All of God's sons will have pierced ears. When questioned by the Pharisees, Jesus stated plainly that the first and foremost commandment is "You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. To walk as sons is to walk in a divine lineage.
It is Christ's own nature that is formed in them. Paul stated that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. All of God's sons learn to put on the new man, created in the likeness of God in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
Old Church Ghosts - Special Edition
Owing to an inherited illness I am now classed as legally disabled, and will soon be housebound as my illness progresses. Our family consists of me, my wife, Linda, our five children, and my stepson. We are a cat family, and have several rescued furry family members, as well as four dogs.
Before my injury, I used to be an avid gardener, and for many years grew Fuchsias. I used to be a reasonable amateur photographer for many years, and rarely went anywhere with a camera close. The story was about a young couple making love on a bus on their way home. Four years ago I had what was to become my most popular ghost story published on line — The Old Church ghosts — was published in a special Halloween edition of Vintage Script magazine.
I think I got my first thought of being a writer when I was about 6. The first book I read — The Silver Sword — made a huge impact on me. In the time in between life took over until my injury four years ago, when I became disabled with a torn tendon; it was then I started to rethink my approach to writing. Do you have a preferred genre?
The Encantadas and Other Stories (eBook)
I prefer to think of my stories as spiritual stories, they are more about lost souls trying to come to peace, than scaring people. I also wrote a series of PI stories which were praised by a former Queensland police sergeant, and my short Medieval story To Elfenmere was praised by a lady with a BA in medieval studies. I love nature in all its forms, when I thought I was going to die — Christmas — my view on life changed. Little things people take for granted, wind on your face, rain, and listening to birds talking came to mean a lot more to me.
I am not against any religion, but I am against people who try to force their views on me. I am not racist, but I believe jobs should go to people who have lived, and worked in the area; not to any foreigner who can undercut the wage structure the unions fought for. I am an advocate for natural healing, and using herbs in cooking. Books come top of my list.
My hit series of seven books — Forgestriker — is about the struggles of a group of soldiers sent on what was to be an easy journey. The aim was to set up a radar station on a distant planet to track a rogue ship. The story starts in Sons of Baal with the men fighting a rear guard action, and boarding Forgestriker, to find out her controls have been so badly damaged in the fighting, they cannot be altered from a course set for dead space.

Tell us about it … or even the top 3. The best seller by a long way is the second book in the series — Forgestriker — probably because it bears the same name as the series. My second best seller is the opening book in the series — Sons of Baal with 69 sales, and the third best seller is the third book in the series Return of the Lost with 24 sales.
Here I am at the edge: July
To give you a comparison, my top book at Amazon - Holding Richmond - has sold 38 copies in three years. There were many reason for my move, not the least is the constant trouble changing covers for my books. On D2D, and Kobo, if I change a cover the work is done in an hour, on Amazon I have to unload the book, then reload the complete package. Even then I usually end up with two versions of the book.
What is Kobo Super Points?
I use Amazon mainly for doing covers, and only then because I can't afford to pay a designer, which is why most of my covers are from my photo albums. The Forgestriker series has sold over e-books, and Forgestriker the book has sold over 80 copies. My current WIPs include an extension of the seven book series with a new beginning, and a thrilling ending. I am also writing two stories to link in with the series, and extending my ghost romance-hopefully into a full novel. Powered by Create your own unique website with customizable templates.
Get Started. My reading ability was always at the top of the class and this developed into the talent for storytelling.
In an injury to my left leg left me disabled and I finally got the opportunity to try to write. The first stories I had published were in a US available only anthology.
