"This is the other side of my creative coin." One, the world of expressive images, the other a world of expressive words. The writings are a personal reservoir and resource for critical thought that have found their way into my novels, an autobiography, critical commentary, spiritual teachings on the Kingdom of God, scholarly literature, newspaper columns, as well as poetry.
