About meDerek Gillette is an author who writes with candor and honesty. His willingness to self-disclose is so revealing, it will make you cringe at times. He is a writer without shame, not lacking in boldness for the message he feels called to broadcast through paper and pen.

At the age of 24 he married, overnight becoming a father of two step-sons. His first daughter was born soon after, with two more newborns arriving in the span of three years. His experiences as a husband and father of five lead him to unusual insight and perspective. He, like many of us, wrestles with the tension between his dreams and his daily requirements.

As an author he has been called unconventional and overly conversational.

As a father he has been called all sorts of names.

But above all else, he writes as a person who knows who he is, aside from the labels, and isn't afraid to call it out among the mockers.

His writing will do the same for you, the reader, helping you to discover and bring your own true identity and potential to life.
