E DITORIAL REVIEWS:
“Bill Stephen’s Vámonos! takes a wry and realistic look at human nature and the result is fun, lively, innovative, and highly entertaining. Instead of editorial comment on the character’s foibles, the various critters do the job, and the result is often hilarious and deeply revealing. Though the protagonists get themselves into heaps of trouble, the general tone is upbeat throughout, often left me laughing out loud. I recommend ¡Vámonos! in the highest terms.” Florence Weinberg, Ph.d Author of The Storks of Caridad and Unrest in Eden
“From a literary standpoint, Vámonos! is a book about good. evil, redemption, and the human condition, and it handles those elements with grace, intelligence, and wit. Remarkably, it also does something that literary novels rarely do: while accurately capturing the zeitgeist of today’s Mexico, it delivers the kind of edge-of-the-seat entertainment usually found only in plot driven thrillers. Have you ever wondered what it might be like to ride a Harley, or maybe to ride one in Mexico? Vámonos! brings you those experiences, virtually in 3D, with as much excitement as anybody needs, and does so with close to zero predictability. And there is enough humor to keep you smiling through even the most suspenseful scenes. The ending is especially satisfying: not only do the main characters achieve redemption but so do readers, most of whom will not be able to finish the book without a surge of optimism and a renewed enthusiasm for their own slog through this veil of tears.” Jim Peyton author of The Vampires of Bustamonte
“I think the comparison to Christopher Moore and Carl Hiaasen is a good one. I’ve read several of their books. In fact, I enjoy listening to these types of books and think Vámonos! is perfect for the audiobook format. It’s funny with a charming, self-deprecating hero. It reminds me of a modern day Don Quixote. And the dialogue and situational comedy make it a great candidate for film.” Diana Lopez author of Confetti Girl and Sophia’s Saints.
C&W singer/songwriter Skeets Hollaran and best friend, piano player, Jesse Suarez, are both underachieving Austin, Texas, musicians. Skeets finds himself homeless when his soul mate, Gena Koster, kicks him out for philandering. Jesse’s landlord evicts him and threatens criminal action for his hot rent checks. They flee, on their Harley motorcycles, into the Mexican desert. They hope for a life-changing, pivotal spiritual journey of redemption: sin seared from their souls by the desert sun, atonement, and absolution of Skeets by Gena.
Instead, a riotous romp follows from the Mexican border to the small town of Tolencita where the despot El Jefe jails them and threatens their lives.
As you ride along with Skeets and Jesse on this Don Quixote-esque adventure, you find (in spite of the playful tone and often thigh-slapping humor) mankind’s foibles arrayed, illegal immigration illuminated, greed uprooted and foiled, and political oppression confronted and vanquished – all without a single gunshot.
Wonderful Josefina, the Mexican burro, also shows us if we are steadfast in our faith and stay the course, we can achieve our dreams, even though we might get diddled along the way.

I t is difficult in this day and age to imagine Christianity without the beneficent presence of the Blessed Virgin.
Next to Christ, of all those who grace the pages of the New Testament, Mary is perhaps the one who touches us the most. Her motherly love often allows even the doubting to approach her.
Her story – an unprepared teenage girl, charged with a daunting task and the scorn of her community, raising a son knowing always that she cannot protect him from the fate that will rob her of him – elicits our empathy.
She inspires not only devotion and meditation, having mysteries and ritual of her own, but also song and poetry.

C ounting days is irrelevant in the life of a well-to-do man, unless he counts the days passed in total service to the Empire. Salute. Submit. Shut up and scan the wrist. Therapists armed with batons and brass knuckles guide the derelict along a well-beaten path to Glory.
When human experiment Lukian Valentin escapes the Empire to save his crumbling sanity–through a grimescape of fissured highways, collapsing factories, putrescent sewers–he realizes the fight isn’t only for his life, it’s for his mind. Torturous flashbacks from a murky past spur him on a quest for freedom, while the Empire’s elite retrievers remain at his heels, determined to bring him home for repair.
Lukian needs one doctor to remove the implanted chips from his body, and another to serve him a tall glass of answers. Lukian attempts a psychedelic salvage of his partitioned mind, gleaning fragments of the painful truth about his identity.
A scorching, clothes-ripping rendezvous with a mysterious woman offers Lukian a glimpse of his humanity, and respite from his nightmarish past. It also provides the Empire the perfect weakness to exploit for his recapture.
To rise to the challenge of protecting his new life, his freedom of thought, and his one shot at love, Lukian must reach deep into his mind to find his true identity. To defeat the Empire, he requires the deadly power of his former self–a power that threatens to consume him.
