POD CAST - Over Your Dead Body

Over Your Dead Body

Like all relationships, sometimes there are problems that need to be addressed. During one fateful night after returning home from his co-worker’s apartment, Janelle accuses her husband of adultery. There is just one catch: Preston has remained faithful up to this stage of their marriage! Underlying feelings of contempt and disdain quickly form as both Janelle and Preston allow outside influences to get the best of them as their failing marriage continue to spiral downward. A game of cat and mouse ensues as Preston and Janelle become engrossed in battle with their children as the ultimate prize. No one is safe as each character utilizes their entire array of wit, cunning, and deviousness to dispel the other’s reputation. With each passing chapter, Preston becomes more determined to vindicate his image and exact revenge on his wife. With nothing else to lose, everyone becomes expendable in his eyes and consequently, all intended participants become “chess pieces” in what is considered the game of his life.

Illusions Blog Tour


After three years of marriage, Denise Hightower discovers that her husband, Pastor Bryce Hightower, has a secret addiction that not only jeopardizes his marriage, but impairs his ability to effectively preach the gospel.

Yielding to pressure from her mother and her husband, Denise agrees to keep his addiction a secret, although her self-esteem plummets. Her life as the perfect First Lady is falling apart at the seams. Denise suffers in silence until she is confronted with the addiction from a trusted member of the church.

Self-centered and determined to uphold his pastoral image, Bryce is oblivious to his wife's emotional state. He's convinced that he can overcome his "little problem" on his own, so he rejects the spiritual help God sends him. But when his secret is discovered, will he be able to come clean with himself, God, and his congregation before he loses it all?

What If?

It's the oldest trick in the book. The Enemy slithers his way into the mix, tempting people to question God and ask the "what if" questions by planting seeds of doubt and confusion. Denise has always been a confident woman, quite satisfied with her curves. With the burden of carrying her husband's dark secret, her world begins to unravel.

POD CAST - Talk To Me

by Pat Simmons


Noel Richardson is perfect, but degrees, wealth, and good genes don’t define a man. The CEO of a St. Louis non-profit organization, Noel doesn’t respond when women whisper compliments behind his back. It’s only God’s voice Noel hears.

His life has been anything, but easy since surviving a fireworks explosion that kills his best friend and shatters his hearing. That’s in his past. He’s learned to co-exist between two worlds—hearing and Deaf. Noel tolerances ridicule from his friends when he’s slow to interject into their lively sports debate despite mastering lip reading. Living in the Deaf community isn’t any easier. There are constant reminders that Noel is a distinct outsider.

For years, his Sunday morning worship consisted of tele-evangelists. Spiritually, he was dying from the lack of fellowship. What could he do? Very few churches had what he needed.

Then Noel stumbles across an invitation flashing on a portable sign: Thanksgiving service. All are welcome. Deaf ministry provided.

Once inside God’s Grace Church, he’s captivated by Interpreter Mackenzie Norton’s graceful hands.

To Noel, Mackenzie’s exquisite, a steadfast believer, and head strong. With her, Noel can hear the impossible.
