Flying home to New York I pictured my boxes of diaries being delivered, driven like a western covered wagon train slowly rolling across America. Back in hometown the collection of stories grew by searching for a church, new jobs, another dog and stumbling in and out of love.
January of 2002 after having major surgery I began reading 240 diaries and shaping events. Honoring God by illuminating my trials and blessings was my motive for writing. Telling the story of Gods love became my objective. By 2007 I quit one part time job to carve out quality time as writing matured into a daily labor of love.
In March 2012 I discovered Westbow Press. Prayerfully putting my manuscript into the hands of their editors, the hard work of rewriting progressed. My hope is to encourage those who think they know Jesus as Savior to be sure and obey Him as Lord. Lord willing many more will come to love Him.

Tell us a little about yourself. Seeing the condition of the world and where it is going is very disturbing. America is in a crisis situation and I am doing my best to inform people on my blog mdr.thethreshold.com there is true hope in Jesus. Time may be running out of opportunities to be ambassadors of Christ before His return.
What was your motivation behind this project? My books and web site are like soaring arrows in flight around the world. Proclaiming God's truth in the Bible is a gift from God. Knowing my time writing and posting on the internet may be used by God to draw someone to Himself is a joy. Pointing to Jesus out of love is a Christian motivation.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? God has determined a certain number of souls He will bring to heaven. He ripped me off the road to hell at 36 years old. People don't know if they are Gods until they accept His Son into their life. Until the last soul is saved there will be more chaos in the world. But God is faithful, all of His will come.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My autobiography is a testimony showing God's unfailing love and purpose in life. Believing in His plan for all to come to salvation gives me strength to write. Physical disabilities may slow me down but as long as God leaves the door open to write, I'll write. Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The Puritans captured some of their great prayers in "The Valley of Vision." That book is a powerful foundational daily source of strength and encouragement. The great work of God Holy Spirit is the most important power and person teaching and directing my life toward heaven. Through the Bible He leads, I follow by the grace of God.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The continued political and social breakdown in America will only get worse as God is ignored. Perhaps people will once again cry out "God help us" as they did after 911 and then forgot God. Each person must deal with Jesus, God the Son one on one. Sooner or later they will, the Lord reigns.
