University Collection: I attended university at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee, Oklahoma; and began writing in January of 2010 (not coincidently the same month I began dating my wife). I sat down one morning with a strange yearning to just begin writing. The result was my first book, Six Feet Deep. I have not stopped writing and I probably never will. During my college career at OBU, I also served as the Student Pastor at South Lindsay Baptist Church in Oklahoma City where Rules of Engagement was inspired by the group of students we had in our Sunday evening Bible study. Thanks to all those who inspired me both through high school, leading up to the beginning of my writing career, and at Oklahoma Baptist University!
Books in this collection: Six Feet Deep, Rebellion, and It’s an Everyday Thing
Master’s Collection: I earned my Master’s of Divinity at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC and my passion for writing is greater than it has ever been. During my time at SEBTS, I served as the Associate Pastor to Youth and Families at Gorman Baptist Church in Durham, NC and as the Lead Pastor of Eastside Baptist Church in Sallisaw, OK. The books that I finished while in Seminary can be found on this page. As in the past, it is all available for free download and can be purchased on the ibookstore, from Amazon.com, and other retailers worldwide.

Pastoral Collection: Upon completing my Master’s Degree, I moved to Oklahoma and started pastoring a church in Chickasha. My focus in writing and my writing style has changed slightly during this period. My heart is broken for the organized church. Moreso for my own generation, which mostly abandoned the church long ago. These books are also available for free download and can be purchased on the ibookstore, from Amazon.com, and other retailers worldwide.
