When Chad Zunker’s NFL dreams were crushed by an All-American safety early in his college playing days at The University of Texas, he knew nothing of the journey that awaited him. In the years ahead, Chad’s ambition turned to writing. Manuscript after manuscript led to a pile of rejection letters (he stopped counting after 1000), yet there remained a persistent nudging on his heart that told him to continue pressing forward. And then he was introduced to “the camp” deep in the woods of East Austin—a moment that would become a providential intersection in pursuit of his dream to become a published author. (Be sure to check out Chad’s legal thriller, An Equal Justice, that is dedicated to Gospel Con Carne host Alan Graham.)
