Ever since a small child I have loved reading and that love of books led on to a love of writing. I have published a couple of books in the past. Nothing too exciting I can promise. Unless you think that a guide to offroad driving and a railway book are exciting. Most people they send to sleep!
This is my first venture into eBook publishing and only came about because my book "On Eagles Wings" started life as a private PDF publication which was sent out to friends. One lady, who is married to a published author and the owner of a publishing company, encouraged me with kind words to publish it on Smashwords. So here it is and you can blame her!
I live in the county of Oxfordshire in the south Midlands area of Great Britain. Yes, for those in the know that is the Cotswolds and a lovely part of the world it is to live as well. But not as lovely as the Scottish Hebrides where a move is calling loudly. I am married...........sort of and have one daughter and two grandsons. They all make me feel old!
In real life I am a packaging engineer, French narrow gauge railway enthusiast and part time preacher, If you are brave enough to read my books you will see that I am a Christian with a difference and one who does not fit into the conventional Christian mould. When people ask me whether I am a Catholic or a Protestant, or what denomination I belong to my reply is "I don't belong to any denomination and I am neither a Catholic or a Protestant. I don't do religion I do God. And believe me there is a very great difference"!
You may be wondering why my books are free. The answer is that for several years now I have been on the most extraordinary spiritual journey. It has been the most amazing and rewarding journey of discovery, learning, personal growth and emotional and spiritual change from the inside out. A life-changing, faith-changing journey.
I have no interest in money and have no wish to profit financially from my books. I have been on this incredible life-changing journey by the free grace of God and my desire is to share the things and lessons I have learnt with other people so that they too come to know the freedom that God gives, have the same beautiful life-changing, faith-changing Father-Child relationship with Him that I have been given and the utterly incredible and so very beautiful childlike faith that has melted me and changed me and my life from the inside out..
My profit is that people who read my books grow closer to God and grow in faith and spirituality. That is worth far more to me than any amount of money and if that happens then I am truly a millionaire.
The Questioning Road
What is spiritual truth? Is it what the mainstream churches teach? or is the mainstream church and religion a prison? What is spiritual freedom and how do we find it? What does God think about people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered? And why does the church say so much that is negative about LGBT people when the bible says almost nothing?
Repaired, Restored and Re-Launch'ed
How do we cope with suffering? What attitude do we take when the storms of negative circumstances blow into our lives? Are we someone who gives in and lets our suffering defeat us? Or are we warriors who will fight their suffering, defeat their suffering, learn from our suffering and grow into the people that God wants is to be because of the suffering we are going through?
A New Day Dawns
The world is now on the brink of entering a new era. It is an era where the Christian church and the Christian faith as we know it today will cease to exist. This new era will see religion replaced by spirituality, competition replaced by compassion, peace will replace war and selflessness will replace selfishness. A new world order is now being born and it is a very exciting time.
Easter from a Different Angle
Do we approach the Palm Sunday and Easter stories from the wrong angle? Has traditional church teaching taught us to look down the wrong end of the biblical telescope? This little book is some thoughts that came to me during a time of contemplation on Good Friday morning 2014 and I hope that they will encourage you to look at the Easter story in an alternative and much more encouraging way.
Flying in the Wrong Direction
Is the course you have programmed your life's computer to go on leading you to spiritual fulfilment and the working of God's will in your life or is it leading you away from God and to spiritual disaster? In this little book I share the story of how for many years I flew in the wrong direction and the disaster that eventually overtook my life and destroyed me. I hope that it encourages you.
I Saw Three Ships Go Sailing By
A short story of three ships that are metaphors for the Christian church. The church of the past and the present, the church of the future and a ship of somewhat dubious reputation carrying passengers of somewhat dubious reputation.
On Eagles Wings
On Eagles Wings is the true story of a journey of suffering that started in the deepest darkest pit of despair and hopelessness and ended in the bright sunshine of a new life. A journey that brought deep inner healing, peace and contentment and being set free from the constricting chains placed upon me by the world and the church to become the person I was created to be.
