Behind The Series
All Things Are Possible
Here's what David says...
"I didn't know what to call this series after I finished The Attaché! It took a little time to figure out I was meant to write a series about a main character with a physical impairment and/or medical condition. Once I knew, it didn't take too long to land on the Biblical mantra, All Things Are Possible, taken from both the book of Matthew and Mark. Jesus was speaking to His disciples in the context of who could be saved. And this connects with my story lines.
My characters are real people in a sense. The main characters who must cope with a life altering physical condition are composites of me. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 1967, at the age of 11, and lost my eyesight due to diabetic complications in 1988, then was formally diagnosed with epilepsy in the early 1990's. I wanted readers to where my shoes for a few hours, to help them grasp what it's like to deal with unexpected problems, and in turn learn to call out to God to provide a way around, over, or through the obstacle.
A Time For Everything
What David has to say...
I tend to be philosophical, which I have discovered conflicts with my Christian world view at times. The book of Ecclesiastes is a collection of philosophical thoughts Solomon wrote to, I think, help explain the human state as it exists in a God created world.
The verses in chapter 3 are well known to many people, even those who aren't avid Bible readers. Since my books are stories Christians as well as non-Christians will hopefully want to read, I selected titles for this series based on parts of familiar verses. "Building," "healing," and "dancing" are themes I intentionally wrote in that order. As a philosophically and logic driven individual, it made sense to me to build first, then reach a middle point of healing, or recovery, before moving on to the grand conclusion-- to dance!
