My Mother was an Angel                                            The Lord inspired me to write this Christian Novel. in these last days we need something we can sink our teeth into. No! This is not a "Preachy" book, or how to "Get Rich". But the book will show you how God still does the impossible through prayer.   He still parts the sea.He is still in the ferry furnace and He will be with you in your lions den as well  as when you face your Goliah.   The young lady in this novel, Joyce Lee Simpson,prayed for a miracle, in spite of impossibilites, but she read in Psalms 37:4."Delight thyself also in the Lord:and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart."Can you believe she thought every prayed would come true? What do you think?

I'm so glad you dropped by my website. Now you can take a look at my western novels. Without calling any names or getting myself into any more trouble than I have already, can I tell you what I think about most other westerns? I think most of them are boring. If it weren't for stampedes, lightning, Indians, and cattle rustlers most western writers would be up “Stink Creek” without a paddle.

Eating dust from New Mexico to Abilene, sleeping on the ground, drinking black coffee, sopping red-eye gravy and munching on pinto beans is not my cup of tea. Oh yes, yes, I know it happened...but two hundred and seventy-four pages of black coffee and beans is a little much, don’t you think?

I know I’m painting with a wide brush. There are some western novel writers who I have to admire. Their style of storytelling is unequaled.  And I live to see the day that my writing is as good as theirs.

Now since you’ve heard my bickering, bellering and belching knowing full well anybody can give negative criticism;

I strive to make my novels a cut above the rest. This is what I do give you a successful western novel. I keep my characters young and active and give them short names, easy for my readers to remember. I use only enough characters in my story to keep you, the reader from being confused. The first book I ever read only had two speaking characters, Dick and Jane – and, of course, their dog named Spot.

A dear lady who was an avid reader and just loved my novels asked me:
"Charlie, how can you write and make me laugh and cry at the same time?" I learned long ago you can move people with what you say and the way you say it. You can call a man a dog and he’ll want to fight, but you can call him a “Big Dog” and he’ll want to hug your neck.

I write exciting novels. I write stories of love, mystery, suspense, humor and grief - and they are all in the same book. And why not? I don’t use jargon or beat around the bush with writer’s block wasting your reading time, while trying to think of something to say.

Each of my novels is very educational, but I wouldn’t recommend their use for school curriculum. I often include Bible scriptures, but I wouldn’t recommend our pastor preaching from my novels. I tell funny stories and jokes, but I doubt Jay Leno a stand-up comedian would buy it for that purpose alone.

Now, if you are looking for a well written, western novel - that will hold your interest from page one all the way to “the end”- you will find them on this web site.

P. S. You will not find any “F, N, or S” words in any of my writing. Have a blessed day!
