Born in the Southwest, I have lived all over the US and spent many years in the Caribbean. I'm a people-watcher and a comparative thinker who is fascinated with words, art, and ideas.
I have a passion to share spiritual life in a way that allows the reader to weigh the values of different ideologies from a non-threatening perspective (a favorite reading chair). My heart is best expressed in the article Science Fiction . . . and our Brokenness .
My new series -- Scions of the Aegean C -- is written in the "steampunk" genre (a sub-genre of Scifi) and book one is available right here on Smashwords.
GATEKEEPER, SOJOURNER, AND SWORDSMAN
Three ordinary men, who by their everyday obedience to Christ, play active roles in the fulfillment of God’s will for human history.
Together, these three novels demonstrate the fruit of persevering faithfulness and the dangers of being focused on anything other than Jesus Christ. The lives of the people in GATEKEEPER, SOJOURNER, and SWORDSMAN intersect as increasing pressure refines and defines their characters.
Two young women have vanished and not even their kidnappers know where they are. Shaye had childhood fantasies about finding the legendary Exiles and walking among them in the place her people called "the land of cloud and leaf." But this isn't at all what she imagined.
What Mama Never Told You About the Afterlife contains a hyper-linked topical index so readers can search and click on point-by-point comparisons and examples that will help them comprehend the gulf between what proponents say about Universalism and what Scripture says.
Are all faiths one, or is there only one faith? Regardless of your thoughts on the "end times," SWORDSMAN will challenge you to consider the focus of your hope, and ask yourself if you have faith that endures. This book isn't about when Christians leave . . . it's about how they live.
SOJOURNER examines the question: What if all the popular predictions about the fate of the world are wrong?
A "must read" for those who enjoy adventure, high stakes, and intelligent fiction. The intrigue of SOJOURNER is found first in its captivating characters, and then in an unfolding epic of unbalanced power, destruction, and victory. SOJOURNER is Book 2 in the Fellowship of the Mystery trilogy
Readers will need to remind themselves that GATEKEEPER was published years before the events of 9/11 or the current political and economic crises.
As GATEKEEPER opens, America teeters on the brink of chaos. Polarization continues while an increasingly angry populace lives on the edge of poverty and secret power struggles threaten to spill over into violence on an unprecedented scale.
The spacecraft named "Aegean C" crashed on an unknown planet a century ago. Descendents of those who survived live on using a fascinating mix of old-world tech and secret recipes. Attempts to end clashes of culture and power struggles have resulted in a society where few, if any, feel truly free. Will the Fifth Generation see a return of the unrest that nearly ended the colony years ago?
