I am as much of a storyteller as I am a student of literature, cinema, theology, and history. As a freelance writer, professor, and novelist, I am committed to seeking the truth, pursuing excellence, and helping young writers develop their craft, find their purpose, and encounter the beauty and grace of their Creator. 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.
