MA, Professional Writing and Editing
Multi-Published Author


Carl McColman is the author of over a dozen books on a variety of inspirational topics. His titles include The Big Book of Christian Mysticism, 366 Celt: A Year and a Day of Celtic Wisdom and Lore, and The Lion, the Mouse and the Dawn Treader: Spiritual Lessons from C.S. Lewis’ Narnia. His writing also appears on several major websites, including the Huffington Post, Beliefnet, The Daily, and Patheos, as well as his own blog, www.anamchara.com.

From a young age Carl knew that he wanted to write, but never anticipated that this would also lead to a parallel career as a public speaker. Overcoming his natural introversion, today he is a sought after speaker on spirituality and personal growth, having appeared throughout the United States as well as in Europe.

He grew up in Hampton, Virginia, and received a Bachelor of Arts in English from James Madison University and a Master of Arts in Professional Writing and Editing from George Mason University. Carl moved to Atlanta in 1993 and has been teaching classes through Evening at Emory since 2003. He currently lives in Stone Mountain with his wife, stepdaughter, and three pampered cats.
