About

I'm a writer, artist, and pastor who loves science fiction and owns an antique shop.

 

Here's a longer, more official-sounding version, suitable for copying and pasting;

B. A. Shields is the author of the  Pandemic Dawn Series  of science fiction novels about a post-apocalyptic world ruled by an uncontrollable virus and a torn government divided by power and moral obligations: He's also the author of the Christian book Heaven & Hell: Destinations in the Old Testament, an examination of old and new testament scriptures about heaven and hell, as well as the book HOFC Minister's Manual, a guide to the ordinances in the Christian church. He is a multimedia artist who takes advantage of all mediums, from paints to digital. He serves as the Senior Pastor at the House of Faith Church and operates an Antique shop, Alabaster Corner Mall, with his wife, Terri. Visit him online at www.BruceShields.us
