About this author

Welcome to my Goodreads Author page.

I love honest seekers, reading, writing, and being a son of my Father-God. (Rom. 8:14)

Right now I spend most of my time walking with God, sharing the significance of sabbaticals with Christian leaders and my church family, and writing.

Because I began life as a ward of the state of Massachusetts, I also share with foster parent groups, the importance of their role in forming young lives.

Please visit my Facebook author page as well and "Like" and share it with your friends.

I also enjoy the entire process, not only creating and writing, but editing, designing my covers, and interacting with editors and readers. It's a wonderful, remarkable vocation [I don't consider it a job].(less)
