Hi. I'm an ecumenical Christian poet, writer, poetry editor, and Bible consultant, who writes Bible-based projects in all genres, helps other poets and writers for a minimal fee through my website and Kindle e-books, writes about poetry on the Poetry Editor & Poetry blog, manages the Christian Poets & Writers group on Facebook, writes about various aspects of writing and living In a Christian Writer's Life, and reviews new translations, study Bibles, Bible storybooks, and children's editions of the Bible on the Bible Reviewer blog. I'm also on LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter and am glad to connect with Christian poets, writers, editors, and publishers. May God bless you and your work in Jesus' Name.
Besides working with other poets for years through my poetry course, critiques, and website, I'm an active poet with two traditionally published books of poems - Living in the Nature Poem and Outside Eden with my children's book, Beach Songs tbp soon

Christian Writer's Guide e-book
This Kindle e-book came from 30+ years of writing in all genres for Christian and educational publishers, leading workshops, and working with other writers through critiques of their short manuscripts, children's picture books, and book proposals.
Living in the Nature Poem e-book
Living in the Nature Poem, published in print in 2012 by the environmentally aware publisher, Hiraeth Press, is now available as an e-book on Kindle.
My hope is that people who love the Bible but don't read poetry will discover they like poetry after all, and people who love poetry but don't read the Bible will want to read both.

Job transfers took my family and I around the country for several years, so I had the joy of becoming part of most mainline Protestant and Roman Catholic churches, which gave me an ecumenical view and strong interest in church unity in the Body of Christ.
