Luana Ehrlich


Luana picked up her first adult spy novel when she was eleven years old. Today, she continues to have a passion for the thriller/suspense genre of fiction. In addition to being an avid reader, she is also a news fanatic, following events around the world on a daily basis, particularly the Middle East.

Luana is a minister's wife and has lived in Norman, Oklahoma for the past two decades. Previously, she resided in several states in the South and Midwest. Along with her husband, she also served as a missionary in Costa Rica and Venezuela.

Occasionally, she reports on the experiences of newly converted Christians for Baptist Press, a national news service for Baptists. At one time, she wrote a weekly column for The Indiana Baptist, entitled "A Story To Tell," which told the stories of ordinary people who became followers of Christ. Luana is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers.

“The author has done it again. She has written a suspenseful thriller that was hard to put down. I was always ready to turn another page and kept wondering if Titus Ray was going to catch the killer or end up being killed. It was definitely and extraordinary read. I would recommend it to any person who loves to read adventure novels.”

“Mrs. Ehrlich, I have just completed reading your novel, One Night in Tehran. To say I was delighted with the storyline is an absolute understatement. You are a wonderful writer and storyteller. I don't know what I was expecting, but you exceeded by a country mile all of them. You set the stage for the next book. Your skill matches beautifully that of John Grisham and James Patterson. I have often said that authors and TV dramas could be just as interesting without profanity if they majored on the story. You have proven this to be true. The skillful and beautiful way you handled the Christian faith aspect was so well done that no one outside the faith should be concerned or have any hesitation in picking your book up and diving in. Christians on the other hand will marvel at the wonderful treatment you provided your faith and ours. Our Lord, I am sure, is happy with your book and will bless you abundantly as people discover this work. God bless you richly and thank you for this powerful story of intrigue and local setting. With best wishes for your next book and the next appearance of Titus Ray”

“I am a huge fan of Joel Rosenberg's books. Have read them all and anxiously await every new release. I stumbled upon Luana Ehrlich's books by accident. I was looking for something to read between releases of Joel Rosenberg. Again...I think Joel Rosenberg writes as fine a book as anyone out there. That being said...I believe this author is well on her way to one day being in that same class. These are excellent books. I have read all three in the Titus Ray series and can sincerely say that I can't wait for the fourth book. I don't know Mrs. Ehrlich. Never met her. Don't know anyone who knows her. But I have become a huge fan. You seriously can't go wrong.”

“Wow. This book never stopped! It grabbed my attention at the beginning and did not let go. It still hasn't let go of me; and I find myself wishing that I had book 2 (please tell me there's a second book coming!) in had so that I could just keep right on reading! Obviously, one thing I loved about this book is that the majority of the story takes place in my home state of Oklahoma. :) While I have been to Norman several times, I'm not very familiar with the area. This book had me wanting to tour Norman just to see all the sights that Titus saw. (And I must say I'm curious about how many, if any, of the places mentioned are actually real.) The suspense was great! Definitely kept me reading and wanting to know what would happen next. I found the story line to be very interesting. And I really liked the characters too -- I'm looking forward to more development with some of these characters in the next book or two (please tell me there will be more!). When I realized that this book was written in first person, I wasn't sure about it. I'm not against first person at all -- in fact, I love it... when it's done right -- but some people just can't write it well. I'm happy to say that Luana Ehrlich is not one of those people. I thought it was very smooth, natural, and well-written. I love her writing style! I will definitely be recommending this book to my family, friends, and local library. I can't wait to read this author's next book!”

“One Night in Tehran is a well-written, suspenseful page turner of a book. We first meet the protagonist, Titus Ray, as he makes a daring escape from Iran. We hear him recount his mission to his CIA colleagues in a debriefing session. Both the escape and the debriefing set up the greater thrills yet to come when Titus relocates to Norman, Oklahoma. If you like suspense novels, spy novels, current events, fish-out-of-water stories, or stories about 21st century life in an American college town; you will like this book. The story is timely and plausible. It contains characters that grow emotionally and spiritually as the events of the book unfold. As the story ends, we find ourselves wanting to follow Titus Ray on his next adventure - an adventure promises to be coming soon.”
