A Hard Day's Week

November 20th. 2016


It’s been a very full week for me and my wife, which has impacted on the amount of editing I’ve been able to do. The first three days we were up in Lincolnshire visiting two close friends, one of whom is unwell. As I mentioned in last week’s blog, our grandson Adam came over and looked after Tuppence. I think they both enjoyed it. I know Tuppence kept looking for Adam after he had gone home.

I managed to do some editing, snatching moments…

Poem: Connected to Hope?

Can you really expect to cope,

if you’re not connected to Hope?


Faith in Christ is a requisite;

let’s not be… overly delicate 


in discussing this matter today;

He alone is the Life, Truth and Way!


Our need for a real relationship

with Him, pushes us towards kinship;


after all, we’re to be joint-heirs

and strive to be spiritually aware 


of our Heavenly responsibilities!…

Guest post: The Story behind ‘UNEXPECTED PRISONER: Memoir of a Vietnam Prisoner of War’ by Robert Wideman

I first tried to write this book after I came home from Vietnam in 1973. I knew nothing about writing then, since I only had two years of college at the University of Toledo, where I studied chemical engineering. In 1973, I came home after spending six years in a Prisoner of war camp in North Vietnam. The U. S. Navy sent me to the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California where I met Bradwell Scott. He was a local journalist. He interviewed me for thirty…

My Books As Movie Props

Imagine that! Of course, I must admit I had imagined one of my books being used in a movie some day. With tongue in cheek, I say I had a grander idea in mind other than a prop, but hey I'll take what I can get. The more I thought about it the more I liked the idea.

It was mid August when I received an email from Kristina Baker Smith, Associate Producer, Stephen Folker Films at Davenport, Iowa, wondering if I'd like to donate a book for the film. I emailed back all sorts of questions.…

National Novel Write Month contest

I've entered the National Novel Write Month contest again this year for the seventh time and have just logged in with my total words for day two. It's always a fun incentive to do the first draft of a book in a month and get over the fifty thousand words to be considered a winner. By the first of the year I'll have this book ready to publish.

My total word count for all the years I've entered a book is 267, 711. That was before I edit and expanded the books.

I've chosen a story…

Changing things

November 5th. 2016


Tonight is bonfire night! Well, in UK anyway. Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. 400 plus years later and our government is still under threat, but this time by those opposed to Brexit. There have been numerous re-writes since Guy Fawkes: different bodies of opinion trying to bring down the rulers (good or bad). It wouldn’t make a good novel though because there never seems to be an end to it all.

I reached a milestone this…

Poem: Unveiled Faces

Unlike Moses, we should live…

with unveiled faces, letting

the Light of our Faith shine;

as His Children, we’re getting

favor among men; with clear eyes,

smiles and a bright disposition,

our efforts will be pleasing unto

The Lord, as we honor His position

as King of kings; He divinely rules

and reigns in our lives and hearts.

His holy promises remain steadfast

and His Holy Spirit will never depart

from us; as His human candles,…
