David Morris publisher founder bio picture

David Morris


I’m a long-time student of the personal journey of faith in the United States, but professionally I’m a publisher at Lake Drive Books, a literary agent at Hyponymous Consulting and an author. After nearly 30 years of experience, including as a vice president and publisher with HarperCollins, my philosophy is to create focus among authors in a specific space, and apply my experience in any way they need it, regardless of whether it’s publishing or agenting.

My goal is to work with authors who desire to be entrepreneurs for hope. I want to meet authors where they are, and help them find their way to take the next best steps. More on me at davidrmorris.me and follow me on LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.
