With a name like Read, it only seemed natural that Ronn Read would love books. From early on Ronn liked to read stories of various athletes, especially baseball players—largely because of his love for sports (later he served as the assistant baseball coach at Liberty University). Hence, the character of Brock’s friend, John Turner, in Blood Reflection, was born. Ronn and his wife, Janie, have raised five children and now have ten grandchildren. They live in the NW Suburbs of Chicago, where Ronn is Senior Pastor of Alpine Chapel.
