I Love Stories

Hi, I'm Brendan Ridenour.

I love making things and that's why Thought Haven exists. I needed a place where I could gather with friends to bring our dreams to life. My favorite kind of dream is a story. I've written a bunch already, but I'm just getting started. Dozens more coming.

As Cynthia mourns the death of her infant son, she prepares to make the ultimate sacrifice in his name. But what if it wouldn't be? What if her death would only change the world, but living with grace could save it?
