  1. Hi Kim & Mary,
    I noticed Mary’s review of A Western Christmas Carol on Amazon.com and decided to say hello and bring you up to date. In 2005 I married Serenity Borrowman in the Salt Lake Temple, and we are very happy.We moved to Qualicum Beach in 2009, where I am now serving as the branch president. Serenity is stake Young Women’s president, so we are both busy.. Over the past years four of my novels have been published, three by Covenant and one by Cedar Fort. I’ve also written six more Westerns. All seven are now on Amazon’s Kindle site. Attached is a compimentary copy of one of them–another Christmas story. If you like it, please give it a rating on Amazon, and if you have the time a brief review would be great. We recently had a visit from Harv and Wendy Falk of Lethbridge. Do you know them?
    Kindest personal regards.
