Joe L. Wheeler
Joe Wheeler's writing career started in the fall of 1992 with a collection of heart-tugging stories called Christmas in My Heart, a series that he has become well-known for. Joe Wheeler has been called everything from "Keeper of the Story" to "Father Christmas." He has been a frequent guest on Dr. James Dobson's radio show "Focus on the Family", and today is considered to be one of America's leading story anthologizers, editing collections for nine publishers. Dr. Wheeler has a bachelor's degree in both history and English from Pacific Union College, a master's degree in history, a master's degree in English from California State University, and a Ph.D. in English from Vanderbilt University. Today, Wheeler is senior fellow for cultural studies at the Center for the New West in Denver, Colorado, and professor emeritus of Columbia Union College in Takoma Park, Maryland.
