I, John is available now!

Jacket_PerfectBound_Rev1I, John is available now! You can order it clothbound or paperback, and you can have it today in eBook format to read on your iPad or Nook or other device. Here are links to booksellers already listing the title:


Barnes and Noble

Apple iBook Store (iTunes)

More links will be available soon, as additional stores offer it, and I will try to keep updating the links as the title makes it’s way into the system. The world of publishing and books is fascinating. It is like a house that has been built over many years, and some parts take a little longer to reach.

Hopefully, I, John will be listed in the next few days by more local independent booksellers on Indiebound.org and other sites, and I would be delighted to add links to any independent booksellers listing the title as available, either on the shelf or to order. If your local bookstore does not have I, John on the shelf and you would like to order it from them, giving them the ISBNs would be the easiest way for them to find it:

ISBN 978-0-9906426-9-5 — Clothbound (6x9in)

ISBN 978-0-9906426-1-9 — Trade Paperback (5.25x8in)

ISBN 978-0-9906426-0-2 — e-Book (except the Kindle version only carries the Amazon ASIN of B00N43YCKO)

I, John has also just now been added to Goodreads.com so if you like the novel (or if you hate it, though I really hope you like it,) please take a moment add a review—here’s a link to the Goodreads page.

Thanks to all of the people who have shown such interest in this novel! I hope that you enjoy it.

Sister Fox and the Dark Closet

A new e-book version of Sister Fox and the Dark Closet should be available within a day or two. Lauren, who illustrated it, has added more of her delightful artwork.

If you already have a copy of the e-book, you might want to delete it and download a new one in the next few days.

Meanwhile, an honest-to-goodness hold-in-your-hand and read-to-a-wee-child (or to a not-so-wee-person) version will coming soon as well.

Though, really, having a whole library on a device you can hold in your hands is still amazing, don’t you think?


Excerpts – I, John and Sins of Omission

There are now excerpts from two upcoming novels posted on the website.


I, John  Of this disciple, Jesus had said, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?” Suppose that John did, indeed remain, and is still alive, in our world, two thousand years later. What would he be doing, thinking, after all this time, and would he be alone?

Bird On WaterSins of Omission  A body is found, a girl who was murdered. Now the residents of this eastern North Carolina town must try to find out what is happening around them, before it happens again.


Both novels, along with a few other projects, will be available soon.


Welcome and Thanks

Welcome to this website and to this journal page.

Over the days to come I am planning to post a lot of material that has already been read or heard by people in different settings – small groups, church settings, sometimes just in a conversation with friends. I hope you will enjoy it.

More importantly, I hope that you will be able to take something useful from here that you did not have when you came.

Thanks for reading!
