I’ve known God for a long time, but only in the past 15 years have I really got to know Him. I can tell you that there’s nothing about me that’s anywhere near as interesting as He is. But since you asked, I’m an old man. I am married to a beautiful lady. East Carolina by birth; Clan Gordon by marriage. So I put vinegar on my BBQ and drink Scotch and dark ale. I am extremely prejudiced about BBQ, Scotch and dark ale. Otherwise, I’ll try to listen to your viewpoint, even if it’s wrong… 🙂
My favorite authors are C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Stephen Lawhead and Ayn Rand. Three Christians and an Atheist. In high school and college my favorites were almost every Science Fiction writer. Rand makes the list only because of Atlas Shrugged. Lawhead’s stories of King Arthur and The Song of Albion put him on the list, but the King Raven trilogy, Patrick, Byzantium and most of his other tales are equally as good. Tolkien woke in me the motive to get out and have adventures. And Lewis revealed the true nature of the universe to me.
Mystery stories are among my favorite genres. However, I refuse to rank Doyle, Sayers, Chesterton, Poe, Christie, Wolfe, Hammett, Gardner, et al. (Who did I forget?) I will say that my wife and I are enjoying Shakespeare & Hathaway, Death In Paradise, Agatha Raisin, Midsomer Murders, Hamish Macbeth, and all sorts of other British TV mystery stories.

We have one cat and one dog. Oh,yeah, ‘Uisdean’ means ‘always stone’ or ‘forever stone’ & it is pronounced to rhyme with ‘ocean’…so “ewisjun” (the D has a J sound).
