About the Author
I was ingrained into the Christian faith as a young child…then seeking my own ways for a season, the prodigal returned to Jesus with a God-given passion to write and speak to Christians and seekers to inspire them to live holy in an unholy world. I earned my degree in Biblical studies from Liberty University.
Wisdom was gained in the trenches of life, and the passion for me to address deep questions of faith beyond surface teachings was produced. Through years of personal study, the original Millions Vanished vision was birthed in 2005.
If you desire an in-depth study tool to discover truths from Genesis through Revelation surrounding the topics of the Raptures and Resurrections, then this book series is for you!

What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Everyone I have ever met or ever will meet is/has going to end up in one of two places. I have had my best childhood friend die in 2001 at the age of 22. He was not living for God and I believe he is in hell. I never told him the salvation message.
I promised that would never be something I will live with again.
Fast-forward to May 16, 2016, a dear friend of mine killed himself. I hadn’t seen him in years, but the last thing I spoke to him about was Jesus. I mourn for him, but I have no blood on my hands.
I write for all of us who are alive and still have time to understand the plan of God for man-kind. We all have the ability to live holy lives while it is still day. My motivation is for obedience unto God and His Great Commission first, and then for my fellow man to repent and live soberly and holy, watching for the blessed hope and the return of God and His Son to come to earth.
The name of the book I published May 22 is Unveiling Raptures and Resurrections. The name evolved from Revealing Rapture Truths. Like most people writing on this subject, I was simply focused on the rapture of the church. I ended up saving that focus for book two, 7 Rapture Views. The rapture of the church is a by-product of the first resurrection. We are majoring on the minor. What I knew I needed to do is to teach the two resurrections, the first resurrection making up the righteous, and the second resurrection making up all of the condemned. There are many raptures, or phases, in both resurrections
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t think so. I write best in the middle of the night when it feels like time is standing still for a few moments. I stay heavily caffeinated when I write. These are typical traits for writers. My unusual quirk is that I feel most focused as a writer when I wear my hat. It’s like Sylvester Stallone in his 1980’s hit, Over The Top. If you haven’t seen it…. What are you waiting for?!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Josh McDowell and Lee Stroble have been incredibly instrumental in showing me how deep research is essential for taking the ground from those standing falsely. The most influential writer of my life time is Finis Jennings Dake. His teachings are so deep and insightful, yet leave no room for the most common mind to be doubtful.
What are you working on now?
Right now I am working on book 3 of the Millions Vanished series. Book 2 will be launched in June. Book 3, The Watcher’s Guide, is my favorite book of the series. I get to teach people what the “3 Wise Men” understood about the times and the seasons and how to go about watching for the King to return. You’ll be amazed at what you didn’t know was possible to know.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I love the creativity I get to unleash by using my own website. It changes a few times a year, and I love using it to explode in the market.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
The best advice I would give a new author is to just begin! Write for 20 minutes a day at minimum. I started writing with no idea how to do so. All I knew was I was supposed to write. If you have this passion, then start doing it and you will be qualified sometime during your journey. Never wait until you are qualified my anyone’s standards, even your own. Just start doing it and you will grow in ways you never thought could be possible!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Your enemies hate you no matter what. Your friends love you no matter what. Remember that one, and you will have 85% fewer worries.
What are you reading now?
Right now I am reading a book by my graphic designer, who is also my formatter, and an all around self-publishing guru. His name is Cyril Opoku, and the book is called, Tongues Demystified.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I’d like to get my feet drenched in speaking engagements. I have never had one, I fear them, and I want to overcome this fear. The content of my books is greater than my fear of public speaking, so I want to engage this next step in my journey.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Dake Annotated Reference Bible by Finis Jennings Dake (1902-1987). No other book comes close in knowledge and understanding of the teaching of God’s Word.
