I am retired from full-time ministry but share with another retireee in serving a small church. I'm in my 50th year as a minister. I'm now serving as a part time police chaplain. I help out where I can at a local church and I see my writing as an extension of the ministry.

Background Information

I wrote and delivered a lot of sermons and was surprised when I discovered the gift of poetry. In 3 years I have written over 350 poems -- and some of them are even good. The poem which got me started was about my father giving me a desk. It was a very emotional poem and it has the title, "The Old Metal Desk." This book has been published by AuthorHouse and is available at a bookstore near you. I had a book published several years ago -- "Getting Fired Up. Devotions for the Christian Athlete." I have a crazy sense of humor and puns. My writing will combine religious, humor and social commentary. I do not like Christian poems that are just the repeating of sugar-coated sayings. I want to see it go into what it means to follow Jesus to the poor, hungry, outcast, etc.

Birth Place
Lathrop, MO US
Additional Information

My first book of poetry is ready to be ordered on line from the publisher or at a bookstore near you. They probably won't have it on the shelves but can order it for you. This book, "The Old Metal Desk" come from the first poem I wrote in March 2007. You may order it at:
