As a Christ-follower, I am who God says that I am, coming to terms with who that is exactly; however, I do know what I am not. My graduate Master's studies with dual concentration in English and Religious Studies will be completed January 2018 from Dallas Baptist University. My Bachelor of Arts in the School of Arts and Humanities was conferred in 1994 from the University of Texas at Dallas. My first published work is forthcoming and will be available in the local Books-A-Million chain store in the Spring 2018. Entitled, "I Shall Wear a Crown", the offering is a garden variety "Chicken Soup" chess devotional of meditations and anecdotal observations on the state of things in the Texas Public (and private) classroom, with religious overtones. Admittedly, a narrow market for such books and priced accordingly.
