I am proud to announce that Mama, I Want to See God was recently honored as a  “Winner” in the “Children’s Religious” category of the 2017 Bookvana Awards!

Daddy, I Want to Know God is also a winner in the “Children’s Religious” category of the 2018 American Fiction Awards! Yet another win for Daddy, I Want to Know God in the 2019 Christian Indie Awards in the Children’s (4-8 Years) category.

Vision: To glorify and honor God through my writing.

Mission: To use my writing as a tool for Christian ministry that expands beyond the walls of the church and communicates an inspirational message to children and adults.

Thank you for visiting my website and please come again!
