Ayon Baxter (Abdiel)

Biography

Ayon Baxter, also known as Abdiel, born in St. Mary, Jamaica W. I. is the third child and first son for Ethlyn Wilson; one out of seven.

A scientist by heart, he has worked in the fields of Electronics and Telecommunications for over 25 years. He is also a musician, songwriter, and vocalist, and enjoys many genres of music, but lives mostly in the domain of Christian Gospel. He also loves reading and..., yes, you guessed right, loves to write. For many years, he has had this dream of becoming an author, and as a result, he could not resist the urge to write the many articles he has written--most of which are still unpublished.

His mother, a devout Christian of humble beginnings, has lived most of her life through economical, social, and spiritual struggles, yet, with unyielding faith, she holds firmly to the hope of glory to come in Christ Jesus; for she looks for a city, which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Her strong Christian convictions, firm discipline, and continual prayers for her children, have greatly shaped Abdiel's life, and have eventually influenced his decision to choose to walk the path of righteousness in Jesus Christ.

He too, has had his struggles and fights in this world. Ayon grew up in a Christian religious home. However, there were problems at home and as soon as the door of opportunity to leave home was opened, "he flew coup" as they would say. He sampled the ways of the world as he drifted little by little away from shore of safety into the sea of confusion, selfishness, and greed. Nevertheless, He had a praying mother and undoubtedly some other caring relatives and concerned friends, who continued to lift him up in prayers to God.

One day, like the 'Prodigal Son', he came to his senses and considered how empty and unfulfilling the ways of the world was, and he desired something more to live for. That is when the spirit of the Lord turned his mind and heart to God who gave the answer to his longing heart. He observed that this world had very little to offer--comparing it to the multitude of unmatched blessings in God's outstretched hands--he has turned away from its temporal glitters and sparkles, looking in faith to the eternal home of glory.

The rough experiences he has had, God has used only to shape and polish him according to His will, honour, and glory. As he continues to fight with his fingers, pen and voice, he fights the good fight of faith, and encourages others to unite with him, in this army of Jesus Christ, triumphantly winning battles over sin, by God's grace in the righteousness of Christ.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started to write short stories and religious articles on Christianity in the early 2000s.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is not yet published. The title of my latest book is "identity. Who am I?" In this book I expose the falsity in the common concept of a construed identity, while exposing the reader to his or her real non-construed default identity with an option to exchange to the original and better one.
