Author has written 42 stories for Fantasy, War, Life, Fable, Nature, Love, Spiritual, General, Historical, General, Religion, Fantasy, and Family.

It's been far too long since the last time I was here. I guess I've been on hiatus for a while getting more immediate parts of my life all straightened out, but my mentor pointed out the other day that I really should keep up with this site to get feedback and some amount of publicity on my writing. So, here I am, putting my work out there again for everyone to read. Why? Because I am, if nothing else, a poet, looking to share my heart with others. Please read, and let me know where you see weaknesses and where you see strengths. I want to know if my work means something to you. Please feel free to email me if you would like more in-depth comments and response regarding anything posted here. I will not be removing my old work at the moment, but I don't suggest reading it unless you truly want to see how much I've grown as a writer.

Quotes:

"I saw the world through my window, I saw the world on parade, with all of its beauty and all of its power, and all of it fading away. So I'm holding on to nothing less than what's keeping me strong. And it's one true love that keeps me sane, and out of all that I've got the only thing that won't change is this one true love." - Rich Mullins

"And I know sacred ears will listen, and holy hands reach out to touch. How can I keep myself from singing?" -Rich Mullins

"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart." -William Wordsworth

"The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had shed no tears." -The Pool Boys
