 About Self
I am an inter-church football and speedway chaplain in my home town in Southeastern Australia, after being away for over forty years. Judy and I have been married since 1975, and our family of four has grown up and added four wonderful grandchildren: two girls and two boys. 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. I love using words for their power and clarity, but I also love playing with them. This is why I have recently released an e-book - "Noelogisms: Looking at Life - Through a Punster's Ear," which comprises an alphabetical list of definitions for over 1200 examples of wordplay. A recent Challenge topic inspired me to rename the "Repetititititititive" poem below as "An Ode to Spam" and put it on Youtube for fun, so feel free to have a look. 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.
