August HCWL Meeting A Success!

In the beginning…there was an idea. The idea became three. Now, the idea is ten and I couldn’t be happier! Founded in 2018 by C. Derick Miller and Patrick Harrison III, the HCWL has one mission: To bring writers together in fellowship and show support toward the growth of our art! Meetings are held monthly in various locations around Hunt County, TX! Our next meeting is 9.8.18 @5pm at The Texan Theater in Greenville, TX! Find out more here or on our Facebook Page!

Getting Married Soon?

Joining two people in marriage is one of the few joys I have in this life! Performing weddings since 2015, I became an Ordained Minister when same sex marriage was legalized. Due to the public outcry from many of the local J.P.’s, I didn’t think it was fair for two individuals in love not to have the opportunity to go the distance without being looked upon with outright hate! I’ve performed weddings for both traditional and same sex couples in various types of locations and extraordinary circumstances. If you have a marriage license, I will marry you in the State of Texas. I’ve even performed a wedding in a cemetery! My services are free of charge but donations are welcomed. If you’re interested in booking me for your wedding, please Contact Me.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…”

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

Personally, I’ve always preferred the immortal words of the Apostle John, the Apostle Paul, the Apostle George, and the Apostle Ringo when they proclaimed in one voice “All you need is love, all you need is love, all you need is love, love, love is all you need!”

Author Rick Parent!

I just met author Rick Parent at The Wind, The Willows bookstore in downtown Greenville and purchased a copy of his book. I’m a wolf fanatic and can’t wait to read it! He will also be attending tonight’s HC Writers’ League meeting. Finally networking with MY people! We are both writers with a deep love for wolves. We live ten miles from each other and have never met. THAT is why I co-created The League with Patrick Harrison III. I want to change that! I will be reviewing his work in The Greenville Herald Banner in the coming weeks!

The Wind The Willows Bookstore In Greenville, TX!

I was on my way to perform a wedding and suddenly threw on the brakes! I was actually home in time to visit The Wind The Willows Bookstore in my hometown of Greenville, TX so I jumped on the opportunity. The owner, Mary Grace Rodriguez, is a total sweetheart! She knew me as soon as I introduced myself! She’d assisted Leah Warren, the editor of A Taste Of Home’s MBLA London publication, and we’d never met or spoken before! I purchased my own copy of The Catcher In The Rye while I was there because I’ll be damned if a book is going to beat me! I began reading it six months ago and set it down halfway through. I believe I began to read it too late in life. I’m a veteran, father, and grandfather. I couldn’t relate. Well, I refuse to give up! There is also a possibility she’ll be carrying my books in the near future so please go and visit her in the Uptown Forum in downtown Greenville!
