The Ghostwriter's Series is a narrative fabric woven from a thousand questions, but, at its heart, it grew from my effort to get my mind around a song which had been resonating through my thoughts for over 20 years, ever since I heard Joan Osborne's 'One of us' on my car radio. 

"What if God was one of us?"

 "What did that mean? What could it possibly mean?"

Nearly 3 years ago I wrote the opening sentence of what has become an epic tale, purporting to be the autobiography, not of God, but of the Creator of our universe: "In the beginning... I was born."

But, who would tell this tale today, since in the past all the holy books have had 'Ghostwriters'? People who I don't believe woke up one morning choosing to author messages from God. Whether from some internal voice or from a voice that was far greater, I believe they would have felt compelled to write the words they did. They would have had no choice. It would have been 'Involuntary'. Thus was born The Involuntary Ghostwriter.

This is an excerpt from The Involuntary Ghostwriter, the first book in The Ghostwriter series. The full version is now available on Amazon.

Lol I love the end of the chapter. God did not invent sex but he likes it and nothing to do with sins. Humans to blame for it 😂😂😂😂😂😂 
                              It is a very very unique story line with a pinch of humor.

I am waiting for this book for soooo long. Placed a paper back order. 
                              Anyways now back to book. I am taken by surprise. It's written in second POV. TBH I never read a book in SECOND POV.  This should be really interesting. That is one of the good hooks.

I like your premise. And I look forward to your “answers” for age-old questions. Thanks again for participating in the SPOTLIGHT. 😀

I'm not even sure what this is or who it is. I don't even understand what's going on.

I am bit confused here. Is the narrator of this posting it on a blog or something ??? 
                              (Like story within a story?)
