Doppelganger

"Doppelganger" is a German word meaning "double-goer".  In usage, it refers to the ghostly counterpart of a living person. In German legends, the Doppelganger haunt their living counterparts.

In The Fourth Kingdom Karl Helmick's cloning facility is called Doppelganger.  Through cloning, the mythological concept of the doppelganger actually becomes reality since the clones are exact replicas of living things.

The Fourth Kingdom is set at a time when cloning…

The Fourth Kingdom

In the late 1980's, Joyce watched a "60 Minutes" interview with an old German man who was talking about civilization's greatest need.  According to him, the greatest need of civilization was for a savior--not a religious savior as we have traditionally believed but a "Secular Savior."  A secular savior could unite countries and…

BEFORE THE WHITE ROSE IS FREE ON KINDLE

This is a general market short story I wrote a few years ago, and it's free on Kindle for the next three days.

 

While it isn't Christian fiction, it is a story of hope, not giving up and what happens when you do.

Last Resort - a review

Is their love really enough? Despite a rocky beginning, Faith and Matt find that they are obviously meant for each other.

Unfortunately, Faith’s psychotic ex-boyfriend Fred doesn’t see it that way. He will stop at nothing to get Faith back, whether she likes it or not. Terrorized by vandalism, arson, and even attempted murder,…

The Girl with the Green Eyes

My brother, Israel, was an amazingly talented artist.  (I say "was" because although he is very much alive and well, he no longer draws or pursues art.)  Although he had no formal lessons or training, as a teenager, he spent hours sketching.  When our brother Ben became a youth pastor, Israel decorated the wall of Ben's office with a…

The Touch by Randall Wallace a review by Fred St Laurent

Randall Wallace spoke at the Christy awards this year. He was engaging, witty, authentic and funny. Of course the first thing he did was spill a glass of water at his table. The second action he took was to blush. The water glass accident and subsequent blushing were endearing. I mention all of this because Mr. Wallace is unpretentious and likable and so are the…
