Mike NappaA veteran author and editor, Mike Nappa has over a half million copies of his books in print, including the bestsellers 52 Fun Family Devotions (Augsburg), An Introduction to Family Nights (ChariotVictor), Family Nights: Basic Christian Beliefs (ChariotVictor), the 1995-1996 Student Plan-It Calendar (Group), and Legacy of Joy: A Devotional for Fathers (Promise Press).
When you add his magazine readership, more than 3.5 million readers have already enjoyed the writing of Mike Nappa. In addition, this dynamic writer reaches around 750,000 readers each month by writing regular columns for several magazines. Mike serves as a contributing editor for CBA Frontline magazine, writes monthly columns in ParentLife, Living with Teenagers, and FaithWorks magazines, and is a monthly contributor to CBN Online and the Crosswalk.com Music Channel. Mike also edits a media column for the Reach WC Network newsletter.
Mike, along with his wife and frequent writing partner, Amy, have seen their creative work highlighted in a variety of television, video, radio, and print media as well, including interviews and other coverage in high-profile outlets such as The 700 Club, CBA Online, Mops MOMsense radio show, Publisher’s Weekly, Marriage Partnership, and CBA Marketplace.
“I find boredom to be a very motivating writing tool,” says Mike, laughing. “Some of my best works are a direct result of my never-ending challenge to erase monotony from my life.” His writing includes pieces like the “interview” with animated characters Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber (from the VeggieTales series), and the constant unearthing of wild “behind the scenes” information for his section in CBA Frontline magazine.
Although Mike keeps very busy, he remains focused on his goal: excellence in Christian publishing. To that end, Mike created the independent media organization Nappaland Communications Inc. in 1995. Through Nappaland, Mike and Amy focus on writing three to five books each year, as well as offering press coverage to a wide range of Christian products.
