McKade Marshall


McKade "Levi" Marshall grew up in the Lone Star state of Texas and spent much of his early years in West Texas country where he enjoyed the blessing of a southern Bible Belt upbringing. He obtained his BBA & MBA from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas with the intention of following in the family footsteps of his good-hearted bank president grandfather. While in college, he was bitten by the acting bug and made his way to Malibu, California after completing his MBA to realize his dream of acting and modeling, one opportunity at a time. It's been a great ride thus far. In 2011, McKade was featured on the cover of Malibu Times Magazine as one of Malibu's most eligible bachelors. He considers himself a California cowboy in the truest sense of the word as he makes California his home. He is, however, a die-hard Texan for life. More than anything, McKade sees his identity as a Christ follower as his highest calling, and he continues to pursue his multifaceted dream of living life to the full as Scripture declares in John 10:10. The word of God is the foundation upon which McKade lives his life. McKade completed his first published work, "Tasting the Goodness of God", in July 2014, which is now available online and in select stores.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a lifelong learner and creative artist. When I am not writing I like to do things that stimulate creative thought and relax my mind. My favorite way to spend time is walking on the beach and taking in all the different moments around me. When I can relax and let my mind rest, I am truly free to express myself as a writer and as an artist. I am always looking for the next project to work on, so rarely am I not writing or journaling. As for how I use spare time, I enjoy visiting family, drinking coffee with friends, and going on short hikes.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I'm not sure what the first story I ever wrote was, but I knew how to draw a Brachiosaurus (dinosaur long-neck) after watching "The Land Before Time" when I was four years old. My greatest obsession as a child was drawing and playing with dinosaurs.
