I live in Australia and have been a christian since 1973. I married my sweetheart from high school, and we are still going strong. I have three adult children. Writing has been the way I like to think about and reflect on life and the world, but much of what I have written has stayed hidden until the last few years. My favorite Bible verse is Ezra 7:10, because what it says about Ezra is true about me. My passion is to write about the issues of life and what the scriptures have to say about them. My burden is to encourage Christians to take the time to read their Bibles and to discover the Lord behind the words. I want to write for Jesus - not money - and also want to encourage other Christian writers to do the same. But, it is okay to be paid for what you do if you can.
