George, The Boy Who Could Fly
A little ditty about a precious little boy living in the South has has the secret ability to fly. I wanted to write something funny, Southern and yet, epxress something
important about living for Jesus. I promise you'll dig it! You can either download it or get a hard copy. It's probably for kids 11 or so and for adults too!
The Children of Methuselah
(links to chapters below)
It's a real live novel - go figure - years in the making and probably
more years in the completion. It's about four people who have lived
for hundreds of years.
It's a 'Christian novel' per se, and tells the stories of the four lives
and how they cross paths in the end.
The 'children' are:
Mister Pullen - an Englishman, born on the moors in western England in the 17th century. A very godly man and I've enjoyed writing about his
devotional times and his intimacy with 'Father God' - his favourite term to refer to the Lord.
His physical appearance is about the age of
45 - 50, a huge man, very obese, a very kind face and gentle manner.
Gabrielle - a German woman (with a French name - go figure) with striking white/blonde hair, tall and slender and never married. Again,
I've enjoyed writing about her intimacy with Christ from a woman's perspective. It's been interesting to approach the issues she's lived with
for three hundred years in her singleness.
Reddy, or 'White Feather' is a Cherokee of unknown age - probably well over six hundred years old. Imagine the plight of a Cherokee
in the north Georgia hills during the Great Removal Act. His treatment by his own people and his conversion experience have been
fun to write. His is tall with traditionally long, dark hair and 'red' as his nickname implies.
Misha - or Michael - the Slavic. He's good-looking, wild-haried and adventourous to a fault. He struggles more than the other three
with his near immortal age. He and Gabrielle are romantically attached for a period.
