Welcome to Day 6 of GENTLE JOURNEY's Tag Team posting. Today you'll have the privilege, if you can call it that, of going to my site and reading my post.
First, a little about me. At nearly 56 years old I'm still a red head, although I have less hair now. And the beard in that picture is gone too. I love reading and writing, especially things that are filled with action and drama. Jeffery Deaver is one of my very favorite mystery writers, because he includes forensics into his stories. In fact the Lincoln Rhyme novels are built around that very thing. I also like him because he's a humble man and has been one of my chief supporters as I've been writing. That's not to say I don't like greats like Terri Blackstock and Brandilyn Colliins. I do. In fact I feel a closeness (in the Lord mind you) with Terri.
I've been married for almost 35 years to the same wonderful woman. Barbara Ann means the world to me. I think I've been mostly an annoyance to her. Everytime I'd write something, short story, article, poem, whatever, she'd say, "So, when are you going to get it published?" Well, I finally got something published. THE 3RD COVENANT has its rough spots, but is a really great premier novel. We have 2 grown children. Brent and his wife Laura, are preparing for the mission field with Pioneer Bible Translators. Right now they're in Dallas, TX with their 2 kids (Yup, I'm a grandfather) getting ready to take courses in linguistics and other related subjects as preparation to entering the field. (If you'd like to support them email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll get you their address and some information about that). Carrie, the younger of the 2 has her Masters in Deaf Education and has spent the last year teaching pre-school deaf children. She'll be re-locating to the Boston area in the near future. We're proud of both my kids.
In addition to this I'm a retired correctional officer who now works part time as a library clerk, a licensed minister, and, oh yeah, a published author. Okay, "tag" your it. Go to my site, Christian Mystery Writers and read my review of GENTLE JOURNEY there. You can "tag" me by leaving a comment. Don't forget to come back here for a wrap up of the tour and some surprises.
