In the evening, the back porch of the country home took on an aura of enchantment. As dusk settled and the lamp was lit, children wandered in from their play to sit on the floor or snuggle in their parents' laps. Glasses of iced tea were refilled and someone would settle back, look up at the stars and say, "I remember when..." Thus began one of many tales, often embellished with some distant imagining. Each one taught a lesson of life. Once they were tucked in bed, the children would drift off with visions of the story in their heads.

Tales From My Back Porch
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.
