The Town CrierHear Ye! Hear Ye!

Just three days to the Business of Writing Inter­na­tional Summit at Louisville. I will be teach­ing a seminar on Friday, August 1, at 1:30 about how to start the writers’ group YOU want. If you can’t come, follow me on Twitter that weekend, and I’ll post some tweets about the various seminars I attend.

And one week after that, I’ll be in Syracuse, New York, as keynote speaker of a Native Ameri­can Camp Meeting August 8–10 on the topic, One Creator, One Planet: Caring for Mother Earth.

I am actively seeking speak­ing engage­ments. I especially love to address themes of forgive­ness and recon­cil­i­a­tion. Please contact me through my “Contact” page.

The best and safest haven from a hectic life is hiding deep within the center of your being where you can find soul-satisfying oneness with the Creator who loves and sustains you. When the stresses of daily life crack the walls of even that haven, it my prayer that my words—fiction, nonfic­tion, spoken, or written—may help you repair the breach. Spring­haven Castle repre­sents that place of safety. In the center of the court­yard, where you are now, an overflow­ing spring sparkles in the sunlight, repre­sent­ing the Eternal Life brought by God’s Holy Spirit.
