Come with me to Bethlehem. A sleepy hamlet in the mountains of Southern Israel. Here we will find a newborn baby lying in a manger surrounded by his parents and barn animals.

It doesn’t seem like the most idyllic Christmas. There is no tree, no presents, and no stockings hung by the fireplace. Everything is ordinary. Jesus lying in a mound of hay is the furthest thing from extraordinary. Yet, the Savior of the world begins his first moments here in this barn, in this village.

During this journey, you will discover the true meaning of the season. It’s not the glow of lights or the smell of pine needles. We celebrate Christmas because of Jesus Christ, God’s gift to us.




What is your schedule like when you’re writing a book?

I try to write a little every day. A good rule I try to follow is one page or one chapter a day. I break this rule often, but it is a baseline I have set for myself. This baseline keeps me on track.

Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

I have contemplated it, but I feel it would cause too much distraction instead of being beneficial. When you enter the field of writing, you want to create a following. The following can be difficult to create when you are writing under a pseudonym, although it is not impossible.

 Have you ever gotten reader’s block?

Often. There are times when I don’t have words for a particular character. I envision the overarching theme, but how to get there is bumpy. I am a big picture type of person, so I struggle with the small pieces that create the big picture.

Does your family support your career as a writer?

Yes. I have a terrific family that has been nothing but supportive of my writing. I have to press them to be critical of my writing. I always want to improve so I seek input from them.

How many hours a day do you write?

It is not the number of hours a day I write since I am a part-time writer. I try to write 30 minutes a week, sometimes more. I feel 30 minutes a week keeps your skills in good working order.

If you could invite any three people for dinner, whom would you invite?

Jesus Christ, Liam Neeson, and John Grisham.

Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?

I’m contemplating a Christian television show in 2024. It would be a major shift from writing, but I believe change is good.


Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

I want to be original because I believe readers appreciate the authenticity of writing from the heart. Readers can get what they want from Hollywood. They desire original content from writers.


How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

I don’t typically celebrate because I am already thinking about my next project. I like to be focused on what is next, so my readers always have something new to look forward to.


If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be?

I would like to be mentored by John Grisham. He has a way with words that I would desire to emulate.
