About the Author

From the author: I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the son of a mathematician mother and basketball loving father, and so naturally my passion became writing! It all began as a youth when I wrote tales to go with the computer game Oregon Trail, creating stories to go with Jimmie getting typhoid or Susie getting small pox. Oh the fun of younger days... but one must advance. From there I tackled poetry and received a $100 prize in High School for winning a poetry contest. In college I earned degrees in Journalism and Public Relations. Later I married my wonderful wife, Laura, and we now have an amazing daughter that fills our lives with such joy! Just before I met Laura the idea came to me to write a Fantasy story based on the story of Noah's Ark in the Bible. It was a 'what if' tale centering on Maanta, a merboy who descends from people who, instead of drowning in the flood, adapted to be mer people. Because of Noah's age when he died in the Bible that also left things open for me to incorporate Noah in the book as well. Thus 'The Ark of Humanity' was born. Since then I have been inspired by other things and have gone on to write Eden Legacy and Lazarus, Man. Eden Legacy is another Fantasy work and Lazarus, Man is the story of Lazarus of Bethany, told through tale and tribulation. I've joined forces with other authors as a member of Breakwater Harbor Books and am enthusiastic about the worlds and stories to come! My family is my most treasured achievement. I don't just choose to write. Writing is a part of me.

This was much like a Nicholas Sparks book, but with a Christian edge. It's not my usual genre, but I greatly enjoyed it!

A different type of story for this author, but a well-done romance with elements of suspense and adventure, with a heart of Christian love for others.

Loved this story of faith & love. Highly recommend. I could see this story actually happening. It helped reinforce my testomony of faith in God & our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Although not a chick-lit fan, I really enjoyed this book. There are many obstacles in the main characters' way. There are twists and turns, and you never know what will happen in the next chapter. I highly recommend it, because it's a very enjoyable book.

This book kept me reading steadily. Characters easy to follow, suspenseful , and clearly includes biblical principles.

Story was good. I think a better ending would get a higher rating.

Strange male writing.

Stopped after page 15...very unrealistic story almost immediately and choppy feel to the writing...maybe if I try again later. Way later. Gave 2 stars for good punctuation so far.

I did not enjoy this book. The characters and events did not seem believable to me and there didn't seem to be a reason to care if they got together or not. Thank goodness it was free.
