About Me

[Visit My Official AUTHOR PAGE:  www.davidrstokes.com]

A while back, I retired from my “day job” as a busy pastor serving churches around the country. Most recently, I served for more than 20 years as the senior pastor of a wonderful ministry called Expectation Church in Fairfax, Virginia.

I’m also a writer, with more than 15 books in print, including a Wall Street Journal Bestseller.  And I’ve written a couple of screenplays, as well as a few other “treatments” that are currently making the rounds in Hollywood. One of my screenplays has, in fact, been optioned by award-winning actor Blair Underwood for development into a feature film. I am represented in Hollywood by producer Alexia Melocchi.

Pretty cool stuff.

These days, while focusing my own writing, I’m also helping other would-be writers with their projects.

That’s right–I’m THE BOOK GHOST.

Whether helping leaders in business or politics, or even members of the clergy who want to turn their sermons into books, I work with carefully selected authors and projects.

It’s not really a “business” with me…it’s a passion.

And it’s just me, so I work from the quaint and quiet confines of my study at home, sometimes in my pajamas far later into the morning than should ever be allowed or disclosed.

But I always change before lunch.

I promise.

Okay, MOST of the time.

Actually I work out of two home offices, one in beautiful Northern Virginia, near our grandchildren, and one in the  Orlando. Florida area.

Come to think of it, that one is often near those same grandchildren, as well (cue the Disney music).

Go figure.

If you’re interested in the books I have written, go here.

If you are interested in talking about your project, or even an idea you might have about one, send me an email: david@thebookghost.com.

Tell me all about it and I’ll give you honest feedback and tell you how I might be able to help, and what that would look like.

    Thank you, very thought-provoking and interesting.
    Also, enjoyed your book, “The Shooting Salvationist.”
    That was the first book I ever downloaded on my iPad.
    Thank you so much for all.
