I don’t worry when I’m watching a television series because I know there is an author. When I’m watching or reading a story, it’s all about if I trust the author or not. For my stories, I want readers to trust me. I only write happy endings with worthwhile lessons along the way. I love... Continue Reading →

Where did all the books go?
If you look on Amazon, you will find that I have unpublished all of my fiction books! I recently decided to go with an aggregate self-publishing website (a website which distributes my books to multiple retailers, including Amazon) in order to expand my market. I also decided to revise all of my fiction books during... Continue Reading →
People I Have Envied
Last night I was thinking about a book I have read, The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken (very good), and the part I was thinking about was (true story) when he was in China speaking to oppressed Chinese Christians. When they heard about the prosperity of America, particularly how we have multiple Bibles per... Continue Reading →
How to Have Joy When Life Isn’t Happy
I’ve been told something wonderful recently - “Your joy in the midst of hardships is inspiring!” I’m glad! It’s all God’s doing. If you don’t know what hardships I’m talking about, I’ll summarize: debilitating Lyme Disease, Covid-19, bedridden, weakness, isolation, back went out, setbacks, mysterious sensitivities to foods and medications, etc. It’s been quite a...

Diamonds in the Rough
I always have some form of pain/suffering in my books. Why? Probably to make them relatable - I don’t know a single person who has not endured some form of suffering over the course of life. I have noticed a pattern in my stories that my favorite characters end up being the ones who endure... Continue Reading →
Escaping the Houdini Handcuffs of Depression, Anxiety, and Suicidal Thoughts
All right, I know those little bamboo thingies people use as gag gifts are actually called Chinese finger traps, but I’ve always called them Houdini handcuffs, probably because of a certain cartoon that showed the skeleton of Harry Houdini and a finger trap on his index fingers as if it was the one thing he...

The River: An Analogy
Imagine all the people of the world are in a giant river with banks too steep to climb. The banks are the Law given through Moses, the Old Covenant. Everyone falls short. No one is “good enough” to climb out on their own. Some people in the river can swim and think they are doing... Continue Reading →
God is a Person
Imagine there were no men in the world, only women. (No wisecracks, please.) What if there were one woman who had a husband, the only man on planet Earth… How would she describe him to her companions? She could describe his physical features. Perhaps she could describe his biological makeup and its differences to women’s.... Continue Reading →
Why My Sin?
Why does God allow me to keep on being sinful? I don't think I'm the only one who has ever asked that. I love Jesus. I want to give Him my all and my best, and I want my all to BE my best. But it isn't. Not even close. My all includes all this... Continue Reading →
