Marc Schooley

Speaker and Author

Marc Schooley’s first novel, “The Dark Man,” has its origins in a somewhat unlikely place, his Master’s thesis. The Christian philosopher, theologian, Bible teacher, speaker, musician and Christian fiction writer was in the midst of assembling a very thorough examination of the existence and origin of evil when his professor suggested he turn the document into fiction.  And a prolific, seat-of-the-pants writer and no-holds-barred speaker was born.

He has since authored a second paranormal thriller novel, König’s Fire. It too plunges into the lofty ideals of religion, society and history into the dog-eat-dog struggles of relatable men and women. His latest release, "Nightriders," tells the tale of the last years of the Texas Wild West–of oncoming civilization in all its savagery, a last ride by five vigilantes in the name of God, and a final confrontation with an evil unbounded by time or place.

Balancing realism and hope, Marc fluently threads the origin of evil through his books and straight talk about everyday life in his speaking presentations.

Marc's background of education and experience includes philosophy, theology, politics, race and fiction writing. In addition, Marc speaks from years of experience in the business world, both in the public and private sector.
