After 30 years traveling in business, Mr. Brown returned to college and completed his degree with Magna Cum Laude honors. After seminary, he became a teacher, coach, and preacher in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida until he retired in 2014. Since then, beyond his ongoing devotional and bible study writings (, he tackled the challenge of authoring Southern Fiction stories. When not writing or leading a bible study, Mr. Brown and his wife of over 40 years enjoy traveling and spoiling their five grandchildren spread between Georgia and Kentucky.




Sanctuary introduces newly retired publishing executive, Theo Phillips, and his wife, Liddy, to the time-lost South Georgia town of Shiloh. They leave the shadows of Atlanta and move into a quaint home of notoriety. While making new friends, they discover twenty-first-century challenges threaten the town’s laid-back lifestyle. Theo's interest in a memorial launches him into investigating tragic events that have left Shiloh unsettled. Theo and Liddy’s retirement dreams take a turn that could unravel both them and the idyllic life they and many others look for in Shiloh.
