A transplant to the Heart of the Ozark Mountains...God's country.
Living in a land locked state with a love for writing about adventure. From the high seas to the arid plains
It all starts with hearing from God, jotting His ideas on scrap paper, and then some quiet time at the computer.
Working third shift during the week leaves lots of free time at night, especially on weekends. You can't run your power tools, and there's nothing on television. So, you retreat to the basement (ergo...Basement Books) to find something to do that won't wake the household.
You spend time in prayer and listen to the Spirit of God. That's when His "still small voice" tells you to write. You've written articles for ministry, but this is different. This word from God is full of inspiration, hope, and creativity.
Slipping in a small floppy disc (Yes, it was some time ago), the blank monitor screen comes to life as fingers peck at the keys, resulting in a first page. The title, "Wander" fills the mind with visions of high sea adventures, while at the same time reflecting the inner journey our souls and spirits experience in life. Nine months later the result is God's handiwork, not mine. His plans and purposes mixed with my flaws and love for Him.
"The problems of the world cannot be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were"
This is what writing is all about. Changing the world one person at a time through our God given talents. At BC Basement Books and BobCastello.com, I strive as a writer to connect the plans and purposes of God to individuals by way of Christian novels, short stories and blogs. These are Biblical scriptures mixed within fictional stories with which the Holy Spirit has inspired me.

I just got my copy Saturday and it is wonderful reading. It has everything a good book should... adventure, humor, suspense, all the while giving you biblical history you might not otherwise have been aware of. I am enjoying this book so much. DM Katy, TX
I have read your book Nabors Fence and I was enthralled and could hardly put the book down! I felt like I was living in Biblical times and even helped build that fence! Everyone in Noah's family felt like it was my family. Great book! G.C. Eur
I am now reading Wander and at times I'm trying hard to keep up, but I love it and can even relate to Ryan's plight. He is a great character and I am enthralled also with this book! You are a great writer and I can't wait to read your next book! Please keep writing. And God Bless! Can't wait to get to the ending! G.C. Eureka Springs, AR
"Another book that I am unable to put down." MRW, Valley
Studying God's Word a little at a time is like taking small bites of food so you can enjoy the taste.
Keep in mind, you can't judge an entire meal by a spoonful from one item at the table!
