SORT BY Relevancy
Perhaps his Breton, Celtic fathers are the reason for it -- the story telling, I mean. Because it spans three careers as priest, lawyer, and Christian pastor. Then, there’s the other side, of course: the female line, which is a proliferation of the Gaelic Celtic – more story telling interspersed with fiery feminine war cries.
What’s story telling got to do with lawyering? If you’ve never appeared before a judge, told him a story (a true one) about the case in question, and have little penchant for narrative, don’t ever try it! There are few things more mentally painful than the sarcasm of the judiciary. Similarly, don’t ever expect your congregation to listen to you if can’t put together a modern day parable that is faithful to the New Testament variety. You’ll wind up preaching to yourself and getting frightfully bored.
Add to this a balladeer’s gift of writing soul-seeking songs and performing them on stage, and you begin to apprehend him.
And perhaps it’s because this rather strange Scot did not quite fit in those ‘aforementioned’ careers that he finally decided to get serious about narrative and create some stories of his own, from scratch of course. Or maybe it was simply because, true to his counter-cultural, God-smitten, Celtic ancestors, he wanted to tell stories about a faithful Presence in a godless age.

THE POE CONSEQUENCE:
In a section of Los Angeles near Dodger Stadium, two rival gangs rule the streets. For the Alvarado Street Diablos, it's been a year since the murder of one of their closest members at the hands of their sworn enemy, the North Rampart Lobos. A drive-by killing in his honor is planned, but things go wrong and an innocent bystander is the victim. Several hours later the one who pulled the trigger suffers a horrifying death, caused by something never before seen in its uniqueness. Many more such cases follow, all involving only these two gangs among the hundreds throughout the city. And each death occurs at the same time of day. The exact same time of day. What can these two enemies do to survive against an unstoppable power intent on their mutual destruction? How is a gang-hating young boy's attempt to save the life of a gang member tied into preventing a loved one's soul from eternal damnation? What does a mysterious psychic's prophecy conveyed earlier in New Orleans have to do with all of this? Exploring both the darkness and hope that define our emotions, The Poe Consequence integrates social and ethnic divisions through acts of fate and supernatural horror for the reader to observe and imagine.

She's been on several blog-talk radio shows and the purpose for my interest is to make the public aware of the signs of child sexual abuse. My story deals with these signs, along with those of a perpetrator; and it is written under fiction but reads more like faction. I've had wonderful reviews on my story, and would love to be a part of the show to enlighten all listeners on what to watch for.
She has a website dedicated to this: www.gentlebraveheart.com /and one for the book www.afightforinnocence.com, and a FB page under the title as well.

If God had something to say to you, how would you know and what might He say? You may be surprised to find God's words of love hidden like jewels in everyday life, but also where we need to search and dig. Recognizing these heavenly messages can be compared to finding hidden treasure, one jewel at a time, each with many facets to explore. Where Your Heart Meets God's can help you discover this priceless treasure of the heart. Open the pages and begin an everlasting adventure in hearing and experiencing God. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also" (Matthew 6:21, NIV).
Flora Reigada's assignments as a correspondent for several newspapers including the Florida Today and now for Senior Life, brought her and photographer-husband, Dan, to many interesting people and places.
People include the chef to NASA astronauts and the historian whose passion for history was born in an old, overgrown cemetery.
Flora has also explored forests, nature trails, art shows, vintage theaters, Victorian homes and a castle, the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida.
While on assignment at a ranch, she was nearly trampled by a spooked horse that had just thrown its rider.
Even so, "it has been an adventure and a privilege," Flora said.
In her spare time, Flora is head chef, broom and mop operator extraordinaire in her home.
She and Dan are proud parents and grandparents. The New York natives now live in Central Florida.
