I believe in the power and magic of words.

I tell stories. As a novelist. As a pastor. As one who loves people and this fabulous world we live in.

I hope you enjoy the words, the stories, the reflections — and I hope the power and the magic of the written word touch you, too.

I published my first novel this summer. It takes place in western Nebraska where I grew up, a landscape that’s in my bones. It’s also a story near to my heart about the balance of public and private life and life in community.
