Amber Hill's artwork

Artwork, it is something that makes a novel come alive in a unique way.

Last year I hired Jennifer Miller to do an awesome illustration of Albino the dragon lifting the sword out of the pool while he stands over the grave of his beloved daughter.

This year I've hired a friend of Jennifer's named Amber Hill to do a promotional illustration of Patient the shepherd. The sketch on the left is the first phase of the illustration. Doesn't she do a nice job?

The reason for hiring a second artist is that Jennifer is not as strong when it comes to humanoid illustration. And, since her and Amber have collaborated on prior occasions, I now have the advantage of two good artist to look up.

This art piece will be finished middle of November. Its main purpose is going to be as a bookmark illustration.
Amber sent me three initial sketches and I chose the topmost of these two. However, she is going to make a couple adjustments that I thought were necessary. 1) I don't like the shepherd looking down, it makes him look abashed/ashamed 2) The staff needs to curve inward more dramatically.
Other than that it all looked great! Thumbs up, Amber!

J.K. Rowling Revealed her True Colors

You will notice that I've removed the Harry Potter books from my favorites list.

J.K. Rowling's recent declaration that she intended Dumbledore to be gay made me turn tail from her work. As a Christian I must be careful what I read and what I endorse. I am sorry I ever endorsed HP and now I join the ranks of those who know that the books are nothing less than an underhanded attempt to demorallize youth.

"Woodland King" Now Published

It's here, it is finally here: my first published story.

Check it out through this link:

Please post here afterward, and let me know what you thought!


"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
