Divine Intervention from the Start


Background Information

I was born in a small Illinois town near St. Louis.  I got the opportunity to accept Jesus into my heart because of the influence of my foster parents when I was 17. My mother instilled a love of reading into me and my sister during early childhood, but I did not become an avid reader until my time in foster care. It served as a good escape from the pressures of living with strange families. I read mostly science fiction, military history, and encyclopedias then. I continue to be an active reader to this day, but I read about a lot more things now. I joined the United States Marine Corps after graduating high school. I served as an aircraft radio technician for most of my enlistment. I was given the opportunity to visit the United Arab Emirates, France, Spain, and Japan during my time in the military. I just fell madly in love with Japan during my six month stay there in 1995. Ever since then, I have read everything that I can grab on Japan and its culture. I received a bachelors degree in creative writing and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. I currently live in Niigata, Japan, with my beautiful princess of a wife, Kiyomi. I write Biblical speculative fiction. I believe that no matter how far down the technology road that we travel, we will always need Jesus' forgiveness and guidance.
