Writer. Pastor. Teacher. I have worn all these hats. Now, in retirement, I am concentrating on wearing just one hat, that of writer.


Background Information

I graduated from Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan with a B.A. in Communications, and from Grand Rapids Baptist Seminary with an MDIv. I served as the Assistant Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Flint, Michigan, and as Pastor of First Baptist Church in Oglesby, Illinois. I also taught junior high and high school classes at LaSalle-Peru Christian School in LaSalle, Illinois and at Maranatha Christian School in Columbus, Ohio. Additionally, I taught freshmen classes at Illinois Valley Community College, Oglesby, Illinois.

I began writing while a child in Windsor,Ontario, Canada. I "published" a hand-written newspaper for my family, and later graduated to a printed version when I came into possession of a rubber-type printing press. The gift of a typewriter as a teenager was the ultimate in tools to assist my writing.

A high school English teacher was the first to encourage my desire to write. I joined the staff of the high school newspaper and served as editor until my graduation.

From childhood I have been a reader. I still read about four or five books a month, mostly novels and biographies. I am not certain I can identify one particular author who has influenced me more than others; I get encouragement to write from just about every author I read.

My passion to write remains alive and strong even though I am now retired from active ministry. My desire is to write inspirational books that encourage people to consider the claims of Jesus Christ.

Birth Place
Windsor,  Canada
Accomplishments

In 2004, my manuscript "Windsor's Child," took fourth place in a field of 157 manuscripts in a contest sponsored by a major evangelical publishing company.

Additional Information

I have published three books, "Windsor's Child," "The Foolish Galatians," and "Come, Lord Jesus." A fourth book is now in rewriting. It is a novel called "The Missing Person."
