Poem: Releasing God’s Power

I can depend on Christ to strengthen me!

Acknowledging that He is still in control,

no longer will I remain faint and weary-

since He comforts the depths of my soul.

Miracles always come in cans, not “can’ts”;

though His Presence and power are available,

I must humbly move forward under His guidance,

unashamedly wearing today’s Christian label.

His Spiritual fortitude divinely energizes me;

confidence in knowing that victory is coming,

allows me…

Official paperback cover for Children of Shadows

With under a month until release day (March 15) I thought it was time to reveal the official paperback cover.


CoS wrap cover


Why doesn’t it match the slick, shiny ebook cover? Because the series started back in 2009 with these covers, and if I change them all the wonderful people who have bought the first books will now have a…

Choosing An Idea

So, you've decided you want to be an author. The only problem now is knowing what to write about.

Let me share my own experience of finding what to write about...

In July 2013, newly recovered from a serious bout of depression, I was struck one day with a Eureka moment - I wanted to be an author. I'd been writing blogs on and off for a few years and had seen my writing skills and confidence steadily improve. Then, a few weeks later, the idea for my first novel came to me; My…

Hearing Right

Prayer 3


 Well, as promised, today I’m going to talk about the problem of hearing right when we are praying, and by praying I mean not just saying things to the ceiling, but actual two way conversations with God.  Of course, I don’t overlook the problem these days, especially in the west, of the fact that if you tell people you are talking to God and listening to God, they might rush you off to a place where they put people who are ‘hearing things’.

Tax Resolution: You Are Required to Pay Your Taxes

Spoiler Alert: Throughout the years, chat lines, the Internet, and in-person workshops surface regarding the issue of paying taxes. They often advise people to not pay their taxes. Many encourage participants not to file under the premise that U.S. citizens are not required to pay any taxes.

That extreme disillusion surfaces from what occurred in 1894 when the Supreme…

Hitting the best seller list

Today is the day of my Eareader News Today promo spot. Last time ENT featured my book it went to #176 in the entire Kindle paid store and briefly #1 in the romantic suspense department. Of course, that was only for a few hours. But what a thrill.

   Here is the link to the site. Please check it out and I urge all authors to submit their books to ENT. They only get a small percentage of your sales and make no money if your book doesn’t sell through…

Poem: The Whisper Inside

In my quiet morning moments,

I seek Your Presence today,

wanting time at Your side.

Without You, I can do nothing;

this is a sliver of Your truth

and not a statement of vain pride.

Still hungry for more of You,

is my heart’s humble claim;

don’t let me remain… teary-eyed.

Long ago, I accepted Truth found-

in Your Word, there are answers

for overcoming problems in stride.

Despite simplicity of my ideals,

I seek a fruitful…
