I have several books which have been published: all in the Christian market: three are in the Children's Ministry Guide to... series. My bestseller is the Children's Ministry Guide to Dealing with Disruptive Children. Alongside these are two books aimed at Youth leaders: 101 Dynamic Ideas for your Youth Ministry; and Dynamic Youth Leadership: Principles in Practice, plus two more story-book style rewrites of Bible books: Acts of God and Dan the Man.
In addition, I have professionally penned five sell-out musical show scripts; four of these were based on parables of Jesus, taking the form of pantomimes; the series began with 'Step-Mamma Mia!', the story of the prodigal son told using characters from the fairy tale about Cinderella with 11 Abba songs.
My recent work includes more than 160 Bible curriculum sessions, with teachers' notes, activity ideas, worksheets, accompanying magazines and articles.
My blog features a range of ways in which to tell the familiar story of the Parable of the Prodigal Son: using poetry, pastiche, dialect, keywords, alphabetical games, a collection of styles, alliteration, viewpoint and so forth.
I have proofread manuscripts professionally, and provided editing services to a number of colleagues while working for a publishing house.
I am currently self-employed, and willing to consider writing/editing/proofing jobs.
