Preacher’s Kid: Honest Faith, Real World

Preacher’s Kid: Honest Faith, Real World

Bio

In 30-plus years as a journalist, I have written about subjects as varied as business, science, politics and the environment to sports, history and religion. Over the past 20 years, I have also freelanced magazines and ghostwritten numerous books with biographical, inspirational, historical and sociological themes. Among my awards over the years I most treasure earning regional recognition from the Society of Professional Journalists as Religion Writer of the Year, and finalist honors for both the Religion Newswriters Association's Templeton and Cornell feature writing prizes.

Christ not born on Dec. 25? 'Merry Christmas,' anyway

A Congress Carol? Dickens' Scrooge listened, Washington is not.
