I am a high school teacher at a private school in north Los Angeles. I have been teaching for 30 years; sixteen public and fourteen private. I have been married for over forty years to beautiful Laurie Barker. We have three children and three grandchildren. I have been writing for a number of years. I started by making classroom newsletters, and progressively got more involved as I printed the school newspaper then the web page and finally I graduated to blogging. Not satisfied I felt the need to write a book or two. Who knows what is next?
"Zacharias" is the story of John the Baptist’s younger brother and his journey with Jesus as they try to find John. This is a historical record of a bored young man’s adventure in 1st century Israel. He travels throughout Judea, Samaria, Galilee and the Dead Sea where he finds more than his brother. He finds along the way an adventure that eventually leads him down the path to his new life.
