Come back frequently to see what I'm working on.

Three books are in the wind.

The first to be released is called, Two Stitches and a Patch. It's at the publisher and will come out in early in 2024. This is a book developed by my good friend Dr. Terry Megli. He wrote it and asked me to help by editing his work.

The second is called, The Best Year of Our Lives! It's a high school championship football story and will be released later on during the 2024 football season.

All are true labors of love, but this last one covers the personal stories of men, women and children who have been positively impacted throughout 100 Years of Hope: The Story of City Union Mission. Publication release is expected before year-end.
