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.
If you ever wanted a glimpse into the world of film making, if you every wanted to see the entire process from screenplay to production to film, here is a rare opportunity to do so
For a limited time, I am offering to all purchasers of the novel September Dawn an unprecedented look at the film world. Send me proof of purchase of my book and I will email you a pdf file of the screenplay and the double blue one line schedule. What is the double blue one line? It is a daily shooting schedule for the movie. Buy the DVD on January 1st and you will have an amazing educational tool for all film buffs, wannabe filmmakers, and anyone else interested in the process. For just the purchase of September Dawn the novel, receive materials never before seen by the general public. If you are in film school or thinking of taking film classes, you won't want to miss this opportunity to get a glimpse into how the process works. For those who are just curious, it is a wonderful look at the world of motion pictures. Get the DVD and you will have the complete picture. However, I need the proof of purchase of the book only as Sony does the DVD. Carole Whang Schutter
I send you greetings of peace and love from the rest of the family. They, like I, are always with you and never leave or forsake you. The angels and the rest of us want you to know how precious you are to us.
When I agreed to give up my divinity and be born in the flesh, I did so very willingly. I looked forward to the time when we, you and us, could all be together and share in everything that is. I looked forward to loving you, hugging you, comforting you and encouraging you so that, when your life gets tough, you will feel secure and supported enough to face whatever you have to face. I looked forward to being the one you could rely upon unconditionally for that strength, comfort and encouragement whenever and however you need it.
Not only that, I looked forward to sharing with you that we created you to love you, and that we so hoped and desired that you would love us back. We want you in our life, and we love it when you want us in yours. It was so exciting when I could turn to my disciples and expand our relationship to include friendship and true fellowship. I offer that friendship and fellowship to you today as well, and I look forward to your inviting me into your life in that way.
You can see there are many reasons why I came in the flesh so many years ago. There’s more! I also wanted to set you free from thoughts and behaviors that hurt you emotionally and spiritually. If you were hurt by people or experienced hard times in your life and lost things like your health, relationships, or your way of life because of disaster or unemployment, I wanted to give you the tips and tools as well as the encouragement to recover emotionally and spiritually from who or what hurt you so you could have the kind of life I want you to enjoy.
Most of you understand why I sacrificed my life for you and what an act of love that was. It is my hope that this letter will help you understand how very much more my life and ministry were to accomplish. I look forward to expanding our relationship now and forever.
