Kitty Foth-Regner

Kitty Foth-Regner was living the feminist dream—a successful copywriting business, the perfect live-in boyfriend, beautiful garden, and a nice house. But when her beloved mother developed a fatal illness, she found herself on the brink of despair with nothing but questions: Could there possibly be a God? If so, which God? And might Heaven really exist?

Bound by a whispered promise, Kitty set out to answer these questions.  She investigated the scientific, historical, and prophetic evidences for the supernatural.  Scrutinized a kaleidoscope of worldviews, from Hinduism to the New Age.  And finally found the answers she sought in Biblical Christianity.

Kitty has written a book called
Heaven Without Her.  Recounted in Foth-Regner's own smart and oftentimes witty voice, Heaven Without Her demonstrates for skeptic and believer alike that truth is indeed knowable - and that it can be discovered by anyone who is willing to examine the evidence objectively.

Endorsements for The Origins Trilogy and
The Tartarus Chronicles
“Logic’s End is a great read, and I highly recommend it.
I very much enjoyed reading Logic’s End.  It explores the question of what life would be like on a planet where evolution really did happen.  The surprising result helps the reader to see why life on Earth must be the result of special creation.
For those interested in science fiction but who are tired of all the evolutionary nonsense, Logic’s End is a refreshing alternative.”

Jason Lisle, PhD,
Astrophysicist, Institute for Creation Research
“In this book, Robinson has discovered a “novel” way to communicate vital information to young adults and readers of all ages. Mainstream indoctrination on the origin of species and the age of the earth are regularly encountered, and has long needed combating. Through this unique story, truth is conveyed.”
Dr. John D. Morris,
President, Institute for Creation Research
"Pyramid of the Ancients will challenge you to reconsider the conventional wisdom concerning the history of our world."
Tim Chaffey
Author, The Truth Chronicles
Editor, Answers in Genesis
"A thoroughly enjoyable read with great characters and a compelling, suspenseful story propelled by lots and lots of action. For me, the icing on the cake is the enlightening apologetics information masterfully woven into the story."
