About the author

RONALD HERA

Ronald has written three novels to date as part of THE BROTHERS SERIES; BETHLEHEM'S BROTHERS, JERUSALEM'S BROTHERS AND ISRAEL'S BROTHERS. He plans on continuing to write and hopes the series will become a Television Series or a Movie. The inspiration for THE BROTHERS SERIES comes from Mr. Hera’s experience with those who know little or nothing of Christ and wonder how Christians came to believe Jesus when he preached, healed and challenged the religious leaders of his day. 

Ron firmly believes that Jesus truly was the Messiah and the savior sent to those in His time and remains in ours. 

Ronald lives in Avon, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis, is married and has four children. Ronald enjoys writing historical fiction in an Action/Drama genre .

OTher books

JERUSaLEM’S BROTHERS

Would you leave your home to escape persecution? The early Christians in Jerusalem had to do just that. The Roman occupation coupled with the Jewish opposition presented an overwhelming threat to those who followed The Way. Their businesses, homes and families were destroyed while the elite practiced deceit and deception.

ISRAEL’S BROTHERS

Israel’s Brothers is the last of The Brothers Series, a Historical Fiction account of the life of two brothers who struggle with Roman occupation and Jewish politics during the first century. Encounters with Jesus, violent Zealots, devastating disease and love are woven through their lives like a tapestry of the times. Israel’s Brothers follows the brothers, Enoch and Simeon, from Rome to Jerusalem in an effort to save Jerusalem from certain destruction.

February 3, 2021Some of my readers have asked about my engineering past.

I grew up during the space race and the days of Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier. The idea of flight fascinated me, and I thought I wanted to be an engineer as early as the fifth grade.
I attended Purdue University after graduation from High School and enrolled in Aeronautics and Astronautics, one of the most difficult curriculums at Purdue. I loved it.
My real interest was flying for the Air Force, so I enrolled in Air Force ROTC only to find that my eyesight was not good enough to be a pilot. Being a navigator sitting behind the pilot didn't sound like fun to me since the Vietnam War was now in full force. So my next dream was to work for an aircraft company specializing in Aerodynamics. I took all the Aerodynamic courses offered at that time, only to end up designing aircraft engines for Allison Engineering in Indianapolis, my hometown.
I didn't start writing until I was 58 years old. More on that later.
