I love to write. I’ve been writing since elementary school, and while in college took numerous writing courses. I’ve written a large number of short stories, probably enough for a book. I’ve written my first novel, titled “The Valley of the White Giants.” The story is about a Viking settlement in North America that survives undetected up to the 21st century. I self-published several copies to give away as Christmas gifts, but I would like to get it properly published. I’ve been searching for an agent (publishing houses won’t even talk to you unless you are represented by an agent), but so far, without success. I’ll keep looking, and hopefully I’ll find someone willing to represent me. Interestingly, I’ve been approached by a film production company who wants to make my book into a film. I’m currently writing the screenplay, and once complete, we’ll move forward with the production.
Other writing projects include a sequel to The Valley of the White Giants, titled “Four Corners,” another book about the Knights Templar called “The Secret”, one that paints them in a favourable light instead of making them out to be villains, as so many other authors are wont to do. I’ve also started a third novel titled “The Plantagenet Project.” This one is sort of along the lines of Jurassic Park, but instead of dinosaurs, it’s medieval people.
Another project that combines my faith in Christ and my interest in armour, is a non-fiction book about the whole armour of God, based on the Apostle Pauls’ description in Ephesians chapter six.
This one’s now complete, including the armour that I want to include photos of along with the text. I'm looking for a publisher for this book now.
A couple of years ago, I started working on a series of military science fiction novels. At first, I was only planning on writing one novel, but when I finished it, the ideas kept flowing, so I wrote a sequel. It just kept growing from there, and now I'm finishing up the first draft of book five, and I'm starting to plot out book six. This is really way out of my comfort zone, but I have a great group of people helping me with all of the military aspects of the story arc, making sure that I don't make any mistakes (like you don't say 'over and out' when you close a communication, just 'out'). I've had a lot of fun writing this series. I'm hoping I can get a publisher interested in it soon.
