Author RG Bud Phelps has been chosen as one of 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading. His award came as the result of an appearance on The Authors Show in which he discussed his newest release, his historical fiction novel 'Anti Nazi Task Force'.

'Anti Nazi Task Force' is the sequel to 'Mill Park Mystery'. 'Mill Park Mystery' begins with a murder in a small Nebraska Town, involving a mysterious black haired man with his path leading to Nuremburg, Germany and a startling conclusion.  From the point where 'Mill Park Mystery' ends, readers can follow the continuing adventures of Phelps’ characters in 'Anti Nazi Task Force'. They have been assigned by this special task force to search for private art collections which were taken from Jewish families during WWII.  The book is an exciting tale of intrigue and romance. In real life Phelps visited the places mentioned in these books and incorporated many personal memories into both mystery novels.

"I am pleased to have been chosen as one of 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading," Phelps stated.  "I feel very blessed as I have won this award for the third year, being featured as one of the great writers you should be reading.  The books, “50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading” are available at the Author’s Show website.  The 2013 issue features my book “Gibbon’s Secrets”; the 2014 issue features my book “Back in the Day”; and now the 2015 issue features my book “Anti-Nazi Task Force”."

Phelps has penned a number of novels across several genres.  'Gibbons Secrets' is a down-to-earth historical fiction tale about a boy growing up in a small town during and after WWII. 'Back in the Day', the second in his life series, covers the years from 1945 to 1955.  It is based on his personal memories of growing up in Curtis, Nebraska and his four years in the U.S. Navy.

Phelps business books include 'Cover Your Nut', a business book that offers business owners a tool to analyze progress and make plans for the future through the analysis of financial statements. 'The Business Plan and Beyond' teaches new entrepreneurs about the foundation and needs of new businesses.
