I believe that many of the godly men and women whom I've walked with in the world of music will echo a hearty 'hear, hear' after a read of Creating Monsters. -Dave Buehring, Lionshare President and Men's Pastor, Grace Chapel, Leipers Fork,TN
Creating Monsters gives an insider's perspective on the dangers that await those pursuing a career on a stage and the book encourages a renewed motivation to use our God given talents in the way God intends -Jaci Velasquez, Artist/Actress/Radio Personality
As the director of an organization that develops actors, models, singers and dancers I am constantly searching for creative ways in which to teach aspiring performers that their talent is not their own to possess. Creating Monsters provides me with a wealth of real-world industry antidotes set upon a biblical foundation. I recommend that all artists keep a copy in their personal library. -Adam She, Executive Director, Actors, Models and Talent for Christ(AMTC)

We all have a monster (the flesh) that resides in us thanks to the fall of Adam and Eve. The monster lurks within pretending to be one with our human soul. It hides in the shadows hoping to go unnoticed until the opportune time to launch its attack. Posing as the answer to the perfect life, the monster lures us in to feed it. One's decision 'to feed' or 'not to feed' determines the fate or survival of the monster.
Creating Monsters is written from the perspective of music industry veteran, Keith Stancil. Working with Christian artists who are pursuing careers on a platform presents tension as the platform has the potential to bring fame. The book explores what the Bible has to say about the potential dangers that fame brings including greed, envy, entitlement, financial responsibility, and commitments. Keith shares his experiences in both the mainstream music industry and Christian music industry to illustrate the dangers while offering biblical solutions to help avoid the pitfalls.
The Book is targeted at anyone who has had the desire to become famous and those who have the desire for their children to become famous.
