Tell us a little about yourself. I retired four years ago, after thirty-five years of medical practice, the last ten as a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. God has blessed me a second time with a wonderful wife, and we're both busier than we ever were when we were working full-time.
What was your motivation behind this project? From the day after my wife's funeral, I began "journaling," in the form of emails to my family, friends and pastor, as well as letters to myself and posthumous letters to her. Those who read these raw, unedited writings found them so powerful, they encouraged me to use them as the core for a book that would help others who had suffered a similar loss. The book that resulted, THE TENDER SCAR, features excerpts from that journaling, plus what one reviewer has called "loving, practical words to help the grieving in their journey toward healing of a wound that always leaves a tender scar."
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? If those who grieve can find comfort, help, and direction from reading this book, it will prove yet again that God can take a tragedy--in this case, the most agonizing loss I've ever suffered-- and bring something good from it.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I first went to a Christian Writers' Conference with great hesitancy and absolutely no plan. I left with a conviction that I absolutely had to write THE TENDER SCAR, and continue writing after that. Talented and successful authors, including James Scott Bell, Alton Gansky, Gayle Roper and Karen Ball, have mentored and supported me as I continue to learn the craft, and I appreciate all they, and many others, have done to encourage me.
