I am a seminary graduate, Bible teacher, article writer, Published Christian fiction author and former publisher of the Inspirational Success Tips ezine, my articles for which now form my self-help book, "Principles of the Kingdom, God's Success Principles."

I was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on June 8, 1943 to Christian parents and accepted Jesus as my Savior at an early age, though I doubted later.

I was an avid reader, especially interested in stories about other time periods and science fiction. In Jr. High school, I became interested in writing and drama. I wrote several poems, articles and a few short stories, plays and novelettes.


While in Jr. College, I won second prize in a short story contest with a Biblical short story.
I graduated from Clearwater Christian College in 1970, with a B.A. degree in Bible-literature, and Biblical Seminary in Hatfield, PA, in 1974 with a M.Div.
I was ordained in November of 1974, and served as assistant or associate pastor in several churches. I also served in a foreign student ministry, where I met my dear wife, Berenice from Venezuela. It was there also that I began expanding my Biblical short story into a novel.
Following our marriage in 1984, we spent a year and a half in Venezuela, where, while teaching English, I also began work on a purposeful time travel novel. Upon returning from Venezuela, I completed and revised my Biblical novel, "OF SUCH IS THE KINGDOM," which was published on September 7th, 2003. The time travel novel, "IMPOSSIBLE JOURNEY, A Tale of Times and Truth" was published 2 years later.

I was in a bad car accident in Dec.2009 and had to quit my part time job. I completely revised and expanded my first Biblical novel, and the print version is now divided into two separate volumes.

This year (2014) I wrote my 5th book, "The Christmas Victory, A Gem of A Sermon, All Wrapped Up in a Historical Novel."
