 About Self
As a happy husband of one; father of four; and grandfather of four more; I am an Australian inter-church sports chaplain - football in winter and speedways in summer. Judy and I have been married since 1975. I've recently moved from being a Baptist pastor to expand my writing ministry. My Good News column syndicates with newspapers in Australia and the USA, and among our armed service personnel. Words for me are powerful tools, but they are also wonderful toys to play with. This is why I have recently released an e-book - "Noelogisms: Looking at Life - Through a Punster's Ear." It's an alphabetical wordplay list of over 1200 definitions. You can find my Ode to Spam on Youtube - a renamed version of my "Repetititititititive" poem listed below. If it becomes a world-wide hit, it will all be "ode" to Spam. I'm also working on children's books and some coffee-table books, some humour material, and a book that seeks to make personal witnessing more personal for the witness and for the witnessee.
