My Creative Writing professor, Victor Walker, challenged a young, cocky writer, saying,

“Mitchell, you don’t want to write; you want to have written.” His words cut me to the depth of my pride. It took years for me not only to understand his advice but to take it to heart. Ultimately, I had to face the truth. Now, I love the process.

I have been blessed so far to write and share some of those works with an audience through publication. I have published 5 novels, 4 short stories, one one-act play, and numerous Bible studies and essays. I am currently working on a Christian Mystery/Police Procedural series, based in Nashville, TN, featuring Homicide Detective Abby Rhodes. I look forward to sharing them with you as well.
