My novels

man writing I've written 5 novels in an new genre (adventure romance) that are a mixture of romance, sports, Christianity, and humor, with a touch of fantasy.  The characters in these stories all live in Lansing, Michigan on Best Street, an imaginary street behind Sparrow hospital. They are easy, entertaining reads without violence or sex scenes, and present the gospel in a non-preachy less traditional way. Just for fun they all have a shoe theme as well.  These novels are not posted on my web site, but some of my short stories are, and I intend to adapt some of them for inclusion in my next novel.
