Elenore he is immediately attracted to her reserved yet captivating
ways. When Rick finds himself in a dangerous situation far beyond his
ability to cope, he uses drastic measures that change the direction
of his otherwise dull, uneventful life and may cause him the girl of
his dreams. Rick’s careless and thoughtless actions bring tragic
results, yet he still believes God endorsed his plan. From the writer
of “None of Our Hands Are Clean,” Ralph Thompson, Jr. tells a
story of a young man who knows of God but is unsure about God’s
direction in his life when things get out of hand. Is God truly the
orchestrator when one choice leads to a life time of consequences?

What I do
I write Christian fiction. Like most people, I’ve had in this life highs and lows. As a personal view, I believe God puts us through various circumstances to prepare us for upcoming challenges. Because of that personal view, I wonder if others see their lives in a similar way. I put this stuff on paper as a means to reach out to those folks who may be interested. If in some way I can get them to consider deeply their circumstances or be encouraged about the future, I am overjoyed about that.
How I do it
I have a year-old laptop that I use to craft manuscripts. I also have a 4’ by 2’ desk in my dining space. (I rarely entertain, so I used my dining space as an office of sorts). I’m more of a morning writer – if I can get words on paper before the business of the day commences, I feel good about the daily progress of writing. The dining space faces the television in the living room. I envisioned a writing space like this for years, and I’m thankful to have it.
