God gives each of us a pathway to follow, a divine choice of which way to turn, given moments which create us into something we never imagined
A few years ago, I drove past my childhood home: a simplistic place where childhood memories still resided deep inside me. I remembered playing in the yard during hot summer nights with a best friend, the neighbors next door, my sister, my spirited pets, and my wanted girlfriend across the street. Endless, steamy nights watching July 4th fireworks, eating homemade ice cream on the front porch, and going to the local lake seemed just like yesterday-- such innocent moments of playful youth. This snapshot relaxed me, comforted me, and carried me where I longed to stay among a busy, modern life. It served as the idea behind Sons In The Clouds.
I write because I love the power behind words, how they cling to people in dramatic, positive ways, and live deep inside us all, no matter if written or spoken. I believe in exposing emotional drama so that a storyline is both believable and exceptionally REAL. The belief in God serves as the problem-solver, a pathway to the truth, a light to be used when the problems of man cannot be solved, and a way of exposing weakness in those appearing to be strong.
Most inspirational fiction readers today are not looking for a G-rated book, rather one which is modern-thinking while encompassing a spiritual theme which leaves them carrying a significant message after the final page is finished. My goal is to leave readers with a positive outcome, a hope for the future, and a belief that all people have a deep desire to be good, no matter our differences.
I look forward to sharing my writing with you. I live in Dallas, Texas where the weather is unpredictable, the Dallas Cowboys are hunting another victory, and my mind is always spinning another story to be told.
All of us have characters and tales yearning to be shared.
