Writing Samples:
Much of my writing - the ones that have survived the editorial wringer anyway - I keep online at writing.com. All the links below take you to individual items in my online portfolio. It’s an eclectic selection, so I’m sure you’ll find something to enjoy. I’ve included the title of the piece as well as a short description.

Selling Me Short: Sometimes God teaches us a lesson in unexpected ways:
Remembering Memorial Day: What does this holiday really mean?
Drabbles (100 word short stories)
Time warped: What’s on the dark side of the moon? (Idea 1)
Beware a Vampire’s Friend: What’s on the dark side of the moon? (Idea 2)
Chased by Numbers: Hunted by the number three.
Bible Monologues (written from the perspective of little-known Biblical characters).
The Adulterer: Why was only the woman accused?
Commander of the Guard: What happened in the furnace changed many lives that day.
The Teacher: Not everyone appreciated the boy questioning the teachers inside the temple.
In with the Crowd: Giving in to popular opinion has its price.
My Forever Stained Hands: From the perspective of a Roman Centurion at Jesus’ crucifixion.
My Way or No Way: the so-called exclusivity of Christianity.
Beauty in a Smile: It’s more than an expression of feeling.
Blessed is He: A simple man with a simple, yet profound faith, reminding me how mine fell short.
It’s a Surprise: Why won’t God tell me his plan for me?
Shattered Dreams: When a heart breaks from a dream that wasn’t.
Of Unknown Category
On the Wings of Smoky Air: An exercise of the senses.
The Challenge: Just what was God thinking?
