We all agree that LOVE is sweet.

It warms our hearts, makes life complete.

Is my dream your dream?  They say nearly everyone secretly longs to write a book, myself included.  Sadly, only an intrepid few ever see that ambition through.  Moreover, the number who don’t merely finish a manuscript, but go on to hold their published...

            Welcome  to  the

     Kingdom  of  Nerdonia!

We are a community of nerds, geeks, academics, and intellectuals (both Christian and otherwise) who love to chat about the deeper things in life.  We also go a bit nutty over fantasy, sci-fi, British telly, the arts and sciences, classical music, reading and writing, Biblical theology, and anything else the rest of the world might consider nerdy.  We are a friendly and inclusive bunch.  However...
