“We take pride in our ability to come alongside our authors and help strategize about where they want their writing to take them in both the near- and long-term. Forging close relationships with our authors, we help them with such critical factors as editorial refinement, branding, audience, and marketing. We are committed to finding the ideal publishing home for each of our authors–a home where their books can reach the broadest possible audience.”

Greg founded Daniel Literary Group in early 2007 after more than ten years in publishing, six of which were at the executive level at Thomas Nelson Publishers where he was Vice President and Associate Publisher for W Publishing Group, a trade book division of Thomas Nelson.

Greg has had the honor of working with such critically acclaimed authors as Sara Miles, Jon Sweeney, Scot McKnight, River Jordan, Matthew Paul Turner, David Dark, and Debbie Blue. Greg has also been involved with publishing books by a number of celebrity personalities, including Bono, George Foreman, and “Black Hawk Down” hero Cpt Jeff Struecker.
 
 With his publishing background, Greg brings a keen editorial eye to the projects he represents. He teaches writing workshops at a handful of conferences each year. Greg also provides consulting services to authors who need help determining their best entryway into publishing in an ever-evolving market.
