Pastor Steven Birnie


Our Series of Fictional Christian EBooks centre around the Military and Military Personnel as the main characters of the books. These Service Personnel come from all throughout the Army, Navy and Air Force Branches of the Armed Forces and each have many ‘Slang’ expressions which they use in their language toward each other. Each branch have different ‘Slang’ so we’ve simplified the terms a little and incorporated them into our EBooks to give the language more of a genuine feel.
