New Release! Piercehaven Book 1

New! Emily is so excited to start her new teaching job on a remote Maine island. It seems God is really dropping all the puzzle pieces of her life into place. There’s even a handsome lobsterman in play. But the island also harbors a long-kept dark secret, and it’s up to Emily to figure out what it is and what she’s going to do about it.

New Poetry Book!

My last few poetry collections have been published by the amazing Moon Pie Press. I love working with them, and wholeheartedly recommend them to poetry lovers everywhere. However, part of me has been nagging at the rest of me to get some poems out there in ebook form. So, here it is: Almost Touching: new and selected poems. These are some of my favorite poems from the last 10+ years, poems I still believe in. After I put the collection together, I also realized that these poems tell my life story in a surprisingly comprehensive way. I must warn you, though: these aren’t church poems. They deal with some difficult subject matter. But it is my hope that they still glorify God, who created me to create them. This book is available in paperback and kindle ebook, and is free to read for those with Kindle Unlimited. Enjoy, and as always, thanks for reading!
