Somerset. Though it seem to be
the hottest day of the year so far, it was enjoyable. I watched the children playing ‘splashing’ in the fountain as I signed my book ‘A Gun and the Cross’ and it was like I was in a dream. Watching those children splashing in the fountain took me back to my childhood when I was one of those kids splashing in the water, dreaming of growing up to be a writer, a poet.
As the years passed I grew, faced the challenges of life as an adult; spent some time in the military, married, working to support my family; I kept the dream of being a writer, and having my poetry published.
Over the years I wrote about my experiences, of those I served with in the military, people I’ve met and worked with.
I’ve wrote about life around us in general and about the miracles of God.
I kept my dream, my passion for poetry and faith that God would one day open the
door. As I sit there in the heat, signing books and watching the children laugh and play . . . well I realized that through all the ups and downs in life and many years of trying and praying to be a published author my prayer was answered, my dream had come true and I had the urge to run and splash in the fountain with the children praising God; however I resisted the urge to splash
in the water, but I am still giving God all praise.
I also give God the praise for Maple Hill Publishing and I thank Steven Dowell for all the hard work he’s done to get ‘A Gun and the Cross’published and on the market.
My sincere thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy of ‘A Gun and the Cross’ and I hope you enjoy it. I
hope it will stir some emotions, make someone laugh, cry, wonder.
It will give some insight into the heart and mind of a
Thanks to God may He bless everyone
