What if men could become pregnant? And how about a priest? See what happens when the satirical fantasy "Angels, Babies & Bad Guys" puts Father Rossi in a position he never dreamed possible.

Rossi is the pastor of a small parish in an old section of Los Angeles who finds himself with one whopping medical problem. He’s pregnant! The priest’s condition tests both his faith and his outlook on free will. His church tells him one thing and his conscience tells him another. While wrestling with the realities before him, God sends Rossi the Angel in charge of Free Will and Alternative Solutions.

Meanwhile, the Bishop and Rossi’s uncle decide that something must be done about his condition. Father Rossi comes to believe that no one has the right to make decisions about someone else’s body and that religious rules don’t fit everyone. He wrestles with his dilemma and begins to question other teachings of the church. Should gay couples be able to marry? Is abortion all right in some cases? Rossi also questions his future as a priest. This thoughtful satire debates some of the most pressing issues of the day.

“This fascinating novel will get readers thinking about beliefs they normally would just take for granted. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
