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.
A stage play, The Stolen Years of the Handsome Father examines a man who looks back on his life and realizes a life-altering choice he made as a university student has not been worth the life he finds himself living today. It's about a personal dilemma to continue on as he has, believing that regret and loss are simply a part of life, or making a bold change that could end the anguish inside. The play's central theme exposes the emotional harm of holding in a secret that simply steals the years of a person's life, as well as the years of others affected by his youthful decision. This is the first stage play by Gary Nelson, author of the 2013 novel, The Prophetess of Islam.
