What inspires you to write?
I am passionate about providing high quality resources at an affordable price within the reach of everyone serious about studying God’s Word.
Tell us about your writing process.
Most of my books (non-fiction) have developed out of my PhD studies and classroom teaching content.
Who are your favorite authors?
I am an avid reader of theology and biblical studies related works. I like D.A. Carson, Charles Ryrie, Moses Silva, Eugene Merrill.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
As previously mentioned, my passion is to provide affordable and high quality resources. To maintain affordability I decided NOT to go with a traditional publisher. I do not regret that decision.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think traditional publishers are going to be the way of the past. I think that KDP and other similar tools are going to cause publishers to re-think what they do, and in some cases force them out of business. Certainly electronic e-books will continue to have a stronger share in the market each year.
What genres do you write?
Non-fiction, biblical studies, religious
