Speaking

A Topic for Everyone

Without a keynote address, most events lack a centerpiece that keeps participants engaged in the event. I offer an entertaining and informative talk appropriate for events ranging from community library talks to large audience faith seminars with break out groups on the following topics:


Lights, Camera, Action!

Did you ever wonder what it’s like, behind the scenes, making a motion picture?  For most of last year, I was engaged in talks and negotiations with Hollywood Producers Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon of Believe Entertainment, the co-writers and co-producers of God’s Not Dead, GND2, Do you Believe and other feature films for the film rights to my first novel, The Diaries of Pontius Pilate. In the end they decided to make “Diaries” one of their next projects and optioned it for development as a motion picture. During that process Chuck and Cary taught me quite a bit about movies, Hollywood and just what it takes to convert a book into a movie. Since I also worked as a background actor for the Nextflicks series “Mind Hunter” I bring both a big picture perspective and a ground level view that makes for a fascinating presentation.


How did you do that? An insider’s look at the novel and writing.

Some people just love to read books. They’re interested in how an author comes up with a story idea and how they get the entire story down on paper. Is the author really in control of their story? It depends upon how you write and explaining that is a gargantuan task. As a multi-published author I can take you through the process of writing, of developing author voice and scene and scenery by providing examples from my own novels and short stories.


America and the Revolution: John Hancock, the forgotten Founder.

Remember the Liberty Tree in Boston during the Revolution? Do you know what happened to it? Did you know Paul Revere was actually captured by the British on the night of his heroic ride? During my work on Trestle Press’ The Declaration of Independence series I ended up as a historical writer investigating and depicting the life of John Hancock. Extensive research and then writing from that Founder’s perspective has given me insights and historic anecdotes any history lover will find intriguing.


The Middle East: Why and what the future holds.

The Middle East always seems to be the scene of violence and intolerance. Is it? If so, is it because of the people, because of their religion, or because of geopolitics? Learn and gain understanding of some of the underlying dynamics from someone with a minor in Middle East Studies who lived there for a year and traveled through out the region.
