I have five kids from 6 to 25, and so I try to review most of what they're reading and guide their reading in the right direction.
Being a minister, I like to consider anything that relates to the Bible and history and I am particularly interested in the Hebrew Old Testament as a specialty.
The children's literature I'm trying to write will involve biblical patterns as to how God made the world with time for feasting, festivity and music. I model my characters on my children and children I know.
I am a musician, accompanying the music at our church with a 12 string guitar and my daughter plunking out the melody on piano.
I am trying to read broadly in order to interact with the culture: this website has been very good for that broadening process.
I have to be honest that I do enjoy the social interaction, but I hold myself honorable and faithful to my wife who is always an inspiration and a blessing.
Thanks to all who help me to cultivate my mind!
