  It’s been a little more than three years since I hit the publish button on my first book, Summer Storms.

Now, with my fifth … [Read more...]

Jessie and Atlantis

I’m sitting beneath the Space Shuttle Atlantis. My eyes burn and my heart aches with pride and sadness. Our country worked so hard and sacrificed so much to conquer space. There are not words to accurately express the wash of emotions I have felt today. Poignant sadness at the reminders of those we have lost.

Writing Life~Evolution and Me

I have been writing for a long time. I don’t pretend to know anything about what is right and proper, but I trust the Holy Spirit to guide me, and guide He does. The thing is, He steers me this way and that seemingly at random. Randomness turns into synchronicity, synchronicity to evolution. Evolution? Isn’t that a bad word? Evolution is the only word I know that … [Read more...]

A Day of Remembrance

I was in sixth grade at Apollo Elementary when the Challenger exploded. I don’t need a photograph to remember what it looked like that morning. We were in the school parking lot, watching with excitement, and we all knew something had gone terribly wrong. We raced to a teacher’s car and huddled around it, listening to the radio report for several minutes before we were ushered … [Read more...]

What seeds are you planting in your heart

It was my turn to have my bags searched at the Habana, Cuba airport. “This is fresh fruit,” the customs agent said as he pulled out my small bag of organic apples. “You cannot bring these into the country.” I bit my lower lip. What was I thinking? The reason they’re illegal? Neither the peel nor the pulp is a threat, but it’s the apples’ seeds that pose the concern. They can … [Read more...]
