The Christian and the Arts
is the author of several fictional novels and shorter works. His most recent novel, The Last Motley was released in December, 2017. His previous release, The Ascent of the Nebula, was nominated for the 2016 Grace Awards. Although much of what he writes falls in the Science Fiction and Fantasy genres, he likes to call his work “imaginative” fiction and often incorporates elements from multiple genres. He has a degree in English from Cornell College. He’s tried his hand at both acting and theatre, but these days is happiest with a pen in his hand. He lives in Tennessee with his wife and three children and an unusually large collection of board games. His family often gangs up on him so that he doesn’t win, but he has fun anyway.
claims only to be a former Norwegian bachelor farmer whose ungovernable spirit was brought to bay by the love of Christ and a patient woman but who still longs for the day when all his virtues and passions will be totally purified.
is the director of Castle Ministries and an elementary school administrator. He has degrees in business, christianity, and education, however, he loves to teach and read history, architecture, and children’s Literature. His family is his main ministry, living on the mountain with his wife and 4 children.
