About the Book
Living in the absolute beauty of the Sonoran Desert requires some expression of gratitude. And that's really what my writing is all about. As a retired clergyperson, I am instinctively drawn to the obvious beauty of the surrounding mountains and the vastness of the desert, and to the spirituality deeply embedded in this location. But I am also a storyteller...thus The Courtship of Uncle Tillis, a collection of humorous and serious life events affecting the little farming community of Hickoryville. You will laugh and think...two good things...when you read these "almost true" verses. If you like photography, as I do, then you will want to look at The Earth In Bloom. It's a collection of photographs that I think are beautiful and inviting into reflection, perhaps meditation. My sincere hope is that you enjoy what you read and see.
