How did you come to know Jesus as your Savior?
On January 18th, 1993. My college roommate Jim Klier had been praying for me for like 16 years. The Holy Spirit kept knocking on my door, telling me there was something better out there than the Les Graham way of life.
Tell us about your latest book(s). What do want your readers to take away after the last page?
I currently have a 2 part series. Jude’s Gentle Giants and the sequel Surrendering the Reins. The 1st book is about Jude Bonner a high school kid with a dream of owning a Percheron draft horse. Through hard work, faith, and determination God allows Jude to own 2 Percherons. It’s a coming of age story for both Jude and his horses Pete and Joe. Surrendering the Reins takes Jude out of high school into adult life with Pete and Joe and marriage, work, and adult responsibilities.
Can you share with us a favorite book you have read?
Where the Red Fern Grows
Can you share with us a Genesis 5020 in your life?
When the devil was in control I was into porn, and self-promotion, with plenty of imagination. God has taken my imagination and allowed me to write a story that GLORIFIES him. God has healed me of porn! God has blessed me with my stories touching the souls of all ages especially young teens.
Thanks so much for sharing that with us and we are praising God with you that you have been set free. Our God is so good.

Pete and Joe the main (horses) characters in both books I personally own. They are 9 yrs old and I bought them when they were 6 months old. I trained them to ride and drive. They go to local book signings with me. My books have been on National TV – RFD-TV ran a ½ hour special 3 times about my books, that can be seen on my website.
Thanks for visiting with my readers. I pray God will use your writing journey to bless many others.
