebook only on Nov. 24. It will be 99 cents on Kindle Unlimited.  When we have set up the actual link, I'll publish that. This is a fun, smart, tongue-in-cheek story about an encounter between a reporter and a politician -- and a smart guy at the blackboard.

    "Incarceration" anthology released on May 18th, 2017. Seventeen authors including "yours truly" wrote tales of possible incarceration methods. Some offer harsh punishments for what seems only a minor infraction, but you are able to explore these methods from a safe distance.
