What would it be like to grow up on a farm in the Midwest during the 1950's when farmers had just emerged from World War Two and working with horses, to farming with tractors and new farm machinery? How might farm life be reviewed through the eyes of a grown man looking back at his boyhood? How would a grandfather explain life on his childhood farm to his grandchildren? Robert L.

One was the greatest rock band of all time, another was a misunderstood poet and Christian convert, and the latter is called, "America's Pastor." The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham were the three forces of artistic and spiritual expression in Archer's childhood, and the trio of figures in her father's conversion to Christianity and life's work.
Finding Home with The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Billy Graham is Archer's true account of growing up inside the world of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. For fifteen years her family traversed the globe to prepare cities for Billy Graham's large-scale, sweeping evangelistic meetings. This book details the gritty struggles she faced as the new kid in town and the intense anxiety of their transitory life. With humor, insight, and help from two of the greatest musical forces on the planet, Archer explores the universal question, "Where is home?" Through her father's boss, Billy Graham, she finds her way toward the answer to that question.
Becoming a father is one of the most confusing times in a man's life. From pregnancy to birth each stage has it's own challenges and questions.
Bob and Jim have been friends for forty years, but still have plenty to say to each other - usually accompanied by a libation or two. Their topics are many and various, from the state of the world to the state of their health, from the rich and famous to the rich and infamous, and all of it is underscored with the duo's constant wit and friendship. This collections shines a light on an enduring relationship, the ups and downs, and the prospect of oncoming mortality. It is funny and poignant, and entirely told in dialogue. Calum Kerr is the writer of 31, Braking Distance, Lost Property and the other 2014 Flash365 collections
