I am pleased to unveil my new website (click here)! This reflects my shift from a nonfiction writer who blogged at “Set Free to Soar” and then “Lighting the Journey Ahead.” Now I write drama for the screen and stage — primarily films, occasionally plays.
In the Bible we find real people facing real problems. Scripture doesn’t shy away from the raw and messy.
That’s why my first project — Unveiled — is about a pastor with a past who rescues trafficked teens in order to save himself. The premise? Secrets we believe keep us free and safe can chain us to fear and shame until the truth is unveiled.
Yet in the midst of great brokenness, the hope of redemption in Christ always awaits.
You and I need redemption in today’s world of rampant double standards. Jesus aimed some of his harshest criticism at hypocrites.
- Right is still right, even if our worst enemy does it.
- Wrong is still wrong, even if our best friend does it.
- If we condemn a behavior just because we dislike the person, what right do we have to applaud if someone we like does something similar?
- If we condone a behavior just because we like the person, what right do we have to complain when someone we don’t like does something similar?
Screenwriters can’t control what happens after they sell their work. If a particular story is made into a film, the producer might have my script rewritten by someone else to add in profanity and/or onscreen nudity. But I have promised the Lord I will write clean on my end.
In May at the 2018 Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, I was blessed to receive First place for Film Scripts. No one was more surprised that night than I was!
