This is my personal blog, on which I talk about a variety of topics purely as they catch my fancy. Some topics are serious, others whimsical. I love comments and questions so don't be shy, just courteous, even if you don't agree with me. I have another blog, The Story Template, on which I post writing-related topics on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Let's see, a bit about me... I'm married with two children, and spend much time taking care of our family. In my life BC (before children) I was a scientist who did bench research. I am a Christian who came to faith under protest through studying the historic circumstances surrounding the death of Jesus. I've written one novel, A Lever Long Enough, that I'm honored to say has won two awards. I also have written a nonfiction book, The Story Template: Conquer Writer's Block Using the Universal Structure of Story. This book is a programmed learner-type book that helps you, the writer, develop a complete compelling story (novel or screenplay) from a vague idea.

During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan
wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler and bait in
the plane. And a bear smelled it. This is what he did to the plane.
pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him 2 new tires, 3
cases of duct tape, and a supply of sheet plastic. He patched the plane
together, and flew it home.
