about me

Until 2005, it was legal in the United States to execute a person for a crime he committed as a child. From 1994 to 2002, the US carried out twelve such executions.

In 22 of 50 states, a child of any age may be tried as an adult in a murder case. Although they may no longer be executed, children as young as 13 are currently serving sentences of life imprisonment.

Will of God deals with a six-year-old child who is caught up in the justice system of the Plymouth Colony in 1665.

I have spent many hours trying to turn a sprawling bush into a tiny bonsai tree. If you read the book, please note any word, phrase, paragraph, etc., that you think does not move along fast enough.

Numbers Up

Kevin Clark

1, 2, 3, 4 a body lies upon the floor.
5, 6, 7, 8 crime of passion, crime of hate?


Renowned mathematician Dr. Michael Townsend has been found lying dead on his office floor. As a world leader in the science of data encryption, Dr. Townsend has many secrets--secrets that could lead to a new understanding of the nature of the world, or to the deaths of many. The dead often carry their secrets to the grave, and someone is hoping that Dr. Townsend will stay quiet permanently. From the frozen seas of the Kamchatka Peninsula to the Middle East to the National Security Agency in Washington, Dr. Townsend has touched many lives. But who is the prime suspect?


"In Numbers Up, Kevin Clark skillfully interweaves conflicting designs: those of spies, killers, cops, blackmailers, bankers, arms dealers, and--maybe--the Designer of life. He has the reader sitting at the edge of his seat, contemplating the brutality of this world which, despite itself, hints of another." --Michael Behe, author of Darwin's Black Box.

Chapter 15 "Jerusha by now..." I don't think you need this sentence. "Today, Jerusha was arguing..." why not give us this in dialog? "doubtfully moral" should this be "morally doubtful"? I'm really not sure about the ending. The main problem I have with it is that Jerusha would not really ha... view book

Chapter 14 "1'11" I think should be "I'll" Simon seems to know more than the Apostles knew of Jesus' mission. The Scriptures seem to indicate that they did not know he would die, and that they did not understand his mission fully until after his death. Wouldn't people also have been a little fr... view book

Rama chapter 13 I wonder if there is too much philosophy in this chapter and not enough of actual events. Don't know. "half-brother", "my mother by marriage" You are positing that Mary remarried after Joseph died? If this were so, why would Jesus entrust Mary to John, rather than to Simon the ... view book

Rama, Chapter 12 Good chapter, things are coming to a head. First sentence, how about "When Zechariah finally did return, he found Jerusha scrubbing her tabletop." "cadavar" should be "cadaver" "get mixed up" how about "become confused" "for sure" how about "certainly" "Fair you well" shou... view book

Chapter 11 Rama I really liked this chapter, especially the end part where Jerusha is simply filled with frustation and almost doesn't know why she is still living. What you don't say is heartbreaking. "She ordered some fruit" some seems extraneous here "she would have to" perhaps "she would ... view book
