Recently we saw
the Tomorrowland movie with friends. Fun movie, but it left me sad. The whole idea was that the world stopped dreaming
and lost hope, leading to destruction. What was missed was the key to hope--faith in God.
Sometimes we wonder
about ourselves, about God and where He is in our lives--especially when the way isn't all that clear. Click the link below

Writing has been my life since I first
picked up a pencil before I entered school. I learned the alphabet and the word AT. After that I went down the alphabet rhyming
words. It was intoxicating!
By the time I left third grade, I was writing stories and knew one thing--I
wanted to be a writer. (I also wanted to be a jockey, before there were women jockeys. I was deep into the Walter Farley "Black
I geared my education to become a writer. In high school I won writing awards and sold my first
short story. During college I began selling my stories and articles. I graduated with a comprehensive degree in Journalism--a
very good foundation for any type of writing.
Now, many books later, some traditionally published, some with
small publishers and some self-published, I still write for my career. (Some of those books won awards.) I have a regular
column in a regional newspaper. I write short articles for Internet clients. And still develop book projects.
What I write reaches all ages. Interesting how, as my own children
grew up, I wrote stories for their different ages and stages. I write both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and historical,
mystery, fantasy and even romance. I also write about the moral, cultural and political issues of the day.
I write from a caring, life-affirming, Christian perspective.
You'll find here books and writing to challenge, convict, encourage and lift up.
