The adult book RUBY HEART – The Legend Begins was written after I had created the manuscript for a Christmas Musical. This is how it happened:
I was walking my dog one morning not long after Dad went home to be with our Lord, and was thinking about him when suddenly I saw in full technicolor
Dad’s story of the Ruby Heart with choirs of angels and more. When it was over, I thanked the Lord for sharing it and told Him how much I enjoyed that. His response?
“Now go write it down!”
By now I knew better than to question Him.
As I understood Dad’s story, Ruby was just a prop used to get his point across to his listeners: You can give your heart to Jesus. As I began outlining the first book, Ruby was still just a prop.
The story’s main character, a small boy becomes a young man in the adult version, with special abilities of his own. He receives the Ruby Heart after the rite of passage into adulthood. As his father and grandmother before him, he immediately sees visions in Ruby’s facets.But where did Ruby come from?
These questions are only partially answered in the first book.
