Sometimes, we are faced with the inexplicable. Sometimes, things do not go as we planned.
That does not mean that there is not something better waiting on the other side.
In "An Amish Home Volume 7 – The Fall", one of those things happens.
Young Ruth and her brother venture off into the woods for some innocent and much needed play time. What happens next is almost a tragedy and Ruth receives an ominous message from the mysterious figure that some have called her guardian…Continue

As an author and father, one of my driving passions is to help children, especially those that do not have help. One small thing I am trying is eBay Giving Works. I have listed a paperback copy of The Empyrical Tales Book I: The Fourth Queen on eBay and set it up to donate 90% of the sale to Family Giving Tree - Fulfilling Wishes, Changing Lives.
I know many of us do not have the extra money right now, but if you do have some to give to a good cause, this is a great one.

"What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost." - Luke 15:4-6
And that is my sole inspiration for An Amish Home - Volume 3: The…Continue

That is important to me. It really is.
When you have a child, that is something you think about a lot. As a parent, we have to plan, prepare and teach our children everything we can to protect them. Sometimes, that is all we can do and sometimes that is not enough.
I have probably always known this, but becoming a father has reinforced it. There is one thing more, and it should be the first thing. Trust God.
I could put bars on the windows and my daughter on one of those…Continue

The reason I mention this first is that Burly & Grum and the Secret City will be FREE on August 29th & 30th. Of course, you don't have to wait until then. Why not buy all three for your Kindle now, hmm?

Poet and spiritual student Ron Starbuck gives some insight about his contribution to the One series.
MM: Ron, thank you for joining the One series. With Story Nine: Wheels Turning Inward, you introduce poetry into the series. Up to now, all of the entries have been prose and personal narrative. The goal of One is to explore our faith and you do it in a different way. What was your inspiration?

Part of the fun of writing an ongoing series is creating new characters with each story. I have the same core characters from the beginning (two of which I love almost like they were my own daughters). A large part of the newest plot has to do with a great guy I call Karl Lumpkin.
The Secret Queen
Book III of The Empyrical Tales

With the official release of The Empyrical Tales Book III: The Secret Queen about a week away, I wanted to revisit the original purpose for this blog. Originally, I had intended to give a "making of" commentary and work my way through the story. Like Book III, Book I: The Fourth Queen closely follows the plot of the Hero's Journey. Check out the archive to see older posts, but I left off with "The Ordeal".
You can read the rest at my official blog:…Continue

That's right. Episode 3 is here. Like I said before, Olivia has such a great voice as an author. As I encourage her to explore and develop it, it might take a little longer to get these stories done. With her imagination and charm, I think it is worth the wait.
Sons of the King
The Creator's Ark
In Sons of the King, they have created a fantasy world with a touch of science fiction. In the land of Mysstira on the planet Kaskaya, a great King has three sons.…Continue

"Dinosaur George" Blasing
I am very excited by this! "Dinosaur George" has written the foreword for The Secret Queen, which will be available in about 75 days.
This is the first of my novels to have a foreword and who better since the third book of The Empyrical Tales has dinosaurs in it.
I contacted Mr. Blasing a while back with the aim of him verifying some of my dinosaur facts. When I go into classrooms, I tell the students that a huge part of writing fiction is doing…Continue
