What I am reading.

Star Wars Tales of the Bounty Hunters by various authors, edited by Kevin J. Anderson

"Are you a fan of the Fett?" asked Kevin Smith.

"Nah-I'm more of a Star Wars guy", replied Bruce Willis.

Excerpt from Live Free or Die Hard

So, if you are more of a Star Wars guy, then you probably are a fan of the Fett...Boba Fett, that is.

Star Wars Tales of the Bounty Hunters is a collection of short stories centered around that…

Conquering Your Fears

I remember as if it was yesterday when God spoke to my spirit about writing a book. I did not want to take on the task, because of fear. Fear of what others would think when I told them what God was calling me to do. I had to do some long, hard praying, to make sure that I heard Him…

The new informed writer

When I first started to think seriously about devoting my life to the pursuit of publication finding instruction was like walking through a desert. There was almost no information about how to go about getting published (this was prior to the internet). I remember buying my first issue of Writer’s Digest and literally digesting every page. I read the how-to articles over and over and marveled at the process of birthing a book into the world. When I realized…

What I am reading.

Resident Evil City of the Dead by S.D. Perry

This literary adaptation of Resident Evil 2 is a whirlwind of action as it documents the adventures of Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield in the doomed town of Raccoon City. Never a dull moment in this heart pounding, full throttle tale of living dead and the evil Umbrella Corporation.

Those that are are fans of zombie stories will not be disappointed. Survival horror at its most elemental!

What do you want from life? This seemingly innocuous question belies a conundrum of immense importance because our answers typically involve a perspective on life that ignores our connection to the real world. That is the world of nature and a balance of inputs and outputs that, were they maintained, would ensure life could continue. When asked what do you want from life, seldom is the answer: nothing more, I already have enough.

We humans are…

Poem: Pursuit of Holiness

The flesh lusts daily against the Spirit

and the Spirit wars contrary to the flesh.

The opposing tenets of grace and iniquity

can never with each other… completely mesh.

For the redeemed sinners operate by grace,

while the practitioners of unrighteousness

prefer the dark, ungodly ways of wickedness

and will not inherit the Kingdom’s fullness.

Fleshly works are clearly evident: adultery,

fornication, idolatry, sorcery, uncleanness,

Permaculture inspired by Being Human: A Question of Survival


I have recently started my own permaculture garden. I did so because I needed a better first hand understanding of how ecosystems work and so am trying to build my own. The first thing I noticed is that nature has its own ideas about how and where plants and so on should be arranged. My ideas have had to give way to what the plants ideas are. That is not to say I…
