If you're looking for QUIRKY INSPIRATIONAL FICTION that
blesses and entertains, you've come to the right place. Come on in.

What's New

When I wrote ANGEL & THE TOWN CURMUDGEON I had no intention of writing a sequel. But God had plans I wasn't aware of at the time. He knew I needed to work on something far different from anything I'd written before. Something fun!

If you're familiar with the first book, you know Lolita is Claude Robertson's pet—a little yellow hen. Only God could inspire me to make her the narrator and main character in ASK LOLITA.

I don't normally enjoy doing research for my books, but I Googled a number of things I needed to know about chickens to keep the non-fantasy part of the story as true to true chickendom as possible.

The rest if pure fantasy, though. Here is the front cover and the back cover copy:

I've been very blessed to have a new friend, Connie Warren, whose enthusiasm about reading a beta copy of ASK LOLITA deserves public attention. She belongs to a group of "Farm Sisters" who she's sure will especially LOVE this book. See her review of ANGEL & THE TOWN CURMUDGEON in the next article.

But you don't need to be any more familiar with chickens than I was before to get a kick out of ASK LOLITA.

Great Word of Mouth

Angel & the Town Curmudgeon now has forty-seven reviews and a 4.3 star rating. Thank you, readers and reviewers.

Here's one of the reviews.

A great story with Christian ethics and morals, yet such a easy read. I had difficulty putting down to go to bed or do necessary chores. Will I be reading more of this authors work.

But what means even more to me was this this Facebook post to my wife:

Tell Roger I am getting feedback from Farm sisters on his book! They love it! Just heard from Darlene in California, like me, she didn't want to put it down once she got into it! Denise in New Jersey just started it. Sara in Paris, Texas, loves to read and she is loving it!

Have you ever sent a short note of appreciation to one of your favorite authors? You can never tell how much a post like that might help make that author's day a bit brighter.

Songs of Encouragement

I wrote "The Balm Song" in November 02 2019, but felt led to add the refrain during April 2020 as an encouragement during the coronavirus. I hope and pray that it will bless you. You can find a free lead sheet (words, notes, and chords) here. Listen to it here.

More recently I felt inspired to write this chorus for "When I Am Scared," which I've re-titled "My Lord Always Provides." But the chorus can also be used separately, and that's what I've done on the video you can watch here.

Thought for the Week of 4/11/2021

"When there is no enemy within,
the enemies outside cannot hurt you."
Winston Churchill


Nursing Home Ministry Still a No-Go

Because of COVID-19 and the exceptional danger to nursing home residents, we don't have any idea when we'll be able to resume holding services.

You'll find the March 4 music video—that's the most recent one—down below. I believe it's quite relevant to the future none of us can predict. But we can face with confidence that everything that affects our lives is "In God's Hands."

Free PDF lead sheets of many of my songs are available under the "Read" tab.

I hope you enjoy your visit and come again soon.
