The Prodigal Returns

Luke 15:24 ” For this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began.

If you’re coming late to this party you can read all about how my son Micah went missing. The short story is he walked off his Army base and didn’t contact us for a month. It was the worst month of our lives, not knowing if he was dead or alive, strung out on drugs, or messed…

The First Chapter Of My Book, "Jew in Jail"


My mother had asked me, the night before, what I was doing with that toy gun. She noticed it on the foot of the extra bed in my room, and I told her that I was going to give it to my friend Alan’s son as a birthday present. I lied to her. The truth of the matter was that I was an alcoholic, a drug addict, and a compulsive gambler, and I was planning to go into Manhattan the next day in order to rob a few dry cleaning stores.

I had…

Hello all

I'm Lannah and I'm a 57 year young Australian wife, Mum and author, journalist, photographer and quite a few other things.  I absolutely LOVE everything that I do - I love life.  I feel I am ageing backwards although there are the odd times when I do feel almost my age!!  I am in the middle of writing four books - one being about the mighty outback of Australia and research has and does involve physically visiting each of the 25-30 participating sheep and cattle stations spread nationwide.…

A different kind of Christan Author

Hello, I’m Twe Stephens…

I call myself A different kind of Christian Author , because I write stories unlike anyone I’ve seen before – I write the history of God utilizing a fictional format for his Glory. Many of the scenes in my novels take place in Heaven, so the reader can have a realistic view of what heaven is probably like. Heaven isn’t about sitting on clouds, strumming harps and praising God with every other breath one takes for eternity, as the system tries to imply.…

I am finishing up a new book entitled: THE SCIENCE OF GREATNESS. In it I deal with the secret of how to become GREAT. Most people view GREATNESS as the outward expression of leadership, courage, and and a strong personal resolve. But TRUE GREATNESS has more to do with OBEDIENCE than anything else. My editor and I are putting the finishing touches on the grammar. It will be done and ready to order this month.

I have written a few books and my latest one is What Makes People Tick & Why.  My book discusses the relationship between the facial structure and personality, which has been well researched scince the 1930's.  The information helps the reader to better understand the people they meet with.  At the end of each trait discussion, there are a list of applications.  They include careers, relationships, sales and understanding children.

Introduction, of a sort

Ah, and once more into the Tulgey Wood without a clue as to what lies behind the next tree!

This is being put up as a blog simply because I couldn't figure out how else to post it. (I am a total cyber-Neanderthal.) So, as usual, I shall simply jump in with both feet and risk appearing like a total idiot for not knowing how things are done.

A word of introduction for those who may not know me. I'm the author of the 14-book Dick Hardesty Mystery series, the 4-book Elliott Smith…
