“Poignant and funny, Donnyboy illuminates a fascinating but little-known aspect of the American home front during WWII. Not to mention, it would make a damned good movie!”
Roger Corman, Honorary Academy Award-Winning Filmmaker


Donnyboy is a slam dunk for young and old alike. I couldn't put it down!”
Bob Cousy, Basketball Hall of Famer, Boston Celtics


“Ron Phillips has struck gold with Donnyboy. I can't wait for his next book.”

Ellen Lively Steele, Former State Senator of New Mexico


“With great writing and an even greater story, Donnyboy details a little-known chapter in our past – and holds a prescient mirror up to the face of America today. Truly wonderful stuff!”

Justin Zackham, Screenwriter, The Bucket List


“A terrific read, with great characters and pace.”

Thomas Livingston, Author, The Paper Walls of Innocence and The Tower Is Down


“Clear writing, an excellent plot, and vibrant characters

that are very believable – and human.”
Shirley Cabeen, Adult Reference Librarian, Los Angeles Public Library



Karen Evenden, Author, A Taste of Croatia


“A wonderful coming-of-age story with all the right lessons: honor, courage, forgiveness, compassion, and loyalty.”

Cathryn Krause, Director, Ojai Music Festival


“Sets the stage perfectly with terrific characters

and a charming story.”

Bobbie Roberts, Director, New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence


“Not a typical coming-of-age story, Donnyboy is resplendent with one-liners that capture a young boy's evolution in a humorous and empathetic manner.”

James Phillips, Retired Book Reviewer for The Kansas City Star, Library Journal and Best Sellers


“A very good read, and well-written. Reminded me of my own youth in a little town in Montana. Sometimes little towns have the best stories.”

Joanne Riley
