October Celebrations

IMG_0191Thanks for stopping by my official webpage.  We’re enjoying fall weather here in central Texas, which is perfect writing weather! I appreciate the fact that you’re here.  Browse around a bit, leave a comment if you’d like, and if you have a question, drop me a line via the Connect/Contact button at the top!

My publisher is running a special on last year’s series, Plain & Simple Miracles. These four stories are all set within Cody’s Creek, Oklahoma–a place I invented after visiting Chouteau, Oklahoma. The stories deal with the tenants of our faith–redemption, miracles, missions, and orphans. I hope that you’ll give them a try. These special ebook prices last through the end of October and are good with all retailers, but always check before purchasing. Brian’s Choice is a 76 page prequel, and the stories can be read in any choice you choose. They each have new characters and a new plot. What ties them together is the location and the theme of celebrating our faith.

I hope that you are spending some of each day out in the beauty of fall. In spite of the tragedies that too often occur around us, we can feel grounded and even grateful when we take a few moments to appreciate God’s gifts.

8 Favorite Foods

Writers spend a lot of time alone. It’s part of the job! The only way you can think through your characters, straighten up your plot, and write the book that God has given you to write is to go into your office and get it done.

But I like learning about my readers. I like meeting people and finding out interesting things about them. This week, let’s talk food.

I have some favorite food categories–like chocolate. Isn’t that a food group? That and coffee! So I thought I’d share 8 of my favorite foods, and I included a couple drinks. Some of them I only eat now and then, and I imagine you’ll be able to guess why. Here they are:
1. Chocolate cake
2. Ice cream
3. Strawberries
4. Fried chicken
5. Warm bread
6. HFC (hamburger, French fries and coke)
7. Unsweetened raspberry tea
8. Strong coffee

Now how about you? What are some of your favorite foods?
