Savaged New Christian Series


I Must say that I have watched the 5 episodes and I have found that is it a refreshing story that is well written and is clean for our youth of today to view.  It has a great message and about the importance of organ donation and I love how the lead actress talks to her Jesus.  That is the way I see my self talking to my Jesus on a daily basis.  


Please take a few moments to review the interview and view the series.  It will warm your heart.






How did the Salvaged web series come about?
I was working with Director, Paul Morrell on a movie adaptation of my third novel, Collision. We had just completed the screenplay and were about to move in to the next phase, when I told him about an idea I had for Salvaged. I’d always believed that it would make a great teen drama series – either on television, straight to DVD or web streaming. He loved the idea and was interested in doing it. Within days, a friend that I mentioned it to, offered to pay to have a pilot/proof of concept reel developed. Less than a month later, I was in LA holding a casting call. Two weeks later, a cast and crew of 25 were in a rented house, shooting for five days. We decided to take the pilot episode and also release it as a web series so that we could introduce people to the story, characters and our quality of work. We believe that this can only help both the Salvaged and Collision projects.

What is the big goal?
The big picture goal is that a network or distributor would pick up the series. I’ve already written the scripts for eight 45 minute episodes or what could easily be turned in to a mini-series.

Who are you hoping to reach with this series?
Salvaged, the web series is based on my first novel by the same name. It is a young adult Christian fiction novel that was able to transcend the lines of Christian fiction and also move into the secular market. Salvaged was first picked up in the mainstream young adult fiction blogging world and the reviews and ratings landed me on the Reader’s Choice Awards finalist list for Debut Author of 2010. I am hoping that Salvaged will continue to reach out into various audiences and present them with a powerful story that has the ability to impact lives – no matter the way in which they receive it (book, web series, tv show, etc).

When does the series come out?
There are six episodes. The first was released on September 25th. The remaining episodes will release every Wednesday at 8 am (CST) through October 30th. 

Where can viewers find the episodes?
Salvaged has it’s own YouTube channel at: The episodes will stay on the Salvaged YouTube channel for viewers to watch far into the future.

God appointment moment


God is so good. And he shows up in the craziest places. 

I am a volunteer for Kids Connection.  This is a bible based mission that touches the lives of children in the public school district. Once a week we come together for games, crafts, dancing, music and a big lesson on the goodness of Jesus. 

This past week was one out of sorts because the children I normally have were there but I had three extra that had never been in my group.  We had gone outside and played the games to wind the kids down, we fed them snacks and gave them water to drink.  Simple little things that make a huge impact in the life of kindergardener or first grader.

 There was a lesson taught about how God made each of them. In a child’s eye, this is good stuff.

 They were hungry for the lesson and very intuitive. They listened with big opened ears about how God, our Creator, knows how many hairs are on their heads and that each child has a fingerprint that makes them unique.  After the lesson they kids come to my table were I have markers and paper for coloring.  I have play dough and candy.  We all sit at this table and come together to talk about the lesson they just learned.

There were two little boys, with the biggest brown eyes wearing cowboy boots.  They were twins.  God opened a window of opportunity.  These little boys went on to tell me that there mother had left them alone one night.  Someone broke into their house with a gun and the little guys were upstairs hiding under the bathroom sink, wishing there cousins were with them.  They were silent and the intruders left.  The police came and one little guy said he hid for ten hours.  Now, I don’t know if the story was true or not but at that moment, I was able to tell these kids about a Jesus and a God who loves them with all his heart that he took the time to stay with those boys and keep them safe.  They looked back at me with with open eyes and hearts and they just knew that God saved them that night.  I am sure of it.  It was a divine moment.  


One I will remember for a long time


God is so good.
