A Conversation on Post Traumatic Growth with Author Ronald ChapmanMagic City Books is delighted to host a native son for this powerful conversation. Born in Tulsa and raised in McAlester, Ron has been acclaimed for his most recent novels: The Dark Side of Grace (2023) and A Killer’s Grace (2016). Beyond his writing accomplishments, he is an Internationally Accredited Speaker, Facilitator, and Workshop Leader. He is also a national award-winning commentator on public radio and maintains three separate national and international practices focusing on leadership (Leading Public Health), personal transformation (Seeing True TM), and a progressive approach to twelve-step recovery (Progressive Recovery TM).Over twenty years ago, a serial killer granted Ron permission to use his story to promote understanding in the world. This resulted in A Killer’s Grace, described as a “work of art,” which launched a signature genre, the psycho-spiritual thriller. This fictional work introduced the idea of inherent innocence and led to the sequel, The Dark Side of Grace, which continues the story of co-protagonists Kevin Pitcairn, an investigative journalist with a history of violence and substance abuse, and his beloved Emmy, who represents far more than a romantic interest.This latest novel blends profound findings from research, psychology, and spirituality into an exploration of Post Traumatic Growth, presented in a highly engaging and readable fictional format. Pitcairn and Emmy follow the roots of violence after a horrific bomb blast in New Mexico, ultimately finding themselves deep in Appalachia within a contemporary and troubled landscape. Reviewers describe the book as deeply thought-provoking, while Ron’s followers eagerly anticipate the next installment of their story, the third novel in the series, expected in 2025.Join us in celebrating Tulsa’s native son, and be prepared for a professionally-curated conversation that is guaranteed to stretch each of us. Even better, as you will discover, the story and the experience are designed to lead us all to a place in our lives and in the world that is far more healed and whole.
