Life is a journey to achieving all that God has planned for us, to serving our Father through serving others, to constantly grow and develop in who we are as Christians so that we can walk in the fullness of our authority as believers.
My wife of over forty-five years and I live in North Texas. We have five children, the oldest of whom is in heaven, one grandson and an ever increasing number of grandcats.
I have a bachelor’s degree in American history, and a master’s degree in social work. For almost thirty years I worked for the State of Rhode Island, most of it in public child welfare where I honed my writing skills preparing concise and accurate court reports and petitions. I retired in 1999 to work in ministry with Kenneth Copeland Ministries.
My writing background includes policies and procedures as well as training curriculum and skits for both the state and the ministry.
I am also a trainer and public speaker, having led Bible studies, trained employees, and taught families in the areas of financial planning.
I write to fulfill a lifelong yearning that became a divine inspiration after complications from heart surgery nearly brought me to heaven. My mission is to write in such a way that my words bring glory to God and give hope, encouragement and entertainment to his readers.
I work steadily to improve my craft. I’ve completed four years of courses with the Christian Writers Guild. I am currently a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, and North Texas Christian Writers where I serve as Associate Director. I attend conferences, workshops and retreats seeking knowledge from the best Christian writers. I also lead online and local critique groups. One of the areas I most enjoying working in is mentoring and coaching other writers, helping them to become the best writer they can be.
I am available for speaking, teaching, ghostwriting, collaborating, and editing.
