Welcome …

The writings and resources on this site are intended to challenge your thinking and encourage you to act in ways that help you grow. The site also serves as a landing spot for potential clients who want to learn more about me and my writing services.

I’ve been a ghostwriter on around two dozen books (leadership, management, technology, and memoirs), and I have a broad writing and editing background that includes newspapers, magazines, and training. I’ve also written books and training under my name.

As follower of Jesus, my faith informs and influences everything I do, and some of my work is directed specifically toward a Christian audience. Grow Like Jesus is clearly a discipleship book. Forging Grit, however, is written primarily for business leaders and Followship: Servant Leaders. Serving Leaders. is corporate training material.

Sign up for my blog, which I write when I have the time and feel the call, and check out the books and other resources.

“If you are a brand new Christian, you have found the right book. If you have walked with Jesus for decades, you have found the right book. Whether you find yourself in the midst of running from God or you feel as close to God as you ever have, this book provides a way forward.” Nick Floyd, Teaching Pastor, Cross Church, Fayetteville, Ark.

“Faith in Christ is a one-time decision that leads to a lifetime of growth.” — Grow Like Jesus
