After a lifetime of obstacles that rendered me incapable and at times, unwilling, to pursue my dream of becoming a writer, I finally did it at a time when most people are heading for retirement. How wonderful that the Lord Jesus Christ gave me a new career as part of the 1.1% of all screenwriters that ever get a movie made. He also allowed me to complete a book based on the movie called, “September Dawn.”
I’ve always been a romantic who has had the good fortune to live in romantic places. Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii with its enormous diversity of culture filled me with stories from around the world and nurtured my love of history and the people who came before us. From there, I moved to Aspen, Colorado which is completely unique and different from almost any place on earth. Again, I experienced a world of glamour, excitement, and unbelievable tragedy. Through it all, I was sustained by my faith.
What inspires me to write? God inspires me to write. Life inspires me to write. Injustice inspire me to write. The desire to inspire others and to cause people to think inspires me to write.
Publishing my work means if anyone finds enjoyment in what I write, or finds something profound that will change or better their life, or finds comfort, inspiration, or a kernal of knowledge that affects their thinking and/or world of feelings, then I have done what I was supposed to do.

The blessings we ask for this season
Aren't the kind that come wrapped with a bow;
We're asking for gifts from the heart,
Ones we need and never outgrow.
May we see in these bright decorations
With their colors and lights all aglow,
The beauty and wonder of life
That God's world was created to show.
Let the peace and goodwill of this season
Be feelings that we can extend
Far into the following year
To our neighbors, our family, and friends.
Most of all, may we always remember
To open our hearts every day and share all the love and the joy
In a special and meaningful way.
My, you've led an interesting life. I'm so glad that Jesus Christ is a fulfilling part of it, as he is mine. September Dawn sounds like a good read, and I love the title. Thanks for your comments re Heart of Stone.
