I am as much of a storyteller as I am a husband, a father, and a student of theology, literature, cinema, and history. As a freelance writer, professor, and novelist, I am committed to seeking and speaking the truth, pursuing excellence in all that I do, and helping young writers develop their craft, tell better stories, and live better lives. As someone who's spent far too much time in the deserts of despair, frustration, and terrible first drafts, I understand just how important inspiration, encouragement, and persistence really are. Sometimes, we all just need a life compass or creative push help us find our way or get us back on track. That is what I hope to share.
