I am a Kingdom writer, word warrior and novelist, hardwired to write for Yahweh Elohim. My fiction often demonstrates the Hand of YAH in everyday human affairs, highlighting how He moves in His children's individual and collective lives and throughout this world. My hope is for these stories to be an enjoyable and enlightening form of pointing people to our Redeemer and His Kingdom and inspiring True spiritual growth in the reader. The historical novels also teach readers about events ignored or inaccurately portrayed in mainstream history chronicles. My nonfiction writing is my humble service to the Kingdom. Whatever I write, Yahshua Hamashiach, the Anointed Messiah is Author and Finisher of my faith and my fiction. I am very grateful to my Divine Source for the scribal gifting and a platform on which to use it. 

     My somewhat outside-the-box novels are rooted in my love of storytelling and penchant for historical relevance to the African American experience. I have an affectionate connection to Yahweh’s Word and a fascination with the theater of human drama. My stories blend these passions often into multilayered plots with engaging characters showing Father Yah's Abiding Hand in ever aspect of human life. Adding a touch of romance in most of them satisfies that ever-present amorous nature of mine.

    Currently published novels are historical romances and contemporary fiction with Kingdom focused nonfiction forthcoming. I am amoving into nonfiction with the same, if not more, enthusiasm as I have for fiction.

    Along with being a Kingdom writer, word warrior  and novelist, I am an ordained nondenominational minister. My passions are with my writing, Bible literacy outreach and teaching. My roots are in Pennsylvania where I currently live. If you would like to learn more about me or connect with me, visit these sites:
