Nehemiah's Story, Your Challenge

Can you feel it? The anticipation has been mounting. The excitement has been rising. We’ve been holding our collective breath. Now it’s time to get to work. 

Over the last, few weeks, we’ve been using the lens of Nehemiah to see that when we work together, it can change how a generation sees God....

Grand Beast Book 1 The Bear by Heidi Fisk

Grand Beast: Book 1: The Bear

Grand Beast: The Bear is now up on Amazon.

Master of Madhouse Sadists, Mansions and Mayhem 1894 (The Fergus She Book 2) by Cheryl R. Cowtan
As an author, I sometimes wonder who would best play the roles in my novels.

I recently watched an enjoyable comedy called The Nice Guys. In the movie was this actor I like, but I've never taken the time to find out his name. I was thinking he'd make a fabulous groundsman in Master of Madhouse, b... Read more of this blog post »

HolohiveTo be honest, at first I didn’t intend to write a sequel to Doomware. The ending was supposed to be abrupt and ambiguous, leaving readers to decide in their imaginations what happened next.
