I worship a God who spoke and worlds appeared. When I create fiction, I must labor for months.
But I get to sample a wee taste of the world-creating experience.
Amalfi Coast, Italy, 2014

When children ask me the difference between fiction and non-fiction, I like to tell them that one explores what is true, and the other reveals truth. I love doing both. My second-grade teacher encouraged me to write a story every day, and I never got over it. Years later, my first post-college boss believed I could write, so he set aside company funds to get me some training. All these years later, I still love telling stories, whether from my own life, those in the Bible, others’ journeys, or narratives I make up.

Though I was content in my role as a magazine editor, I broke into book publishing because I had a passion to encourage fellow travelers on the infertility journey. Thus, my non-fiction books relate to infertility, marriage, intimacy, and contraception—all based on the belief that marriage, sex, and children are gifts from God—but not the only gifts. The Bible studies I’ve written take into account cultural backgrounds, linguistic considerations, and the need for artist-types like me to include some aesthetics in the Bible-study experience. And my novels, three of which were coauthored and one of which is a solo work, all explore biomedical themes and fall in the “medical suspense category.”

Whether you’re here to explore the truth, what is true, or both, I hope you’ll find within the pages of my works a friend on the journey of thinking that transforms.
