I love using words and expressing and articulating my thoughts in stories, reviews, articles, poetry, and other kinds, and in chatting about the writer's life. My first publications were the high school magazine and the national youth newspaper. From there I published in Reality, GiveWay (Later called Transmission), Crosslink, Kid's Highway,, Challenge Weekly, Daystar, The Dominion Post, The Evening Post, Otago Daily Times, Eco-Living, Cutting Edge, Communiqué, Christian Herald, Church Times, Good News Paper, Wel-Com, Youth Worker, Anglican Taonga, Faces Mag, Beliefnet, The Secret Place, and the Upper Room devotional.
