Tell us a little about yourself. An entrepreneur at heart I sold my award winning picture framing business to form One Way Productions, performing one-man Biblical dramas all over the world including Greece, Turkey, and Israel.
What was your motivation behind this project? Impersonating New Testament characters burst the Bible alive in my imagination and is the story behind my ministry. It became obvious these stories should be expanded to historical novels.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I trust these escapades into the minds and hearts of our favorite Bible characters and their life changing messages will enhance our lives as well.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? To effectively imagine life in first century Judea and live vicariously through Simon Peter, Zacchaeus, Nicodemus, Joseph, St. Paul, and etc. causes me to read the scriptures and between the lines to personalize the Bible in such a way as to experience, as best anyone can, as if I was there.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Lief Enger may be my favorite author. His ability to jam every sentence with intense emotion is inspirational if not intimidating. All of Christian fiction owes a huge debt to Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Read - then recommend - gift Christian books.
