My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the King; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. - Psalm 45:1 King James Version
And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands. - Psalm 90:17
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, To devise cunning works, … to work in all manner of workmanship. … and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded ... - Ex 31:3 King James Version

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. - Psalm 19:1 King James Version
By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. - Psalm 33:6 King James Version

Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. - Psalm 90:1-2

Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee. - Nehemiah 9:6 King James Version

For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name. - Amos 4:13 King James Version

About Me Text

My heart is sore pained within me:
and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me,
and horror hath overwhelmed me.
I will call upon God;
and the Lord shall save me.
Evening, and morning, and at noon,
will I pray, and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.



I am a Speculative Fiction writer who is a Christian and struggles with depression, which, until recently (2016ish), went undiagnosed since at least high school.
Sometimes, way too often, I fail God, but He picks me up, cleans me up, and helps me to continue on the journey of living life and writing for Him.

My childhood home was Alaska, where I had a fair share of adventures, and misadventures, including surviving the largest recorded earthquake to hit the North American continent.
I attended college in Oregon, and currently reside in the Seattle area. Many of my Works in Progress take place in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

In 2nd grade I became an avid reader, and in 7th grade I began the struggle with myself, and God, of whether or not I wanted to accept the title "Writer."

Since JAN 2016 I've been taking Prozac and am again working on this blog as a way for me to get myself to work on self-assigned writing projects, a way to encourage myself to get on with the adventure of being a Spec Fic writer.

Hello Twenty-Ten

Well, here it is the first day of 2010 just about over.  I started my day with my Bible reading, some exercise, and then later a short walk.  So about this writing thing....

I started to like writing in 7th grade, and in high school - after I took my required English classes, I took a bunch of creative writing classes.  In at least one of these classes we were supposed to take 15 minutes to write in our journals.  Although I didn't do much in the way of journaling during the high school classes I took, I finally took a creative writing class, which also required us to journal, while earning my Bachelor's of Science in Software Engineering Technology, and even though I ended up having to drop the class I continued to journal, and continue to journal.

Even though I enjoyed the classes, and enjoy writing, I never wanted to be "a writer," after all most of 'em are starving artists, right?

Besides not wanting to be a writer, I never liked math in high school, and I never liked getting up in front of a class and giving a short presentation.  I ended up liking math, became a tutor, and then was told "you should be a teacher."

Well, God does indeed work in mysterious ways, because now here I am pursuing teaching, and this "writng stuff."

I probably won't be back on until after Monday, I still have a couple of submissions to the critique group to get read through and get feedback done.

May this year be filled with new blessings.  May you see God in a new way.
