It seems good to me to separate the story portions of this blog from the non-fiction entries. From here on I will post the Sinner Series and any other fictional writings on my new blog designed solely for that purpose - www.herofantasyfiction.com .
If you are enjoying the Sinner Series, please go and follow the new blog. I hope to post other fictional snippets there as well from time to time. I am also planning another series. It is a western/fantasy adventure story. The main character’s name will be Jesse (a tribute to my son). I envision it to be a mix up of the pioneering spirit of Little House on the Prairie, the adventure of a Young Riders, and the fantastical wonders and dangers of Narnia.

As the name of the new site implies, I desire to write stories about heroes. Jesse loved hero stories, and I would love nothing more than to write stories that I think he would want to read. Hero stories , whether real or fictional, can inspire us to live more nobly in our own daily lives.
Plus, I am personally grieved at how many heroes in books and film today are portrayed as many different shades of gray-no moral compass. I am not advocating heroes without flaws, but heroes who recognize their flaws and acknowledge and work on overcoming them. I think of the great Bible heroes like David, Sampson, and Joshua just to name a few.
I think also of the Hero of heroes, who indeed has no flaws. Jesus is the ultimate inspiration for us all. The best qualities of any hero always point to Him.
