Trinity found her dream guy...
but there's a killer in her nightmares.
Trinity was just like any other eighteen year old. She wished that she could have a decent boyfriend. And she met one in the most weirdest way. Dan Devlin. Her arch enemy's son. The lawyer who let Rafe got away.
Actually, Trinity could dream walk. She had been avoiding her special ability until one day, she saw a girl, Kiri, being murdered.… Continue

Where did 2008 go?
Though the year has flown by, it was an amazing year for me. And God deserves all the glory for it!
One of my New Year's resolutions for 2008 was to read (and study) the entire Bible during the course of the year. That one decision had a profound impact on my life this year.
God's Word is living and active. It reveals who God is and His plan of redemption from the beginning of time. Reading it and making… Continue

I'm about to begin the next part of my journey into the world of writing. This next leg of the trip will be the tedious process of revisions and self-editing.
Quite honestly, I'm looking forward to this next step. I've not looked at my manuscript since NaNoWriMo because the trip and the holidays, so I'm eager (in some ways at least) to look at it.
I have a few blog posts planned on what I've learned about the editing and revision process from various writer friends, but this… Continue

All children love the fantastic: some carry that love through to adulthood. I guess I fall into that category. The first books that I read were fairly atypical of my generation: Enid Blyton (the Famous Five and Adventure series in particular); various mystery series (The Three Investigators, the Hardy Boys and (perhaps a portent of things to come) Nancy Drew. I devoured Marvel comics. The first to really make an impression on me were Ray Bradbury, particularly his gothic short stories, and Alan… Continue

I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought it was a completely true story, but Glenn explains at the end that while it was a true story, he novelized his experiences and condensed them into this book. Whatever the reason, the Christmas Sweater is a must-read story of faith and forgiveness.
Eddie's father has died and his mother works 4 jobs to provide for him. As Christmas approaches, all he wants is a bike. What he finds under the tree instead, is a… Continue

I liked this book more than I thought I would. I figured it would be some tabloid-esque piece of trivia. What I found, instead, was a thoughtful book written by a loving mother. Lynne shares her story and that of her famous family. She shares the ups and downs as well as her fears.
An incredibly easy book to read and while somewhat shallow and trivial, I came away with the impression that Lynne was very naive and trusting when it came to allowing… Continue

I'm delighted to be able to interview my writer friend, Lenora Worth, on WordVessel today. I just have to insert a personal note here. Lenora has had a bigger impact on my life than she could ever realize.
In June 2008 I attended my second writer's conference at East Texas Baptist University. It was there that I met Lenora. She was one of the speakers, and I had scheduled some one-on-one time with her to talk to her about being a… Continue

Who else knows what you are thinking?
Ethan has a double life. He was not just any normal teenage schoolboy. He was the named, people destined to be Guardians of Time, the Guard in short. The Guard had existed basically because of the Order of Chaos. The Order travelled back in time to alter the past which would allow their leader, the Goddes of Chaos, to reign supreme. All the Guard simply had to do was to stop… Continue

It's a matter of life or death.
Everyone wants to me be noticed in a way or two. No ones likes to be ignored. Charlotte Usher was
a very good example. See the 'was'? Because this poor girl had died right on the first day of school. And unfortunately, on her path to fame! She got it planning all summer to attract the attention of Damen Dylan. The hot, sporty and gentlemanly guy every girl desire. And he… Continue
