He is the author of three clean Christian thrillers, Fatal Illusions, its sequel, The Tenth Plague, and his latest, Kill Order (Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas). A print journalism major in college, he works full-time from home as a book editor after serving in editorial roles for more than twenty-five years.

Check them out in "Partners in Crime" or "By the Prickling of My Thumbs." These are great reads, by the way. (less)

She is a wonderful wordsmith, and I loved her prose. But this plot just dragged and dragged. Reach for O Pioneers before this one, even before My Antonia, any day. You won't be disappointed. I didn't care so much for this one.

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
Maurice Switzer, Mrs. Goose, Her Book

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Leif Enger
“When a person dies, the earth is generally unwilling to cough him back up. A miracle contradicts the will of earth.”
Leif Enger, Peace Like a River

Bill O'Reilly
“In reference to the search for Lincoln's killers as it took to the Maryland swamps:

"The method of searching the swamps is simple yet arduous. First, the troops assemble on the edge of bogs with names like Allen’s Creek, Scrub Swamp, and Atchall’s Swamp, standing at loose attention in the shade of a thick forest of beech, dogwood, and gum trees. Then they form two lines and march straight forward, from one side to the other. As absurd as it seems to the soldiers, marching headlong into cold mucky water, there is no other way of locating Booth and Herold. Incredibly, eighty-seven of these brave men will drown in their painstaking weeklong search for the killers.”
Bill O'Reilly, Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever

J.C. Ryle
“Do nothing that you would not like God to see. Say nothing you would not like God to hear. Write nothing you would not like God to read. Go no place where you would not like God to find you. Read no book of which you would not like God to say, "Show it to Me."
Never spend your time in such a way that you would not like to have God say, "What are you doing?”
J.C. Ryle
