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.

A Love Story
Some of these photographs have "Tim Dodd" stamped on the front. Tim Dodd is an Iowa photographer and childhood friend of Taylor Morris, 23 years old in May 2012 when a bomb blast in Afghanistan made Taylor a quadruple amputee. Taylor's girlfriend and later wife, Danielle Kelly, were together since high school.
There are no words conveying the depth of astounding loss for this young man. He is blessed to have found such an angel.
