Turns out that my contact page wasn't working. Trying to fix it now. In the mean time, get hold of me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Look in the "About" section of the website to see the brand new feature, the "Michael D. Furches Memorial Library."
Named in honor of my father, this section of the website will regularly feature a book from Michael D. Furches' personal library which I am currently offering for extremely discounted cost. You will receive a book directly from the bookshelf of my bibliophile father, who had extremely refined tastes in books on theology and Christianity.
Grow your knowledge of God, and let my father's legacy live on!
As you may have noticed, I now have an Art Gallery on the page. There currently isn't a lot of art in the gallery, but I will add more on a regular basis.
Over the years, a large portion of the art that I have done has been in the form of comics or comic book art. Since this is a somewhat serious page related to my writing, ministry, and services that I offer, I'm on the fence about posting that kind of art since it isn't particularly professional, and will not appeal to this particular crowd.
Let me know in the comments section what you would think about my posting comic art.
Thanks for checking it out!
I'm no stranger to book reviews or author interviews, just check my hubpages portal. That said, this is a fairly new page, and so you will find my first of many book reviews in the blog section. I am very excited about this one. It is an interview with a tremendous author, and a man I have come to call my friend - Wayne Rossiter.
He's a biologist by trade, and he and his philosopher brother put together an excellent book on how consciousness interacts with the human being. Check it out!
As many of you may know, I underwent brain surgery on 6/20/2017. I had my right temporal lobe removed. I had a tumor about the size of a pea in that part of my brain, and I was experiencing seizures that could not be medically controlled. Immediately after my surgery, I had difficulty with balance, hearing, mood, fatigue, memory, concentration, and probably some other things I can't recall.
For the most part, my balance and hearing has returned. I can concentrate without distractions. Everything else is still sort of out-of-wack.
This has not stopped me from making progress on the publication of my next book Where Did God Go?, an exploration of how our good God relates to pain and suffering.
I am also still able to carry my writing load for CBS, Hubpages and Christian Media Magazine.
Many, many people have contacted me with thoughts and prayers, and I have no doubt that these have assisted in my speedy recovery and continued prosperity. Thank you all.
