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 little. Since I retired as pastor, I have more time to pursue my passion. My bent is writing is memoir--Where God gets the glory of the story.

In 2014, I self-published a 400-page book called Forgive Like a Rwandan: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Letting Go. Then in 2018, I published a fun book called Coast-to-Coast-to-Coast: My journey into the Land of Fahrvergnugen.

I am now in the process of completing a 700-page work called: Three Score and Ten: A Narative of my First Seventy Years. You can check out the three 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.
