Thankful to be asked to speak on writing as a career, and offer tips and insights into crafting compelling stories to seniors at Creekview High School. Excited that several aspiring writers have shared their work with me, and the chance to help them bring their stories to life.


I'm honored and excited to be featured at the Harding University Author Chat and Book Signing, this Friday, March 30, in the Brackett Library Lab. 



Great time speaking with the TCA Middle School Creative Writing Club. These kids love to write!


I was fortunate to be the guest of Dr. Clif Mims on his video podcast "Talking Ed." Dr. Mims is a teacher, researcher, author, speaker and educational consultant specializing in the effective integration of technology with teaching and learning. We discussed THE DRAGON KING, the writing process, and what's next for the Drake family.

Family, Faith and Fear

We all have a voice inside of us saying to not live our lives in fear, and to experience the great adventure God has for us. I had the privilege of spending time with Ketch Smith, discussing the power of family, stepping out in faith, and overcoming fear. We talk about how this past year saw me leave a job I loved at The Branch Church to step out in faith, publish THE DRAGON KING, and face my fears head-on. 
I hope this conversation encourages you to walk boldly in faith. Give it a listen!
