I often felt awkward in a church setting so I quit the pastorate after 22 years. I’m done with religion. But not with God. After earning a M.Div. degree from Princeton Theological Seminary I was voted out of two pastorates because I’ve never gotten along with stuffy parishioners and trampled over their traditions at every opportunity. I’m an outgoing, charismatic orator who inspires confidence and conviction in my audiences, but I love being alone in crowds. That’s where I was, in my minivan on a crowded street, when I heard the audible voice of God tell me to WRITE! Today I’m the author of a growing catalog of fiction and non-fiction titles, many of them illustrating the power of God's G.R.A.C.E. to heal and restore souls damaged by any form of parental rejection, abandonment, abuse, or neglect.
