Have you ever met someone that you were certain was an angel? I did. During the summer of 1988 while on a road trip, I met an angel who saved me from a precarious situation. My angel did not have a halo or lyre, but she came to my rescue as if she had wings. Long before angels captivated Hollywood, one touched my life. I believe God sent her to help me.
“Saved by Hope” is a short story about my encounter with an angel. It is one of 15 stories in Real Dreams: Thirty Years of Short Stories, a collection of short stories I wrote over the past three decades with themes ranging from adventure, fantasy, mystery, spirituality, mythology, to love and war. They offer a taste of my dynamic writing style and something for almost everyone.
