I am an author, editor, newspaper reporter, teacher, musician, and ordained minister, living in the state of Illinois, U. S. A. I write primarily inspirational novels and Biblical study non-fiction. and devotionals. My goal in the novels is to help make God real to everyday people in their everyday lives. And in the non-fiction material, my primary goal is to present the truths of God's Word is an easy, straightforward manner so that readers can find answers to questions, help, hope, and strength for their faith. I do write novels and short stories, from time to time, that are not particularly Christian in theme. But even in those books, I hope my readers can come away encouraged and inspired in some way. I have no argument with writers who feel their calling is to present the worst in this world where people and events are concerned. Perhaps they are genuinely called to make that part of life accessible through the written word. But for myself, I find that writing is a way to help people focus on the fact that most all problems have solutions, and most every night of sorrow has a morning of joy in the near future if we look for it.
