Doug's books:

More than just a book, it's a message. About the strength of family, the power of prayer and the battles that rage against them.

A silent prayer from a little boy..."Please make mommy & daddy stop fighting." Moments later, they did--forever.

A heart's longing from an old sailor...He looked toward the sky, "Dear God...maybe it's not too late." The lines blurred and he thought he heard the sound of children--calling him Papa.

A Divine connection for a wounded warrior...Could anyone see past the scars and love a soldier, twice burned--once in the flesh and once in the heart?

And all they ever wanted was a big, noisy, messy, happy family. Was that too much to ask?
God is near the broken hearted and puts the lonely in families.


What folks are saying about The Voice: 

Doug i enjoyed your book sooo much. 
I spent two days enveloped in the spirit of your story. I cried and I laughed.  Your picture words put me right in that
delightful sea setting. Loved mention of Mankato.

All in all I loved your book. I have read 33 books this
summer. I have to say yours was the best. Thank you for writing such an inspiring book. In fact,  I stopped and prayed on several pages when the content spoke to me. In other words I heard,
The Voice.

Sharry... Blessings  

"If you believe in the power of prayer, you will love this book. I was hooked on the first page. The characters were so real and genuine. The book is a refreshing change from the ordinary. The battle waging between good and evil comes to life in this story."

Author of the trilogy, Jesus My Son, Mary's Journal, by Mary Bailey, Kentucky

A great read
"The Voice is a delightful story of love, dogged faith in a God who does not always answer in the way we expect, and of the power of prayer.

Set among sailing boats and the sea, the characters are so well portrayed that I grew truly fond of them and found myself drawn into the story, rooting for them in their difficult circumstances and rejoicing at their victories.

There are some great lessons within the pages, of the benefit of dogged perseverance, of praying in every situation and of the way God is in control in spite of appearances, at times.

There is also a glimpse into the invisible world where the spiritual battle takes place and the effect of faith and prayer in that arena.

All in all a great read which will leave you enriched by the experience."

Author of, God in the ICU, Dave Walker, South Africa

a book to share !
"I literally just finished the last page of this book. I had to keep reading, I couldn't put it down I NEEDED to know what happened next. This book is full of love, tears, sadness joy and adventure. Most importantly God. This book was so inspirational, and kept me guessing and going, I could really play the characters in my mind too. Awesome!"

Sadie Tyson, Florida

Mighty warrior? 

Ordinary would be more like it. That's how he lived. That's how he retired and that's how planned to die. Ordinary. It rubbed him the wrong way if he thought about it, but for the most part, he'd surrendered to it. 

His youthful dreams were just that-dreams. He was never meant to do anything great. When he tried all it did was put him in a spiritual battle that cost him his wife and precious time with his kids. 

He'd not make that mistake again. No, he was ordinary-and that's how he'd stay. 

Except for one thing... 

He knew The Voice that woke him in the night or arrested him by day was God. But doesn't that happen to everyone? Just like back in the Garden of Eden, when God walked with Adam and Eve, in the cool of the day just to chat. God doesn't change. He still likes to do that today. Everybody knows that-it's just normal, right?

Burt's ordinary life was only a breath away from extraordinary...yours is too.


It is good for you to read this,

alas, it may cost me my life.

If I perish…I perish.

The journal held secrets it needed to tell

Why they showed me, I do not know.

At first, I did not believe it was true.

Now I do.

So will you.

Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
~ Jesus

This short story is about an old, worn, leather bound journal given to me by a stranger.

It’s about a man who lost his wife and children, yet prayed for them the rest of his life.

It’s about a conspiracy that affects us all.

It’s about spiritual warfare.

Although, the story lands on the fiction shelf, a little research will expose that many of the events and dates are historically accurate, making the storyline plausible.

The golden thread that weaves the plot together comes from a belief in the strength of family, the power of prayer and the battles that rage against them…in that the story holds true. 

Is it fact or fiction…you decide

WARNING: this short story is NOT politically correct.


Grieving Grace is penned with pain as words bleed from heart to page.

Share real life stories as they happened and answer tough questions like:

  • How do you say good-bye?
  • How do you tell her she's dying?
  • What do kids know about going?
  • What common symptoms accompany dying?
  • What happens in the final weeks, days and hours?

Death's constant companion is grief and its home looks like an endless tunnel. But it's no place to call home--only a place to travel through.

There is an exit to grief's tunnel and you can find it.

These stories, although sown in sorrow, provide comfort and hope for those traveling through the dark days of grief.
