After a tumultuous childhood and years of searching Chris Buscher, the co-founder and CEO of Lay Me Down Ministry, finally found redemption. Jesus Christ became more than just words to him. Chris found love, mercy, and compassion through the power of the Gospel message. Having been completely healed and set free he was now given a new life; a life with purpose!
While as a student in Bible College the Holy Spirit gave Chris a prophetic dream that altered his life forever. God was calling him to serve the Church by 'laying down' his life to find the meaning of the cross. He sold everything he owned then proceeded to say goodbye to his family, and began traveling the world preaching Faith in Jesus.

Jackman M. J.
“M. J. Jackman is one of the most talented, exciting, and hilarious writers to explode onto the fiction scene in the 21st century,” was what M.J. Jackman hoped to read in the papers after the initial release of The Sid Tillsley Chronicles. He hoped his mastery of the written word and his elegant wit would bring celebrity status, which, in turn, would bring fast women, hard drugs and liquor, and then slower, more understanding women.
To date, he has successfully installed a decking area into his garden.
He’s gone back to university to be a “mature student.” And, no, he hasn’t gone back to learn how to write, which, in hindsight, would have been a good idea.
He gets an NUS discount.

When I was eight, I won a short-story writing contest. That was the last time I wrote a story in 30 years that wasn't for school, work or just because I wanted to write a story.
Well, that wasn't exactly true. In high school I wrote an LGBT romance that took up eight large notebooks with tiny lines. In college, I wrote for a newspaper and a radio station writing radio plays in the vernacular. They let me tell the stories I wanted, so I guess those count.
After college, however, I went into advertising. I got too busy writing to write. I wrote stories for brands, for politicians, milks, electric companies, shampoos, banks, shopping centers and more. Sure I wrote for people, and I tried to stay honest, but th ... read more
