The poems of Slade Nakoff beckon us to reach out, to seek, and to find, in this seemingly futile world of time. Come read the verses and search for yourself. You might find subjects of life and meaning here are pondered and spread from one mind to another, not in finality, but in simple meditations which bring forth true hope.
Over the course of a Pacific Northwest summer, three generations of women, who believe they have nothing in common, will try to become what they never were…a family. Diane Parks Jeffers swore she’d never set foot back in Pacific Bay, the tiny tourist town on the Oregon Coast where she’d grown up under the harsh judgment of her mother. But when a political scandal threatens the life she clings to in Los Angeles, she has little choice but to pack up her rebellious, uncontrollable teenager and reluctantly return in order to escape the glare of the media and to keep her daughter from spilling to reporters. Her journey back home will lead all three generations of women to revelations of buried secrets and an understanding that—regardless what happens—some ties can never be broken. Susan Wiggs and Robyn Carr fans won’t want to miss this deeply-felt and emotionally poignant story.

My primary focus in ministry has been teaching biblical insight for living . . . for genuine life change.

Through a series of illustrated vignettes, Doodlebug Island chronicles the lives of the slightly off-centered folks who live on the island's scenic shores. Separated from the rest of Arizona by the waters of Oak Creek, Doodlebug Island provides a haven for the inhabitants and their eccentricities, which mix, clash and create a multitude of comical-and usually chaotic-situations. Written with a slightly acerbic but definitely humorous edge, Doodlebug Island challenges the status quo on a variety of issues and engages readers in the triumphs, trials and frustrations of its characters' daily lives.
