Mike Parker is a stage and film director, playwright, novelist, screenwriter, actor, and the founder of WordCrafts Press. He joined me from Middle Tennessee where he lives with wife, author Paula K. Parker.

Mike talks about his journey and how he started his publishing company; marrying his high school sweetheart and the secret to marriage; his time as an officer in the famed 5th Special Forces Group; what compels him to want to publish a particular book; some projects near and dear to his heart; how he juggles all his roles; what it means to him to go all in; and the mantra that helps him overcome struggles.

Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of his life: 1st song: “Heart of the Matter” by Don Henley; 2nd song: “Nights in White Satin” by The Moody Blues; 3rd song: “Dancing in the Minefield” by Andrew Peterson.
