Heavenly Son Shine, a new book by "The Poet" Thomas Kruger, has been released by RoseDog Books.

In February 1937, "The Poet" Thomas Kruger was born in the little town of Pierceton, Indiana. He grew up and currently lives on the east side of Webster Lake. He loves to hunt, trap, and fish. His greatest passion was fly fishing and he and his family (wife and five girls) lived pretty much off the land. He enjoys being outdoors and loves to take his grandchildren camping and fishing.
In February 1977, at forty years old, Kruger came to know the Lord and, immediately, the Lord gave him the gift of verse to share the word of God in poetry. On October 5th, 2015, he was in a motorcycle accident that injured him. While in the nursing home for rehab, he wrote many more poems and, of this writing, he has written 1300 poems and is still going strong. He is currently doing much better.

Thus far, Kruger has had six books published and this book, Heavenly Son Shine, will be his seventh. Three of those seven were published by RoseDog Books and Kruger calls them "great people to work with." He has also written another book to be published by RoseDog Books entitled White Eagle. It was written in 1985 and never published until now. It is an adventure of a ten-year-old boy who became a mountain man.

Heavenly Son Shine is a 256-page paperback with a retail price of $18.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4809-7207-0. It was published by RoseDog Books of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information, or to request a review copy, please go to our virtual pressroom at or our online bookstore at
