Here’s a new look at the Old Testament...but this time the women’s voice gets the prominence it deserved all along. Always witty, often funny, and definitely never boring, the women’s common sense outlook puts quite a different spin on the bible stories you think you remember. Finally, take a clear look at the outrages that have been swept under the carpet for centuries and laugh at some of the nonsense that’s been hiding there as well. The men who wrote the Bible have had the field to themselves for centuries. Let’s see that ancient world through a woman’s eyes. You may be surprised!read more
I’m a Canadian author—a pragmatic optimist with rather eclectic interests and a pervasive sense of humour.
Toronto born and bred, I live by the lake with a motley array of dogs and a cat, all but myself being of unknown origin, in a comfortable old house filled with books. Over a thousand books. Books in every nook and cranny. And now, since there can never be too many books, I'm writing more.
Once More, From the Beginning highlights the women in the bible. It's about time! And believe me, they see things quite differently.
In Dodging Shells, you'll meet the irrepressible Tommy, as he fights his way through Italy in World War II. You'll love Tommy. I do.
Next? Well, that's a secret yet. Stay tuned...read more
Reviews for Once More, From the Beginning
First and foremost this book is delightfully irreverent but brim-full of wit & humour. I read 'Once More From The Beginning' some time ago on Harper & Collins' highly competitive Authonomy site, which provides a selection process for promising first time authors. This book more than held its own, comprising, as it does,of competent prose, scintillating wit, an intriguingly different perspective of biblical themes and revealing aspects of the character traits of the major players. Light on veneration but never irreligious its acerbic approach certainly appealed to my sense of fun. An enjoyable and highly recommended read. Robert Davidson. The Tuzla Run.read more
