Now it’s time for me to share about a new thrilling survival adventure with you! The title is The Legend of Okeanos: a Tale of Restoration, Survival, and a Great White Shark, and like all my adventures, this one has a story behind the story.
The Honor Series
Ever since I was a teen, I have enjoyed writing stories for others to read. For several years, I wrote anything that appealed to me. But in 2003, I began to write more seriously for Jesus Christ as He began to renew my mind and lead me to live more and more for Him.
Writing honest Christian fiction took time to develop. I wrote a series about honor, even before I wrote The COIL Series, but I knew the Honor Series didn’t glorify Christ. I rewrote a couple of the stories, tossed two, and gutted another two to use the parts someday in other novels. In the life of most writers, there are usually a few manuscripts on the shelves collecting dust. That includes me.
Raised from the Dust to become The Legend of Okeanos
Ascending Honor was book three of that original series, which had character PRS Agent Wes Trimble in it. You first met one-eyed Wes in COIL Book Four, Dark Vessel. But with its sister books parted out for other stories, Ascending Honor became a stand-alone novel. Renamed a couple times, it now stands before you as The Legend of Okeanos: a Tale of Restoration, Survival, and a Great White Shark. You can read an introduction here.
I have more to share with you about the writing of The Legend of Okeanos, so please stay tuned to read about the story behind the story. May this adventure touch you as much as it has ignited certain attitudes for Christ within myself.
See you on the next page!
