A fun and funny Christian romance. I don’t read this genre regularly, so I’m not a good one to judge, but Kinnard seemed more successful at creating engaging characters and a believable plot. Most Christian romances fall short on both counts. As is typical of this genre, everything is so sweet and innocent, it presses credibility. (view spoiler)

“Ray Gun”? Sure, the protagonist pastor writes science fiction on the side.

Angel with a Ray Gun is an emotionally moving novel and packed with spiritual truths. And it's all wrapped up in a delicious romance. What more could a romance-loving reader like me want? This author is one of the best "kissing scene" writers I've ever come across. Her writing makes me breathless without making me feel overly stimulated. Seriously. The tension in her multi-layered plotting is so realistic, too, that the conflict works perfectly to build the tension in the story. I could see the ...more

Angel with a Ray Gun is perhaps one of the best, if not the best book, I’ve read this year. I have trouble putting into words how truly fantastic this book truly is. This tale draws you in and makes you fall in love with characters so real you hate to leave them when you finish. Not only does this book satisfy you emotionally but you will walk away feeling closer to God and thirsting to know Him better. Romance is alive and well in His and Ms. Kinnard’s able hands. This is one book you should de ...more

I admit, I've known about this book for quite well, but the title always made me wonder what in the world--despite the fact that I really like sci-fi/fantasy. Man, oh, man, am I sorry I waited this long.

Where have you been, Deb Kinnard? Why isn't anyone in the industry smart enough to pick you up and put you on someone's best setller list? Jeepers...

Deb has story-tellig chops that make me drool with envy. Her characterization and voice make the story come alive, and I wanted to get right in ther

Angel with a Ray Gun is unlike anything I've ever read. Congrats to Kinnard on the original and out-of-the-box plot. Matt is a likeable character with lots of love to offer. A.J. grew up with a hippie mom, and no father, which has caused her to struggle with some areas in life. I really liked reading their story. However, I was ready to shoot some of those church Elders, which is probably unchristian of me, but cannot be helped. I hate characters that go on power-trips, think they know everythin ...more

Deb Kinnard started writing at age ten, frustrated because there was no preteen girl with a horse on “Bonanza.” From there she progressed to short stories and really bad poetry.

In college, she gained two degrees in health care and spent time observing hippies, basketball stars, el-ed majors and other strange species. While raising two active girls and cherishing a husband, she enjoyed a career tha
