Today I am pleased to welcome J.W. Landmon to Interviews & Reviews. J.W. is an author, musician, and firm believer in the saving grace of the gift of Christ's sacrifice for all of Mankind. He brings his experiences and renown creativity to life in all that he does. His goal is to honour the Lord, and share his message of Good News with all who will hear.
As a writer, one of JW's greatest pleasures is bringing his readers to the question of 'what if?'. And with his style of using winding, cliff-hanger scenarios, he uses his gift towards an ever-present acknowledgement that God is far above the understanding we, as humans, are able to gain while here on earth.
Today I am delighted to welcome author Terry Barnes. Terry is an award-winning novelist who has written two novels plus numerous articles. He is also an online, adjunct professor of religion with a focus on worldviews. He lives in Kansas with his wife of over 36 years, and is a father, grandfather, and (of course) a fly fisherman. You can visit his website at: http://terrybarnes.us/.
When he is not writing, Darrell is in jail - actually several jails or prisons. And he’s been there for over 30 years. As the co-founder of Souls for Christ, Darrell ministers to serial killers, mass murderers robbers, drug dealers, and other serious lawbreakers.
Born in 1945, Darrell grew up on his family’s farm. He spent his summers reading, wandering in the surrounding woods, fishing in the neighbor’s pond and learning to love nature.
In high school, he perfected the art of hiding a novel behind a textbook. While the rest of the class labored over equations Darrell sailed the seven seas, followed a snowy trail in the Yukon, climbed the Rockies, swam the Amazon and fought wars in foreign lands. In books he discovered worlds far beyond the hot, boring classroom.
At age 49 Darrell put pencil to paper and began recording the stories rumbling around in his head. His first book sold a grand total of six copies. Not one to give up, he went back to the drawing board. He has since graduated to word processing, yet he still makes the same mistakes. It's just easier to correct them.
Through trial and error and more error Darrell learned to write. His books have gained five stars from many of those who count: his readers.
