I’m a fiction writer and business professor on the faculty of Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.

This website includes course content as a resource for students in my classes, but it’s also meant to be a gift to anyone looking for career (or life) inspiration, hope, or direction.

My novel, Leaving Independence, and short story, On a Dark & Snowy Night, are available as print and e-books on Amazon & Barnes & Noble.

Recent Events

Most recently, I enjoyed being at the Marshall County Library with the great ladies of Lewisburg and Chapel Hill. This is a community club that has been meeting for the past 100 years. Isn’t that incredible? And that blue bonnet has been in Emily’s family even longer!
Other groups I’ve had the privilege of visiting with recently include:
Granny White Book Club in Nashville
Collegeside Church of Christ in Cookeville (this was a whole weekend filled with friends and treasured memories)
Riverchase Country Club in Birmingham
Last fall I met John Grisham (he was the speaker on that one; and me the spectator)
