James Pence

James H. (Jim) Pence is a full-time speaker, singer, chalk artist, writer, and editor, living in North Texas. Jim turned to writing in 1988 as a helpful means of expression after the death of his baby daughter Michelle. Eight years later, Dallas Seminary’s Kindred Spirit published “A Road Not Chosen,” Jim’s narrative account of his and his wife’s experience.

Jim’s biggest book is the collaboration with¬†Terry Caffey on his book,¬†Terror by Night, the true story of the brutal Texas murders that destroyed a family, restored one man’s faith, and shocked a nation.


Jim recently signed with Guideposts to collaborate with Herb and Bobbie Samme on their story of their son’s death as a soldier in Iraq, and the father’s journey to complete his son’s mission in Iraq.
