If you know my work, it's probably because of Left Behind, my New York Times bestselling novel series.

But actually I’ve written more than 190 across several genres (including biographies of several famous people), and my writing has also appeared in magazines like TIME, Reader’s Digest, Parade, and many others.

But it wasn’t always this way. I started where most writers do — unknown and unpublished. I wrote my first several books on a manual typewriter that sat on a board suspended between two chairs. I learned early that there are no shortcuts to publishing success.

When I was a teenager, an author I admired took an hour to advise me, and I vowed that if I ever succeeded, I’d pay forward that kindness.

That’s why I’m here. I believe that with basic skills and proper guidance, you can learn to create prose that entertains, touches hearts, and has the potential to impact lives all over the world. That happened for me, a small town Midwestern kid, so why not you?
