Dancing During the Storm is a collection of stories I have written over the years. They represent a desire to praise God despite the storms in my life. As the saying goes, you are going into a storm, in the middle of a storm or coming out of a storm. All of these stories tell of people who enjoy the life that God has given them and live it to the fullest. Each character has a storm in their life which they are going into, in the midst of, or coming out of.
His Favorite One is a short story about the first man who ever lived. At first he is not mentioned by name, but it is obvious. This story is not the Bible. It is just an idea of what life might have been like for Adam in my imagination. He was the only person alive with no other human companion. He knew what it was like to commune with God in perfect peace. This story also speaks to the sacrifice that is required when we step out of God’s will for our lives.
The second story, First Date, comes from an unpublished novel I have written titled, Il Pentimento. It means the regrets.
In the final story, from another unpublished novel, The Space Trader tells the story of a twenty something young woman, Aun, who goes against her mother’s wishes and joins the military. It is the most powerful military in the universe
