Suddenly abandoned in the unforgiving, unrelenting and unloving confinement of a world he was never intended to be a part of, Kurtis intricately breaks down the simple conversations he had with his conscience to understand and overcome his burdens, while helping others facing bleak circumstances find their way out, too.
A Compilation of Thoughts is a true portrait of faith, encouraging readers that although staying true to ourselves is difficult, it’s not impossible. We don’t have to conform to what pushes us to lose; we must be motivated to win!

In “An Unexpected Love for Christmas,” (sequel to the best-selling novelette, “A Leap of Faith”) Allison is beautiful, spoiled, judgmental, and doesn’t mind making it known that the only way to live, is by her own terms. Although she desires a relationship, any man wanting a second glance from Allison better look even better on paper than he does in person – which automatically eliminates handsome, hard-working Ronald McMurray from her potential list of suitors.
Ronald McMurray’s janitorial business receives a huge contract over the Christmas holidays, which happens to be where Allison’s financial firm is located. More interested in raising his ten-year-old daughter Rolanda, working and upholding his Christian values than casual dating, southern gentleman Ronald isn’t impressed with Allison’s beauty and material success which suits her just fine since he falls short of her strict standards. A long-term relationship with Ronald is out of the question for Allison, until an unexpected encounter changes her life forever. Will Allison allow God to direct her path, or will she get in her own way before true love finds her?
