Swenson, Jim L.

— filed under: ,

Comments from the author about writing:  Mine is a faith-based approach without getting into a reader's face.  Most of my writing has been as a newspaper columnist and I've been told I am good at fitting morals into my columns without preaching.  My only book, so far, is about mourning the loss of a wife, trying to move on and getting remarried, from a Christian man's point of view.
