Phoenix-area actor and songwriter Bob Ryan launches his first book of fiction, Signs Along The Road.
The sixteen short stories feature an oddball cast of cowboys, detectives, musicians, and used tire salesmen. Along the way, they begin enterprises, lose and find love, annoy one another, elude death, complain about the food and find a little light.
