Writer Biography - Carl D. Lord

Carl Lord's early love of literature began as a child after reading his first Hardy Boys mystery. Those early years of writing creative short stories have evolved into Carl's work appearing in national magazines, regional commercials, and local publications. Having completed two feature length scripts with four more in development, Carl has also written a fictional novel and personal memoir. A former college athlete and full- time single father, Carl's vision for writing inspirational and family oriented material is realized in his screenplay, "A Shot At Faith."

An accomplished musician, Carl has played on numerous albums, film scores, and commercials while performing at the prestigious Kentucky Derby Winner's Party. Sharing the stage with such well-known recording artists as Steve Wairner, Reba McEntire, Louise Mandrel, and John Anderson, Carl has also recorded with Grammy award winner, the late Lynn Peterzell, whose engineering credits include Giant Records, Clint Black, and the country remake of the "Eagles Greatest Hits."
