Looking back over the week, I can see I’ve been busy but I can also remember how much rain there has been. Monday was torrential. Tuesday we went on a coach trip to Salisbury and it rained there as well, all day. We went into the cathedral. It was the first time for me, but this is the 800th year of the signing of the Magna Carta (1215), and I wanted to go into the cathedral and get a sense of the history behind our heritage. While I was in there admiring the huge structure, I…Continue

Urban legends and ghost stories are part of our culture. It is in our nature to explore the eerie and spooky. We have an insatiable craving for stories that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Well, let me tell you a tale that not many have heard of. It is the story of Mad Myrtle. Like many legends, there could be more than one version. This legend, though, originated somewhere in the Tri-State area where the infamous Tri-state Tornado of 1925 took place.…Continue

O Lord, my everlasting God,
Your splendor warps my thinking;
this Cosmic playground of Yours,
encourages me to keep expanding
in my search of finding You near,
in the nuances of my existence;
I’m surrounded by circles of Life,
which are endless in persistence
and repeatedly bring me back to You.
I’m dumbfounded with awed amazement,
that You conceived a dynamic world
of challenging, eternal excitement

Is there sex after marriage?
Your sex life is great when you are newly married. In fact, you probably have sex more often than rabbits. Then as years passed, you notice a change. Your sex life isn’t the same as before. You’re not having sex with your spouse as often as you want to, and you start to wonder what’s wrong.
There’s this joke that you should take a jar and put a penny in it each time you have sex during the first year of your marriage. Then you should take one penny…Continue

The history of the country we now know as Liberia began in the 1800s, when abolitionists and slaveholders discussed the idea of setting up a colony in Africa for freed African-American slaves. To this end, the American Colonization Society was founded in 1816.
Through fundraisers, the Society managed to fund the enterprise and on February 6, 1820, the “Mayflower of Liberia” (formerly “Elizabeth”), departed New York for West Africa with eighty-eight free black emigrants and three white…Continue

It was very exciting last week when my contemporary suspense novel, DROP OUT hit #5 on the paid Amazon best seller list. I was thrilled to have Nicholas Sparks as my #4 competitor. How I got to this list is no secret. I booked promotional spots on high-traffic websites and spent the days leading up to the spots marketing and promoting my a*s off. I stayed at that #5 position for an entire 36 hours before slowly slipping back into the 100’s; about where I am now.
Did I ever in…Continue

From the daily rising of the sun
and its subsequent sunset, know…
that you’ve been summoned by God.
Evident from the Universe’s glow,
His Presence, perfect in beauty,
shines eternally over all of Zion.
Christ’s majesty has been revealed!
Behold the Lamb, Who is the Lion
of Judah and the ruler of Heaven.
Though He may be presently silent,
final judgments will be executed;
His decisions won’t remain latent.
Unto Himself and…Continue
