Mike Parker

WordCrafts Press publisher Mike Parker is a Renaissance Man of sorts. An award-winning writer, actor, director, & playwright, Mike holds a BA degree in Bible and Philosophy. Following a stint as an officer with the US Army Special Forces (Green Berets), a career as a stockbroker during the great bull market of the 1980s, and an entrepreneurial plunge into the uncertain world of television syndication, Mike moved his family from God’s Country (West Texas) to God’s Music Country (Nashville, Tennessee) to help start a community theatre company. Blessed (or cursed) with an insatiable curiosity, he is voracious reader, questioner, ponderer.

As a freelance writer more than 2,000 of his articles, celebrity profiles, CD, book & theater reviews, and poetry have been published by such national periodicals as Campus Life, Today’s Christian Parent, Vibrant life, and CCM. His articles have been featured on the covers of such publications as HomeLife, Christian Single, Stand Firm, Bible Express, Living With Teenagers, 7Ball, and Release magazines. The former managing editor for Grassroots Music Magazine, Mike later created and continues to serve as managing editor for the online entertainment magazine, BuddyHollywood.com.

Mike and his wife Paula founded WordCrafts Press, an independent publisher of fiction and non-fiction in both the Christian and general markets, and then founded WordCrafts Theatrical Press to publish and administer production rights for stage plays.
