Caught in the Winds
A new student at an evangelical college, comes of age by encountering his deepest aspirations.

Meet Morrie Schiller, a misfit at Bethlehem College in the Midwest. He struggles to fit into normal student life. He tries and fails to win the girl he loves and then gets caught in the cross-fire as the school's liberals and right-wing factions wage war.

Enter Jack Joplin, a mysterious stranger who befriends and mentors him down a dark path of pseudo-enlightenment. Things get out-of-hand as he is catapulted into adventures that go beyond his wildest dreams. Maturity comes only by passing through the refiner's fire.
With humor and suspense, this novel seeks to shine a critical light on the religious scene in America today.

Could this be a modern day Narnia? The Nelsons believe, but town folks with only "natural eyes" tend to be skeptical . . .

A Midspring Night Dream
This piece is between an epilogue and a sequel to my main novel Caught in the Winds and is directed toward those who have already read it. An often comment from readers is that Tracy, Emily. and even Jack were simple dropped and never heard from again. What happened to them? In a dream, Morrie time travels and gets some answers. . . .
