From the moment I learned to write,
it became an obsession.

I kept a journal, created stories, wrote speeches, essays and church plays. When I was in school, I often entered story or speech writing contests and I usually placed in the top four. In college, I had one professor tell me that she wanted an autographed copy of my first book.

Now that my children are on their own, I am returning to my passion and maybe one day soon, I will be able to send my professor an autographed copy of my first book (which I am seeking to get published). It is a collection of biblically-based first-person accounts of the events surrounding the Nativity by the main participants.  It is divided into three sections by geography:

  • Bethlehem
  • Jerusalem
  • The Far East (the magi)

Each section has an introduction to set the stage and the devotional theme, three or four short stories that amplify the theme, a conclusion to draw it together and make applications to our life today.

Stay tuned for more information as the journey to publication unfolds.
