We strive to make a difference by connecting writers with their Christian audience.
McGahan Publishing House started in 2019 when Caleb turned a passion into reality. A life-long Christian, he has served in various ministry capacities, including preacher, youth pastor, outreach director, and director of local non-profit organizations.
Caleb began writing at a young age, using an old typewriter bought for him by his father to author any story that came to his mind. A passion for writing grew in college as he studied religion and ministry during undergraduate work, then flourished during graduate studies in education, English, and theology.
McGahan Publishing House enables Caleb to fulfill a fervor for creating books while helping others accomplish their writing goals. He educates high schoolers as an English teacher during the day. At night, he edits and formats books, corresponds with authors, and searches for potential content to publish.
Caleb and his wife, Christine, have a daughter, Pearl, and a son, Charlie.
Partner, Editor in Chief
A journalist for more than 30 years, Duane spent 10 years working for newspapers in the South. In 2000, he began a 15-year stint surfing the World Wide Web with Turner Sports, including 12 years as managing editor.
Duane was born in Tennessee, raised in Mississippi, educated in Alabama, worked in Louisiana and Georgia. (And among other places, he’s been to Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, South Carolina, and Texas; the SEC is covered.)
In 2015, he launched doubleDmedia and Enlighten Marketing to help content creators and businesses forge engaging, lasting relationships with audiences.
Duane believes faith > religion. “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” All love.
Duane and his wife, Mandy, have four children and live on his maternal grandparents’ once-upon-a-time tobacco farmstead. He collects sports and pop culture memorabilia, which his wife finds amusing (and aggravating).
