Stan Brown, author and retired preacher,
shared his witty memories at the Methodist Men's Club Breakfast on November 16th. Stan described how he conceived and then wrote his latest novel, The Preacher on Pinebranch Mountain. Brown is a successful author who has many articles and publications on his resume'. Born in Chicago, he has been in Arizona 55 years. He and his wife Ruthie have been married 64 years.
Though retired for the past 20 years, Stan Brown refuses to sit in a rocking chair and contemplate heavy thoughts. Instead, he busies himself in research and writing. That led to the content for the Methodist Men’s Club breakfast. This new book details the perplexing and often humorous adventures of a minister who just accepted his first preaching assignment. The book is available through Amazon on Kindle.
