Many of us, myself included, have suffered through difficult childhoods. It is with greater clarity that we are able to evaluate our past from an adult perspective. Though we may be cognizant of the root of our pain, our childhood experiences were tightly woven into the cloth that made us who we are today; they are imbedded in the…Continue

Zealous? or Jealous?
As we continue our look at love in 1 Corinthians 13 we come a across a fascinating Greek word, “Zēlōō”. What makes this word so interesting is that it can be translated either “Zealous”, or “Jealous”,
depending on the context it is used in. “Zēlōō” is defined as “Warm feeling for or against”. What
starts out positive can end up negative. How might that be on your mountain?
It’s been said that all of man’s accomplishments are the result of…Continue

More work to do on "Where Did My Sand Castle Go?" I got my edits back from my peer reviewers. Bottom line (or to make a long story short), I don't know as much about tides as I thought I did. But, I've got some valuable information now. I'll rework the story again...

A Rare Quality You Have
A cursory look at human history reveals that there is has always been a dearth of a quality fellow
Mountain Taker that you and I possess in abundance. This characteristic is so needed, and yet in such short supply that an insurance company here in the United States has actually tried to set itself apart from its competitors with a branding campaign built around it, entitled, “Doing the Right Thing”. Various
organizations, even Hollywood, have…

In the midst of the horror and carnage she finds out what it means to be a friend, a lover, a Christian - a human being. This unfortunate era in US history is well researched yet never pedantic.…Continue

It’s an old line. You must suffer for your art. It’s been said by famous artists and struggling students alike. Is it true? It can be. For me, the moment that was suffering on what felt like a cataclysmic level occurred in the summer of 2004. I was recently divorced, and was just settling into my own place. I loved living alone, and I spent every minute I could on my novel, The Veiled Mirror. It started out in first person, as it is now. But while listening to my classmates in a…Continue

Suzy Prudden and I have written books without complete outlines and we have written books with complete outlines. I can assure you that working from a comprehensive outline that you and the publisher and editor have agreed on before hand is better than working from a verbal agreement with no outline. A good outline guides you. It lets the publisher know exactly what you’re going to do before the fact, so there is no chance of a misunderstanding that could cost you your advance. Without an…Continue
