Kingdom Writer, Word Warrior and Novelist; that is how I describe my literary gifting. I am hardwired for writing stories and anything that glorifies my God. My mantra; Jesus The Christ is author and finisher of my faith and my fiction.

Although historical and romance novels are favorites of mine, I write multiple genres about all sorts of things that inspire, inform, and entertain. I also write non fiction articles and books. The one constant in my writing is to point to Father God by way of human interest or experience. I'm an avid reader with a variety of other interests.

Triple Crown Fever

I like horses. They are third on my list of favorite animals.  Though I’m not a gambler by nature I do love watching horse races. I have never bet any money on a horse but I get just as enthusiastic as the people with the big bucks on the line. I pick my favorites and cheer them on with the passion of a woman with her life saving in the balance. I was woefully dashed when California Chrome was sid

I get the futuristic storyline but the story, as written, wasn't holding my interest for some reason. The writing style was not speaking to me like a novel usually does. I read far enough into it to realize it was not going to get any better. Actuall ...more

Good biblical back up and information. A research book that should be followed through with the readers own research.

I've read a lot of the Kinsey Millhone series and enjoyed them all. This novel was a good plot but dragged on too long and with less than a satisfying ending. The simultaneous plots were a good idea but it was not well connected at the end. It was li ...more

“The rest of my life is going to be the Best of my life!”
Marlene Banks

“You never can tell what two people in love will do or how things will turn out. What they say and what they do can be very different from what they feel. How they act often makes no logical sense.”
Marlene Banks, Son of a Preacherman

“I don't anxiously take in what people say about other people and judge them solely on that basis. I measure a person by how they treat me and what I see in their character.”
Marlene Banks, Son of a Preacherman

“The rest of my life is going to be the Best of my life!”
Marlene Banks

“The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time.”
Francis Chan

“If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don't, they never were.”
Kahlil Gibran

“Chance is perhaps the pseudonym of God when he does not want to sign.”
Théophile Gautier

“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
C.S. Lewis
