Douglas K Mckelvey

The remote descendant of Scottish horse-thieving ancestors, Douglas Kaine McKelvey has already bested the dubious achievements of his predecessors by authoring six published books and penning lyrics for more than 300 songs recorded by a variety of artists including Kenny Rogers, Switchfoot, and Jason Gray. Douglas recently published Every Moment Holy: New Liturgies for Daily Life which is available on and at He is currently writing a fantasy novel set in 19th Century America, pursuing publication of a YA sci-fi novel, and developing a board game. McKelvey was born in New Hampshire and raised in East Texas, but now dwells in the long shadows somewhere south of Nashville with his Norwegianish wife. He has three half-Norwegianish adult daughters and two sons-in-law. Douglas also has a dog. And a beard.
