Publishing Overview

Writing has been a part of Ron’s life since his teen years, but his entry into the publishing arena came along only recently, after considerable prodding and encouragement from other published writers and friends. In addition to producing weekly articles for Gallagher’s Pen, Ron’s work has appeared in multiple publications, as reflected below. His creative writing background also includes scores of curricula written for Bible studies over the years in the course of his active speaking and teaching experience.

Several book projects are underway and occupy a significant place among his priorities for 2017. His current challenges include developing supportive material for a variety of public speaking and teaching engagements, as well.
