Any way… Continue

Build it and they will come


I’ve learned when it comes to events, people will attend if they want to.

Let’s talk about the hot topic of the last week the Christian Book Expo. They set up this wonderful expo and the readers didn’t come.


This is the question every event planner wants to know. We can debate about it for months, but the real deal is, they didn’t want to come. If they knew about it and it sounded interesting enough, they came. If they knew and didn’t want… Continue

Chapter One, from my new novel, Dirty Little Angels (now available on

The baby was a white fist of flesh. Mama had placed the ultrasound photo atop her dresser in a sterling silver frame.

When Daddy called from the hospital to tell us she’d lost the baby, my brother Cyrus said I shouldn’t worry. He said the baby didn’t feel any pain, that at nine weeks it wasn’t anything but a ball of meat squirming in Mama’s stomach. He said it hadn’t even… Continue

What the Lord Hates Part 4

(A Heart That Devises Wicked Imaginations)

“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”-Proverbs 6:16-19

Long Day

After hours of working and writing, I become spent. I come home and have dinner with my wife and kids. I will then proceed to the living room where my computer sits. I the check my e-mails and whatever else comes to mind. Finally, I like to go over to my T.V. set and turn on the Wii.

My favorite past time is playing games. This really seams to relax me and I tend to get a better nights sleep after an hour of playing games. I know it sounds crazy, but that is what works for me when I… Continue
