My first book was published in April, 2014, by Resource Publications (An imprint of Wipf and Stock Publishers). The book is entitled:
Beyond Me: Poems about Spirit in Scripture, Psychotherapy, and Life.
The book seeks to capture the wonder, mystery, and healing power of the Divine Spirit and its activity in human beings, life, and relationships. This Divine Presence is often felt or glimpsed as Mystery--beyond us, yet within us--which grabs our attention and pulls us into a deeper and fuller exploration of what life and human existence is all about. As an ordained Presbyterian minister serving as a Pastoral Psychotherapist, I'm thrilled and fascinated to notice and then capture in these poems the congruency between psychodynamics, spiritual growth, and scriptural stories. Personal experiences and scriptural accounts throw light on each other, and I find poetry to be a format capable of holding and integrating both in ways that can promote psychological and spiritual healing and growth.
My second book was published on July 27, 2017, by Resource Publications (an imprint of Wipf and Stock Publications, Eugene, OR).

My third book Drawn to the Light: Poems and Essays was published in August, 2019.
