Chad Mcintyre

Born in Riverside and currently residing on Catalina Island with my beloved wife, Kelly, and our loyal dog, Duke, I am the proud founder of The Literary Compass. My deep-rooted passion for literature inspired me to establish this platform, aiming to guide readers in discovering fresh, talented authors and exploring the richness of the literary world.

My journey started with a Bachelor’s in Business and a four-year stint in sales, an experience that taught me a great deal, yet left me yearning for a pursuit closer to my heart. I decided to chase my passion for literature and intertwine it with a spiritual journey – a pursuit towards a Master’s degree in Theology
