There are some people in this world who make the impossible not only look possible, but show each of us that nothing is impossible if you are willing to make the effort and commit yourself to never quit. One such person as this is Mandy Harvey. She was born with hearing, but lost it when she was 1 ... View More

 
A Book Revival And Resurrection
Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 2:03pm

After much thought and consideration I've decided to take the time and go back through all of the novels I've already written and both improve them, as well as possibly even expand them, change up how they exist in their respective universes and so on.  What will come out of this is a m ...

Monday, June 12th, 2017 11:14pm

I had an interesting topic come up recently with a fellow author who was also working on a book.  His discussion was that he'd hit a really bad case of writer's block and didn't know how to get out.  It brought back some memories to me of times I've been blocked while writi ... View More

For those of you who know me, you know how much I love auctions, the thrill of the chase and the deal of the day.  Auctions are a blast and make great entertainment.  Plus you never know what you'll find there.  That's why I'm posting these three videos as I think they absolutely fit my love of a ...

Saturday, June 10th, 2017 8:27pm

One of the things I find interesting about writing is how often it intersects with the realities of life.  For example, many of you may not know that recently, back on April 26th I lost my mom to dementia.  It's been a rough several weeks since then, but through it all God has sustaine ...

A young man once sat quietly in his dinning room looking at a table full of bills before him. On them were stamped many things, including "past due", "last notice", and "shutoff notice". It wasn't as if he refused to pay them. Deep, deep down in his heart he wanted ... View More
