About the Author:

Steve has worked in corporate America as a systems analyst and driven a taxi, written a novel, produced his father’s play, published short stories, and a lot more.

A Guide to the Psalms of David

Although typically thought of as hymns of praise to God, The Psalms of David are so much more. They are invoked to bless, as well as to curse, to comfort and instruct, to lament and inspire. In tone, they span the gamut of human emotions from ecstasy to despair, grief to relief, fear to awe, indignation to remorse, and rage to love. They talk about the rewards of righteousness, the pitfalls of evil, the grandeur of the universe, as well as recount God’s compassion, benevolence and deliverance.

In short, The Psalms are a fabulously rich gold mine whose ore has not been extracted for lack of tools. With its unique taxonomy classifying all 150 psalms within four major categories, this book rectifies that major shortcoming and makes the psalms accessible to the English speaking public of all races, religions, and creeds; indeed to any human who can benefit from their wisdom and guidance. That, and a translation which engages the reader emotionally,should prove a resource for an individual of any faith who is suffering or directionless—to find solace, gain wisdom, receive a new awareness or be transformed, resulting in healing and/or reconsideration of personal ethics—to be more inclined toward “clean hands and a pure heart.”

God is Good

Billions of people all over the world believe in a Being known in the English world as God. Among His many names, Moslems call him Allah, Christians use The Father, and Jews say Hashem. It seems fair to say the overwhelming majority believe so on faith. What is understandably more difficult to prove is that God is righteous, that God is good, that God is not an evil being in the sky who loves to watch mankind suffer. This relates to the age- old question, why does it appear the righteous suffer while the wicked thrive.

God and Man Love on the Rocks


“On the Rocks,” was originally a phrase used for ships which ran aground and broke apart. But nothing could be a better metaphor to describe God’s relationship with man — hence the title of this book. For God created us with love and gave us His heart and soul:

And God created Man in His Own Likeness;
In God’s image created He him; both male and female.

Alas, ever since Cain slew Abel, our relationship with God has been on the rocks. Throughout the Millennia, we have totally failed to act in accordance with His relatively few requirements. At best, we have ignored Him, but mostly mocked, disparaged, and treated Him with disdain. We have abrogated our responsibility, whether as an individual or nation, have engaged non-stop in the worst evil imaginable, causing Him untold suffering.

Is it any wonder then, why God is estranged from us; why there is unrelenting havoc in our lives; why the world is falling apart; why suffering is prevalent at every level? Terrorism is a daily occurrence — no individual, no nation is immune! Isn’t it time we re-evaluated our behavior and altered it — to repair our relationship with God and gain His many blessings.

But to understand how, we need to know something about God, something about ourselves, something about religion, and something about history.

This book provides that understanding: It covers Scripture and science, God and His attributes, and Man — including his Free Will, Soul, Body and Mind. It addresses Good and Evil, and the nature of each. It reviews six major religions, and asserts at their core, they are virtually the same.

We will learn that God desires very little of us — regardless of our culture, religion, or ethnicity. In simple terms, He wants us to be righteous, do justice, and love compassion. He also longs for a relationship with man, and we will document not only multiple examples of Divine Providence, but how to engage God real-time!

You will find that while God may be ineffable, He is not unreachable!
We assert He wants to do our Will, and only wishes to shower us with blessings — provided we deserve them. Finally, you will discover that one person — you — can save the world!

Emma and the Dragon Tooth Sword

Emma must disarm an evil pirate’s spells by using his own Dragon Tooth Sword

I move as a prisoner caught, for behind me comes my shadow, and before me goes my thought. The sculpture showed three people. The central figure was a young woman. Using one hand, she guided the bent form of an elderly woman, her other arm wrapped around the shoulders of a young boy. At the base, a plaque read: Between Yesterday and To-morrow, Edith Howland, and then, the poem. Emma’s hands rested on the carved bare foot of the central figure. A chill raced from the soles of her feet to the back of her scalp. Joan dropped to her knees and asked, “What’d you find?” Emma pointed to the small sign and watched as Joan read the words. Of course, Joan did not know the significance of what she read. Emma, her voice muffled by a reverence brought on by the awe of discovery, said, “This is where the sword’s buried. I can feel it.” Emma Dug frantically with her fingers. She tore at the grass and roots, lifted handfuls of wet, dark soil. “I see you’ve located my sword, young lady.” Emma felt George’s hand on her shoulder as her finger grasped the edge of the sword’s hilt. She shook him off as the air wavered, shimmering the marble sculpture. Emma heard Joan cry out, “Oh my God!” The garden faded and shifted. She felt Joan’s arm go around her waist. “Let go of the sword, Emma!” Then she could no longer draw in a breath. The alien roar again vibrated the air and was closer this time. Emma, heart pounding harder than a minute ago, leaped to her feet when she heard what could only have been the beating of wings, large wings, incredibly large wings. No, huge, she thought. Huge wings. “The dragon’s arrived,” she calmly informed Joan, although she could feel her heart in her throat. Joan released Emma, and stood directly in front of her, hands planted on her hips. “Do you know how to get us home?” “No.” Emma shook her head. What did I get us into? How do I get us home? Are we stuck here forever? And where’s here? “Sorry, Joan. I don’t know how. I wish I did. Maybe the pirate will know.” “Who? What darn pirate are you talking about?” “Dragon Sanglant. He’s the pirate.”

Paradox Effect: Time Travel and Purified DNA Merge to Halt the Collapse of Human Existence
  • CIPA EVVY 2nd place science fiction winner
  • Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist in science fiction

In 2554, the World is Coming to its End, unless an impossible mission through 600 years of time travel succeeds.

Maternal instinct knows no boundaries, including the nano-neural-net intravenously installed in Dannia Weston’s mind to repress her identity, allowing her to perform a mission 300 years before her time.

Transported to the year 1954, Dannia becomes a woman with a mid-twentieth century persona, college educated with an aptitude for mechanical invention. Due to her work during the war, she is employed by the U.S. government on a secret project. But what no one knows—including Dannia or those who sent her back to tinker with the mechanical past to reduce future pollution—is what might happen should she become emotionally involved in 1954.

The 2254 science team programmed the nano-net to prevent the possibility of pregnancy, but each person reacts to strong emotional stimuli differently, and using birth control not available in 1954 is out of the question.

When Dannia falls in love with Peter Hersh and becomes pregnant, her hormones erode a small section of the nano-chained network that stabilizes her new identity, triggering a mild memory rebirth…and threatening her mission and the fate of the world.

Beholden: A Marlowe Black Mystery
Rare gold coins, a beautiful woman, and a walk with death

Marlowe Black, a WWII combat veteran, walks the streets of New York with a PI license to serve justice, a .45 automatic and his fists to enforce it, and a steely determination to solve a case…regardless of the consequences. When a stranger’s body mysteriously lands in his office after a long Fourth of July weekend, Black is determined to learn why, regardless of what New York City cops say or do. As bullets fly, he hunts the killer through a maze of government agents, missing Russian gold coins, Nazi SS fugitives, dangerous greed, and women worth fighting for and knowing intimately. But to succeed, Black must right an old mistake, make a heart-wrenching discovery, and wrestle with a decision to adhere to personal principles of honor that will force him to look beyond love and death. Beholden paints a grim picture of American city life, corruption, and death. And with a morally insecure protagonist and an irresistible love interest, this hard-boiled detective novel promises to be darkly satisfying.

It was a time of happiness, individually, and plain good old fun.

This is inspiration. This is hope.

Author Spotlight: An Interview Author Shelly Kauffman

Shelly Kauffman, author of Life Established by Faith Shelly Kauffman is a creative individual from Juniata County, Pennsylvania. Her passion to write began as a little girl and the opportunity to become a published author transpired as a young adult. A sudden twist in her life prompted Shelly to prayerfully consider her next move. As a Christian, her faith in God and patience had established her life to this point and produced victory over her life’s most difficult challenges. Shelly was inspired to share her story with you.

We recently caught up with Shelly to learn about what inspired her book and what the future holds.

OP: What is your most recent book? Tell us a bit about it.

Shelly: The title of my most recent book is A Life Established by Faith and Patience.

My book is a personal memoir of instances where God led me to do something, guided me out of a problematic situation, or bestowed blessings upon me.  This book was written as my testimony to God’s guiding light. The events, circumstances and people in my book lay a foundation to the turmoil and frustrations that I found myself dealing with as part of my everyday life.  Understanding what was happening in my life makes it easier to see and appreciate the peace, miracles and blessings God has bestowed upon me.

OP: Tell us something about yourself. 

Shelly: I am a stay-at-home mom with two very active children. I homeschool my oldest and serve as a full-time mother to my youngest. We have many animals to care for, and we plan to expand our furry family with another dog in the near future.

In addition to becoming reunited with my passion to write, I am also in the process of pursing another life-long desire of building my own business.

OP: What inspired you to write this book?

Shelly: During my morning Bible study and devotional time, immediately after my life took a sudden turn, God told me to give my testimony.  I was inspired to turn my testimony into my first published book.

OP: How did you choose the title?

Shelly: God inspired the title also.  His guidance came after praying for some time about a suitable title that would sufficiently summarize the message God and I wanted to tell, elaborate on my book’s personal contents and intrigue others to want to read it. I was proofing and critiquing my manuscript one evening, and God’s light shown through… my book was about A Life Established by Faith and Patience.

OP: What obstacles did you encounter in getting this book published? How did you overcome them?

Shelly: I did not encounter any obstacles in getting this book published.  I opted not to seek a publisher and put myself through the frustration of trying to be noticed as an unknown author with my first book.  I self-published to streamline what God instructed me to do, and to satisfy a life-long desire to be a published author.

OP: How did you know you wanted to be a writer? How did you get started?

Shelly: I used to dream of becoming a published author; writing is a gift that has been given to me, and one I had an early desire to share.

I got started writing as a child.  I wrote constantly when I was little, but as I grew older my dream and ability to write grew cold when life became filled with responsibilities. One day I was prayerfully considering my next move; conversing with God my desires to write, design and help people.  It was then, during my morning Bible study and devotional time, when God told me to give my testimony.  I was inspired to turn my testimony into my long-awaited, first published book.

OP: Do you have any writing rituals?  

Shelly: No, I do not have any writing rituals.  I write what and when God leads.  Sometimes that is as simple as stopping to write down thoughts and ideas as they come, and then composing a narrative later.  Other times, I am led to set aside time and the narrative just flows.

OP: Did you learn anything from writing and publishing this book? What? 

Shelly: I cannot say that I learned anything by writing the book.  However, as a self-published author, I am continually learning the avenues for exposing my work, and publication methods for my future books.

OP: If you were doing it all over again, what would you do differently?   

Shelly: I would not change anything regarding the choices for my first book. I am learning by trial and error and will implement changes with future books.

OP: What types of books do you like to read? Who are your favorite authors? Why?

Shelly: I very rarely read anything other than my Bible and devotionals, but when I do, I cannot say that have a favorite author.  I enjoy mysteries, but lately found myself geared toward inspirational Christian books.

OP: Are you working on your next book? What can you tell us about it?  

Shelly: I currently have 3 books started for future publication.  They consist of two, adult, nonfiction, books in the category of Christian Life and inspirational memoirs.  These books are titled Living Outside the Box and Mom on the Move.  The third book I have in progress is a children/teen fiction book series beginning with a book titled The Stranger.  I am uncertain which book will be completed first and when, but I can provide some insight into what each one will contain.

Living Outside the Box will be highlighting my observations of the “cookie-cutter” society tends to force people through and my continuous efforts to follow God rather than be shoved through the “cookie-cutter”.

Mom on the Move will be another testament to God’s guidance and life navigating skills.

The Stranger will be a series written for children in which the characters are faced with everyday situations and must choose to follow God.  The characters will lead-by example and demonstrate the importance of choosing God’s way.

OP: What is the best advice you could give other writers about writing or publishing?  

Shelly: The best advice I have to give any author who chooses to publish their own book would be to exercise patience!   Invest the time and reasonable amount of resources and allow God time to work.

OP: Who is the perfect reader for your book? 

Shelly: The perfect readers for my book would include people who are struggling; anyone who needs encouragement, whose life is spiraling out of control, recently had a devastating situation in life to overcome, or anyone who wants an uplifting, spiritual, inspirational story to read. I wrote my book to remind them that God is always there, and provide a ‘lead by example’ walk of faith.

Where can readers learn more about you and your book?  

There are many ways readers can learn more about me and my book.  My website provides a one-stop shop to catch up with me, find links to my social media sites and purchase my book. Please visit my website: and learn more about who I am and what God has planned for my life!
