The Key Series
Yeshua (Jesus) placed the Key that unlocks the Chamber of All Knowledge, All Wisdom, and All Power in the Underworld where it was to be held until his return. For over two thousand years, the Key remained hidden. Now the key is missing and the Underworld is in turmoil. The Key must be found to prevent a war that would destroy the earth.
Three people, drawn together supernaturally, gain knowledge of an unusual symbol found in the caverns beneath Utah. Three people with one quest and three different agendas enter the caverns with plans to follow their symbols. The professor believes the symbol will lead him to the Fountain of Youth and he is running out of time. The physician believes the symbol holds the knowledge to cure every disease known to man, and she wants that knowledge. The Native American reverend-turned-shaman was appointed “Protector of the Symbol” by his tribe, and he must protect the symbol at any cost.
Once they are drawn into the paranormal world of the caverns they must face their inner demons associated with their personal belief or non-belief in Yahweh (God). Their strengths and their weaknesses are exposed as they are forced to become dependent on the supernatural power of the mysterious, ever-changing symbol. Without belief in where it gets its power, they will not survive. They learn that the Key of David is not the real missing Key but it is a series of codes that once broken will open all the mysteries hidden in the Bible for Yahweh’s people.
**I had other pastors helping me hold my Key series as close to biblically correct as possible while dealing with the paranormal and supernatural scenes.**

The past inhabitants of Gulfside Island were selfish and distrustful. Because they refused to help an injured woman that washed up on their shore after a bad storm she placed a curse on them. No soul would ever leave the island. At death, they would be chained to the island for eternity. However, because there were three pure hearts that came to her aid, the descendants of those three bloodlines, working together, would be given a chance to find a way to break the curse before it became eternal. The catch… all three families had to work together, and they only had ten generations to figure out what to do and how to do it. Unfortunately, the three families had not gotten along for at least five of the last eight generations.
It is the tenth and last generation. The last members of the three families have come together. One believes in the curse. One does not. The third, a trouble magnet, is gifted and could hear from the spirits if she would only stop running… from her gifts and from her kidnapper.
This is Burt’s mother’s idea of what she thinks should be the approved equipment and rules to be used by all hunters to give the poor deer a sporting chance. Burt, a member of the Catawba Indian Nation (and my son), has different ideas but is willing to apply this to non-native Americans. Approved Equipment: Weapon, Slingshot; Bait, Singing rocks; Ammunition, Pinto Beans. Rules: Five shots per deer. Knock the deer down, you win. Fail to knock the deer down, he wins. Deer falls over laughing, no one wins. In case of starvation from poor hunting skills, cook and eat the ammo.
During a major ice storm, a body is found frozen in a car filled with water, only the car was never submerged in water. They have no idea who the victim is, the tips of his fingers were surgically removed. They have no idea when he was murdered because he was frozen solid. The car was stolen two years earlier and had a more recent but stollen license plate. When the body was thawed out they were able to do an autopsy. They knew what he had to eat right before he drowned in city water and was frozen stiff. That was all they had to go on until they found one fingerprint on the back of the stolen license plate and the results of the postmortem the detective jokingly requested on the victim’s last meal.
