January 2017 - New chapters posted in Field Guide to Heaven and in Guardian of the Valley
This relaunch renews a major goal of my adult life. I started some of these stories in 1980. I have kept up with developing them in the time I had. Along with these writings, I have kept an active life as a playwright and poet. In 2011, things slowed down when I got sidetracked dealing with my health and completing a difficult job at the Myrna Loy Center in Helena, MT from which I retired in the Fall of 2014. Now I am focusing on continuing these imaginative writings. In helping the readers sort through them, let me categorize them in this way. Most of the stories can be called “Young Adult.”
A Field Guide to Heaven is a more thoughtful text written as a spiritual guide.
The Path of Glory on the Purgatory Road tells the adventure of Catherine of Siena, Queen Elizabeth I, and Napoleon as they witness the collapse of Dante's structure of Purgatory and have to find their way through the new landscape to reach Heaven.
Cast in the Incarnation is an imaginative story of the life of Jesus that considers how the human part of his nature needed to develop naturally: He had to be a baby, a toddler, a young child, an adolescent, and all the stages of adult development with a growing awareness of his divine nature.
The Catie Jo Novels: The Bishop's Dilemna and The Bishop's Assumption tell of the adventures of young girl, who has a mission directed by Catherine of Siena and Joan of Arc to have the Catholic Church consider the priesthood of Mary.
A new addition Guardian of the Valley is an urban spiritual fantasy about someone like me in Helena, MT, who is an active mystic working with heavenly forces to protect and build the new earth around him.
The website needs continual work and the addition of new chapters. I hope that my renewed attention can be supported by the public’s renewed support of this work. Any donations that you make can help me and my right hand web partner, Kevin Casey, make this more user friendly and up to date. The readers and I can make this creative project successful and continue to bring my unique form of imagination to the world.
