POH Podcasts
Bible Student and Teacher, and Paranormal Saga author EJ Brock

My guest is a student and teacher of the Bible, EJ Brock. She is also a writer who specializes in spiritual insight. Her books that intertwine the “spiritual'” and the “carnal” are categorized as paranormal romances.

Brock's books are not based on facts like her articles, but are fictional and creative. Her latest article in POH: Texas District Pulls Bible and LGBTQ+ Books - Do You Know What’s In The Bible?
