About-

It's C. S. Lewis (The Screwtape Letters) meets Christopher Moore (Lamb) in this quirky
fable about human aspirations and the nature of temptation.

Timothy McFarland is a failed theology student turned gift book writer. His 101 Good Things about Christmas has sold millions. But Timothy finds that his success has changed nothing; in fact, he seems more stuck in his life than ever. Wanting to be more than a rich hack, he is confronted by Lucifer, a Wagner-loving devil who offers to mold Timothy into a serious writer by teaching him to take a colder look at life.

And it works. Timothy is published in the right literary and commercial venues, and there's talk of The Great American Novel. Along the way, Timothy and the devil are having a grand time, talking religion, catching bad Elvis impersonators at the casinos, and watching devil-cam, Lucifer's ultimate home video network. But there's a final step Timothy must take. Can he write coolly about a tragedy that unfolds before his eyes, as the devil urges? Will he take on the full weight of the devil's writing gift and make it his own? All he has to do is change who he really is.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The Devil Likes to Sing is sinfully delicious, clever, funny, thoughtful, and dare I say it, redemptive. It ranks with Twain for wit and satire. The devil, having suffered bad press for centuries, is finally given the creative respect he so richly deserves."
--Philip Gulley, Author of the Harmony series

"If it's true that the serpent is the shrewdest of all animals, then Thomas Davis has a bit of snake in him. The Devil Likes to Sing is scandalously crafty. So much so that one has to wonder . . ."
--Tripp York, Author of The Devil Wears Nada

"The Devil Likes to Sing is laugh-out-loud funny at places and clever throughout."
-Richard A. Kauffman, The Christian Century

A book "worth reading. It is fiction, but it's not fluff. There is a lot of meat here that will be food for much thought."
-Robert Cornwall, The Edgewood Review of Books
