Tim Reinhardt presents Jesus’s Brother James, in conversation with Terry Roberts

Life can be challenging and overwhelming. After finding his wife in bed with another man, Mike meets the mysterious Father Coady, who promptly shoots him in the head (accidentally). When Mike wakes up in the hospital, he's introduced to Jesus's little-known brother, James, who is a poor stand-in for the Divine. Meanwhile, Amber a work-obsessed businesswoman also encounters the mysterious Father Coady and begins to fall in love with him, to the chagrin of her ever-urbane boyfriend, Paul. Fate seems to pull these four people together through their hilarious struggles to find meaning in a chaotic world.

A veteran of the pharmaceutical industry, Tim Reinhardt has traveled the world extensively and studied many diverse cultures. His travels, coupled with an eventful childhood, shape his thought-provoking perspective on life. He enjoys writing comedies placed in dramatic settings most of all because he likes the contrast between genres. Tim knows life can be challenging and thinks stories like these make the tough times a little bit easier to handle. Tim is the writer of the Academy-Award qualifying film Crackers, as well as the author of Afaq: I'm Trapped in India. He is currently working on a film adaptation for Jesus's Brother James. When he's not busy writing, Tim enjoys making films, playing tennis, and learning about history. He currently resides in Holly Springs, North Carolina, with his wife April, daughter Annasofia, son Jacob, and rescue dog Faith. Jesus's Brother James is Tim's second novel. He will be in conversation with Terry Roberts, author of The Holy Ghost Speakeasy and Revival.
