Social media, God, Alt-left, and Alt-Right meet on American streets in Fortress: a Wayfarers Story in Kindle and paperback

What Will You Do If This Story Comes True?

First off, I must point out that there is occasional strong language in this book, as I always endeavor to depict realistic speech of characters.

As I was writing Fortress: a Wayfarers Story, I knew that so much of it was not fiction at all. Like most of my fiction, the story deals with the natural and supernatural struggles undertaken while navigating the contemporary storms of this fallen world. However, with Fortress, I feel as though not only me, but all of us have been inserted into the story as characters; many of us against our wishes. We have been dragged into the battle between God and Satan; much of it being fought in American streets with soldiers of alt-left and alt-right slugging it out. Wealthy commanders who peer down from their ivory towers issue the orders to the foot soldiers through television talking heads of the mainstream news and the mavens of social media. The multi-layered fog of deception belched from the exhaust ports of this misdirection machine obfuscates the truth, and creates the appearance that Satan is winning. If you tell that lie often enough, it will become the truth.

Fortress is today. It’s gritty. It illustrates what happens when God is asked to leave the building. It details who the world’s powers are, and previews the fulfillment of their machinations. While you may not be an indie journalist, author, or singer/songwriter, you are a character in this story.

What will you do if this story comes true? Get it in Kindle and paperback on Amazon.

Now is the Time to Pray

This writer prays that you are praying. I pray that you’re praying for protection, strength, discernment, and wisdom as the worst of the Storm is still a funnel cloud on the distance. But, the probability of today’s funnel cloud being tomorrow’s mushroom cloud is increasing.

We are entering into a most turbulent and tumultuous time. The seas will rage and ships will sink. The earth is – and will continue to – buckle and quake. I pray that you’re praying to be aware. There will be a period of silence before sounds fill the air that will be discordant, and yet not as terrible as the odors that will accompany them. A period of relative silence and calm may be upon us this day, but don’t be lulled into dreamland, for we are being set up for a fall.

There may be little point in getting your house in order, as your house may cease to exist. Still, there’s good sense in stocking up on non-perishable foods, bottled water, blankets, and a first-aid kit. Matches, flashlights, AA, C, and D batteries, and a battery-powered AM/FM/Shortwave radio are all important, and will help you to ride out the Storm as the Riders on the Storm run roughshod on the people of God and on a free-falling nation.

Understand that the growing Storm is multi-faceted; being meteorological, seismic, governmental, oil, terror, militaristic, financial, and spiritual. This summer won’t be the Summer of Love, and this fall could see the free-fall of a nation. Events will be wide-ranging and fast-paced. News reporting will be even more biased, deceptive, and propagandized in the coming months than it is now; but if you loose your electric power, your cable, and your internet – none of this will matter. Now is the time to gather your family, your friends, and your supplies. Now is the time to pray hard. If you have thus far refused the free gift of salvation that only Jesus Christ offers; now is the time to pray and accept Him as your Lord and Savior in faith and in your heart – not just in your head.

Dear Lord – so many reject you. They have heard your story and yet they believe that they are such good people that Your sacrifice and Your gift are not needed to get them into a heaven that they may not believe even exists. As the multi-faceted Storm gains and increases in the coming weeks and months – many of these misguided individuals will die. Please Jesus, appeal to their hearts so at least more will come to the foot of the cross so they may stand at your throne as set-apart and redeemed.

This Storm is a killer and so many are unprepared for the mayhem that is soon to consume us. Please Lord, use us to appeal to them gently yet firmly, so that your message, your truth, your life, and your unfailing love will be accepted and understood by the hard of hearing and the hard of heart. Thank you, Jesus, for loving us and using us as Storm Troopers. Prepare us now to prepare them. In your glorious name we pray – amen.

The Wayfarers: Revised Edition Christian end-times fiction in Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, and paperback.

I Am the Leader You Have Waited For

I bring peace and prosperity, and a new world vision…

*A blog written by a character who appears in the novel The Wayfarers: Revised Edition. Read the book in Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, or paperback, and you’ll discover who this enterprising and beguiling man is.


The world is mine. What I say is so, because I am the leader you have waited for! I bring peace and prosperity, and a new world vision. We are one, people – I said we are one! Repeat after me: WE – ARE – ONE!

Christian bigotry will not be tolerated, and the Bible is outlawed. Beyond that, there will be no more religious intolerance because you all worship the same spirit of the same god. You might call him Allah, but that is not quite right. You might call him Buddha, but that isn’t accurate. But whatever you do, do not mention the name of Jesus in my presence, or you will meet the death kiss of my wrath! And true, we are one world, but I had better not hear of any FM stations playing that insipid former MTV staple We Are the World. That song is worse than the drivel that was played on K-LOVE before I had that “positive and encouraging” rubbish taken off the air!

I am suave, sophisticated, devilishly handsome and possessed of acute intelligence. I am an economic mastermind and a peacemaker extraordinaire. I have all the answers to the world’s problems because simply put, I am the answer! Ah, pardon my sarcasm, but do those statements smack of a lack of humility?

America is no longer a superpower, but instead a part of the North American Union; which is one of my 10 kingdoms. Yes, the world is now a better place because we are one, WE – ARE – ONE!

Now that those Jesus freaks were taken away by our friends from a distant planet – to whom we owe a debt of gratitude – we can be one government, one religion, one economy, and one world united in peace!

Repeat after me, WE – ARE – ONE!

This is far too easy. I have the world in the palm of my hand, and when I say jump you all should ask “how high?” And ah, yes, it seems like the citizens of the erstwhile U.S.A. are the most Pavlovian of all you dogs!

Bow before me, because I am the king of the world, and I am the solution to all the world’s problems.

The Wayfarers end-times christian fiction featuring a young character with wisdom beyond his years

Wisdom Beyond His Years

I can get you free Wi-Fi even when it’s not free…that is as long as the internet is up and running

*A blog written by a character who appears in the novel The Wayfarers: Revised Edition. Read the book in Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, or paperback, and you’ll discover who this fine young chap is.


I’ve been called the Young One with Wisdom Beyond His Years, and I guess you could say I’m not one of your stereotypical millennials. Wisdom is wasted on the old, and youth is wasted on the young, right? Yeah, I am the youngest of this group of wayfarers, but am I the smartest? Well, I do know a thing or two about a thing or three!

I can get you free Wi-Fi even when it’s not free…that is as long as the internet is up and running. I’ve got the latest cutting-edge electronic communication devices and if you don’t have them you are either old or just plain old-fashioned. Of course, cell towers have to be providing non-compromised signals for these tech toys to work! What if suddenly, all cell and internet service went down, like there was a kill switch? You’d have a hard time functioning, or should I say bro, you won’t be able to function!

So, here I am walking down some snow-covered path with three of my best pals. We’re heading west because my good friend in the orange knit hat says that is the direction we must go – and he seems to know more about the situation – even though I am the young one with wisdom!

Now, there is some woman walking with us and I’m still trying to figure out where she came from, and why we’re even here in the first place! Bro, it’s cold and not only that, I was supposed to go Christmas shopping this evening! But, I’m wondering if the stores are even open now because some really freaky stuff is going on and I’m a little scared I’ve gotta admit. Yeah, something bad and freaky started going down this afternoon, and I’ll bet a lot of plans for a lot have people have been changed.

I’ve got my backpack on and I’m prepared for the worst. Somehow I can’t help but think that it’s going to be a long, cold night out here walking to wherever it is we’re going. Man, I’m getting tired just thinking about it, and why won’t my data plan work? What the…

The Wayfarers end-times, christian fiction suspense book in Kindle and paperback

The Wolf

The wolf is out there and it’s tailing you; whether you’ve come to grips with that fact or merely live in blissful denial…

*A blog co-written by a pair of characters who appears in the novel The Wayfarers: Revised Edition. Read the book in Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, or paperback, and you’ll discover who they are.


The wolf is out there and it’s tailing you; whether you’ve come to grips with that fact or merely live in blissful denial…

Not all wolves are evil; just the one that lurks in the shadows of your life. He’s out of sight; hidden in the self-induced blindness of your deliberately-narrowed periphery. You can’t drink him away, drug him away, eat him away, or wish him away. Friend, the wolf will devour you if you fail to take substantive action against him.

You feel his presence, surely enough. In your spirit he arouses those feelings of anxiety, agitation, impatience, discomfort, and fear. But you fail to deal with the wolf – you merely take out your disquiet on everyone around you. Indeed, your aggression is displaced because you know that it won’t defeat the Wolf. To the contrary, your anger, pain, and boastfulness only fuel and feed the wolf and further strengthen his flexible haunches so as to explode onto you and defeat you!

So, go ahead…live in private denial and blame everyone else for your public pain. Take it out on those around you and let your therapist tell you that it’s “completely normal.” Have a few more drinks and boast about how many you can put away. Waste more money on lottery tickets – with the hope that this time you’ll “hit the big one.” But what would you do with the money? If I were a gambler, I’d bet a dollar to a donut that you’d blow your big winnings on Wolf Chow. Yeah, you’d have more money to allow that beast to eat better!

Friend, you must deal with and eliminate the wolf, or he will devour you.
