Books

L.E. McCullough’s first literary publication occurred in 8th-grade.

It was a mid-length poem vividly recounting a typical Day-at-the-Roman Colosseum featuring martyrs, lions, gladiators and so on. It received a glowing notice in the local archdiocesan newsletter … but failed to make the short list for the Pulitzer.

Since then, his writing scope has expanded and diversified to include authoring and editing 52 books published in non-fiction, fiction, drama, instructional, business, technical & audiobook formats …

Covering a wide range of subjects comprising Christmas and holidays, American and world history, science, language arts, religion, folklore, Shakespeare, women’s studies, mythology, current events, music, playwriting, biographies, theatre and cabaret, children’s literature and more.

If you have an idea for a book, he’ll probably be happy to write it for or with you.

OR maybe even publish it with his own imprintsSIlver Spear Publications and/or Hound Dog Publications.
