Why FIRST ROSE is Such a Good Read...Now.

With all the negative things in the world, one needs to be drawn aside to focus their attention on more permanent and happy issues. I know there are those who think it nonsense to consider life after death but Jesus, the greatest teacher who ever walked the earth, promised us eternal life. He said if we believe in Him, we would have eternal life and never die. Of course He wasn't referring to the physical body.

FIRST ROSE is More Than a Book

FIRST ROSE takes you somewhere only the imagination can travel to. However, if you have studied the Bible as I have done, you will find everything in the book to be in harmony with it. Though I (in the course of writing the book) recalled what others had told me about Heaven, I still made sure it did not conflict with what the Bible teaches. Actually the Bible is silent about much of Heaven and only gives us a glimpse into our life after this one. I think it is important when writing fictional… Continue

Why First Rose Needed to be Written



It has been my experience through the years as an ordained minister that people recoil from expressing what they think the "after life" may contain. Since the Bible has given only "the Ezekiel bones" of eternal life and its content, it is up to us who want to know to facilitate the flesh, sinew and body of it.

More About First Rose

First Rose is a book about what one imagines will occur immediately after death. This is a subject that few people discuss with one another. The Bible is relatively silent on the subject except for the fact that "to be absent from the body is to be present with Christ." First Rose is a work of fiction but it is possible that God has revealed to us some of the events likely to transpire following physical death. Just as dreams (through which God speaks)must be "rightly divided" so must our… Continue
