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 romance is a favorite 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 the 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...

“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 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
