I have dabbled in writing most of my life, having a love affair with words from grade school. I've produced a lot, but published a little. My bent is writing is memoir--Where God gets the glory of the story. I have published these three memoirs:

In 2014, I published a 301-page book called Forgive Like a Rwandan: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Letting Go. Then in 2018, I published a fun book of 127 pages called Coast-to-Coast-to-Coast: My journey into the Land of Fahrvergnugen.

My third work is a 693-page biography called: The Dash between the Dates: A Narative of my First Seventy Years. This book has taken on a life of its own in Digital Form.

I am in process of writing a fourth book, a work of fiction, with the working title of So great a Cloud of Witnesses. You can check out the four books on the links below.


I have written a lot over the years; university papers, journals, church newsletters,
newspaper articles, missionary material, and many things for my personal enjoyment.

At times I am discouraged and my passion for writing wanes. Here is my rant about Christian writing.
