If you are new to my website, please read reviews of my books and check out my blog with the tabs above.
Tell us a little about yourself. I am a minister's wife and former church secretary with writing credits in four states. My husband and I have been affiliated with seven Universities, five Christian Schools and fifteen congregations. I know where the bodies are buried.
What was your motivation behind this project? The antics of American Christian institutions can appear ridiculous to outsiders and deplorable to the faithful. I want my brothers and sisters to see themselves as others see us.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We should laugh at our inconsistencies and modify our methods of spreading the mystery of the gospel.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I am particularly concerned that my writing be to the glory of God and to the edification of His church. I felt blessed as God helped me complete this book.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I read the Bible, and am a Dickens addict. I read and write clerical crime fiction, particularly Brother Cadfael by Elizabeth Peters and Rabbi Small by Harry Kemelman. Dr. William Spencer's published doctoral thesis, Mystery and Mysterium, is the authoritative work on the genre.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I love to make people laugh in the context of serious discussion.
