Never Ending Spring
About The Author
In 2009, Darrell tucked in the manuscript of his inspirational non-fiction work, Live Life to the Fullest, with some gifts his wife was sending to friends. They read it and suggested he self- publish the book. Surprisingly, the first printing sold out quickly. This inspired Darrell to publish Out of Darkness, a Christian murder mystery, followed by a new rendition of Never Ending Spring. Today Darrell has eight books in print, with his ninth, Tales from My Back Porch, to be released in June 2017.
Darrell’s time continues to be divided between jail and prison ministry and writing.
