It has always been my desire not only to excel as a writer and artist, but to freely share what I have learned to love and value. Using my web skills, I have therefore created this multi-faceted journey into my private side. As you journey into my spirit, heart and mind, it is my special hope that you will find something meaningful here that will enrich your own life.
I cannot remember a time when I wasn't interested in dabbling in fine art such as drawing and painting. However, during a very dark time in my life, I crucified my dreams of becoming a paid graphic artist and professional author. It wasn’t until many years later that I began to entertain new hopes that I could succeed as an author. I still haven’t fully revived my desire to draw. Someday I might, but currently all my efforts are being directed toward becoming a paid, published author and web/graphics designer.
My previous explorations in art centered mostly around fantasy as well as nature and life drawing. To view some of the art I did before I stopped my more serious drawing pursuits in 1981, visit my online Art Gallery using the link provided. Keep in mind that this artwork was done before I became a Christian and some of the subject matter may be offensive to certain people.
When art no longer seemed like a viable career path for me, Middle-Eastern style dancing came to fill the void. When I was a teenager, I never would have believed it if someone had told me that my hobby studying "belly-dancing" would become a consuming passion. It did, however, and Middle Eastern dancing is what I pursued for fun and profit for many years. During that time, I was a professional dance teacher, performer, choreographer, troupe leader, and costumer. Through my Dance Expressions link, you can explore my dance related articles and photographs. Though some may find various aspects of my dance career objectionable, I do not feel that there is anything evil about dancing and have been very blessed by my involvement in it. Over time I have also found that, given modest costuming and a joyful attitude on the part of the dancer, belly dancing can be performed as a sacred expression of love for God and His gift of life.
I also have many photographs of my family and my changing self over the years posted in my Family Photo Album here for your enjoyment. In addition to taking snapshots of family and friends, I enjoy photographing the beauty of Yahweh God's wonderful creation. I do not profess to be an expert at photography by any means, but I have taken some striking photos using ordinary 35mm cameras. I've shared some of my best efforts here in my Nature Section of My Photo Gallery.
Creative Writing has always been a deeply ingrained part of me. This web site therefore features an extensive section on my writings over the years. Here, you can read the melancholy poetry of my youth, the vibrant prose in my historical romances, and the drama and humor in my role-play writings set in Ancient Egypt and Babylon. Here you will also discover my deep passion for Yahweh God revealed in my latest fiction and non-fiction religious writings.
In my Role-Play Pages, I have created a list of links that will take you to various web sites that show my evolving web skills in relation to role-play. These were honed in 1999 through 2001, when I learned to use html and graphics to create fantasy web settings for my role-play characters.
There is much more that I would like to share in the future. As time permits, I will be making new additions to this web site to keep it up to date. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy what I am currently offering here and will come back again sometime.
