I am the author of 25 books on prayer and spirituality, with a background in retreat work, spiritual direction, alcohol and drug abuse counseling, and biology. Publishers of my books include Crossroads, Publ., Ave Maria Press, Liguori Publications, and Pelican Publishing Co. During the past five years, I have also ventured into publishing on demand with Lulu Press. Current employment is at Heartland Center for Spirituality in Great Bend, KS, where I present retreats, workshops, and spiritual direction.
Degrees include a M.S. in Biology from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (1974) and a Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Direction from the Graduate Theological Foundation (1996).
I am married and the father of three grown children, with four grandchildren as well. My wife and I reside in Bel Aire, KS, which is just outside of Wichita.
