The major goals of my writing are to bring honor to Christ and to edify, entertain, and educate readers. My works often highlight historical topics that have become either distorted by political or social bias or have been forgotten among today's general public. One of my major motivations in writing is to help demonstrate that a careful search through the dusty pages of history (augmented by a vivid imagination confined to the framework of real facts) can be every bit as exciting as perusal of the most riveting fantasy novel. Truth, as they say, is indeed stranger than fiction. And by combining careful scholarship with imaginative storytelling, I hope to make truth much more interesting then pure fiction.

Dr. Calvin Schmitt, a burned-out veterinarian with a long neglected interest in medieval history, is accidentally whisked back to the 16th century Mediterranean. Or was it an accident? Cal and his friends are suddenly the major obstacle in the wild scheme of an enigmatic villain intent on changing the world, and must decide if preserving the future they once knew is worth risking their lives in the past. Within these pages you will find carefully researched historical facts centered around the pivotal Battle of Lepanto combined with speculative science fiction, philosophical discussion, relevant debate about the religious wars between the east and west, quirky humor, and page-turning storytelling. I hope to have this out by 2016.(less)

The answer depends a lot on what I'm writing. For my current book its a mixture of movie soundtracks, old rock songs about time travel, muppet songs, and the theme from Shaun the sheep. (less)

“The truly noble heart sacrifices itself for others’ good, to defend the weak and the good against evil. To a heart like this, a heart devoted to chivalry, courage is a matter of form.”
J. Aaron Gruben

“When we are in Christ His goals are now our goals, and we are to be busy with his work on earth.”
J. Aaron Gruben, King: A Christian's Call to Imitate Christ's Kingship

“Sometimes God speaks to a man in a whisper… But sometimes His Spirit explodes in a man suddenly, lighting up in shocking crimson brilliance the cowardly and sullied things he’s let his drowsy soul become mired in, and bringing unlooked for tears at the glimpse of the man he ought to have been all along. With that despairing realization the astounding truth blossoms like a bursting field of wildflowers or a brilliant new dawn shooting from the peak of a dark hill, that because of Christ’s work for him, he can change.”
J. Aaron Gruben, King: A Christian's Call to Imitate Christ's Kingship

“Feelings come and feelings go,
And feelings are deceiving;
My warrant is the Word of God--
Naught else is worth believing.

Though all my heart should feel condemned
For want of some sweet token,
There is One greater than my heart
Whose Word cannot be broken.

I'll trust in God's unchanging Word
Till soul and body sever,
For, though all things shall pass away,
HIS WORD SHALL STAND FOREVER!”
Martin Luther
