An ordinary bloke. More than that – an ordinary Christian bloke.
That counts. It means that I live in hope. Not a wishful-thinking kind of hope, but an active hope built on faith and fueled by experience. Becoming old just takes time, but my years have been full of challenges overcome, joys experienced, trials that became valuable lessons, and constant contact with God. When I was young I had a future; now I’m older, I have a past; but I still have a future to look forward to, and the enjoyment continues.
My business career is past history. I was also once a member of a nationally known Christian rock group. My music hasn’t quite gone away (I still play acoustic guitar) but it’s no longer at the core of my life. Writing and prayer are now my main occupations – and being a grandfather. The primary passions that are reflected in my writing are Church, Bible, and Prayer.
