When I’m not promoting or working on a book, I like to jot down some musings here, some unsolicited writing advice, contemplations of art and philosophy, and anything in between.

Why Do We Call Simon Peter?

Why do we call Simon Peter? What do we often get wrong about him? Is he the Gospels’ protagonist or the most picked on disciple?

Who Are You In The Book of Job

What do you say to someone who experiences total devastation? What answer do we have to seemingly senseless suffering? What consolation can be given to someone who cannot forgive themselves?

A Lawyer At The Judgement Seat

According to Cohen’s model of adult human development, a common theme of individuals as they approach or enter their mid 60s to 70s or retirement age is that of reflection. But not just any reflection. Deep introspection, a shifting in one’s own priorities, a taking inventory of regrets of things not done and even guilt…

The Attack on Beauty: Halloween And Humanity’s Inner Dissonace

This gentleman, Huey, shared how he always…

Why Dystopia Rocks – Top 5 Books On Shepherd

It’s a rather strange thing to see so many readers and writers develop a morbid taste for books that have to deal with social disintegration or manmade totalitarianism.
