Welcome to my site!

Click around and get to know me: Check out my award-winning novel and other publications under Books, read my literary study of biblical imagery under the Motifs button, and glean bits of personal news and musing under Engage — where you can also chat with me.

As you browse my life and writing on these pages, I hope you'll read something that sounds strangely familiar to you. After all, my goal as a writer is only to share my illustration of a true old story you might have heard before, perhaps long ago . . .

"Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll... I know that my Redeemer lives." (Job 19: 23-25 NIV)
