The Sand Dweller throws the curtains back and exposes the devil’s darkest secrets, God’s Perfect Plans and one boy’s 5,000 year journey on the road to redemption

Fresno, CA, July 2016-

In the ancient mountains of the Sinai desert, a child is born. The half-demon son of the devil's greatest general, Malachi grows up with one foot in the human world and one in the darkest pits of Hell itself. Soon, a power struggle will force him to choose. Will he claim the dark heritage promised to him by Lucifer? Or, will he learn firsthand hand, just how far evil will go to destroy mankind?

Caleb Glass is a young priest with a flourishing flock and a successful church. Plagued by strange visions and a tragic past, he’s also beginning to question his faith. When he’s suddenly thrust into an ancient feud, Caleb must decide whether wearing the collar is a part of God's plan, or an excuse to hide from his pain.

Is it possible for a broken priest and a sand dweller to achieve redemption, or are they both doomed by circumstance beyond their control?

We all understand what it feels like to be pulled in different directions. It’s easy to become confused about who and what we should be swearing our allegiance to. Many times, our common sense and our emotions lock horns, with us right in the middle of the battle. The Sand Dweller is a paranormal thriller that not only showcases that battle, but highlights the value of patience, sacrifice and determination. To nail home the theme of perseverance, the author’s main protagonist is an immortal. As an ageless character, Malachi shows us that no matter how old we get, or how long we have to wait, we can always benefit from a lesson in patience.
