RABT Book Tours: The Ugly Priest by Richard Stickann 1 1 Oct 18, 2018 04:34AM  
This is Richard Stickann’s fourth book. His Catholic upbringing sparked the need to write novels that illustrate the impact religion has on people. His two previous novels - Glory Be To the Father, the Son... (2001), and Hobbledehoy Boy (2013) show how a strict religious upbringing can stunt the social growth of a person, particularly young boys. This book, Ugly Priest, looks at the other side of ...more
