Writing

As of 12/1/13, I have co-author credit on six books in The Truth Chronicles series with my friend, Tim Chaffey. It is a fun series of books that follows four teens as they come to terms with matters of faith while struggling with a variety of questions about life. These books are written with a 6th-8th grade audience specifically in mind, but children (and adults) of all ages have greatly enjoyed the stories. That makes perfect sense, because who doesn’t like dinosaurs and time-travel?

In addition, I have written two short stories, “Under the Open Sky” and “Dereliction of Duty,” that will hopefully be appearing in a collection entitled Worlds of Faith, compiled by Paul Taylor. This anthology of short stories was published in January of 2014. I found that I really enjoy writing short stories and hope to make them at least a semi-regular part of my writing routine.

I have at least three novel-length story ideas in mind that I can be working on. My short story, “Under the Open Sky,” serves as a prequel to one of these ideas, so I am especially excited about getting that one off of the ground, although I may have to rework the short story considerably to get more accurate information about the setting. Hopefully I can talk my family into a road trip for research purposes.
