Sinopsis:

Derek has written three books in his I Will Never Give Up series titled I Will Never Give Up, I Will Never Give Up On God Again and I Will Never Give Up For The Teenager. He is an inspiring motivational speaker, who unleashes his creative and fun-loving personality in a never-ending effort to ignite passion in others and instill the courage to take action. His truism is to make no excuses and become what you want to become. Derek knows firsthand the trials of a hard-knock life. This book is based upon his childhood experience of parental abandonment, his life as a troubled youth and how he found the courage and the power to change the direction of his life. As a foster child for 13 years, Derek faced many extremes of humility, humiliation, loneliness, aggression, emotional distress, anger, violence and overwhelming anxiety. At five years old, his mother and stepfather turned him over to the county social services. Derek has never known his father. County records state his father was in prison for the criminally insane. Derek suffered severe child abuse and was troubled as a foster child. He has been labeled and misdiagnosed in almost every psychological evaluation in existence. Being a child afflicted with numerous emotional and mental disturbances, authorities considered placing him in a psychiatric institution. Some of these behavioral patterns continued to follow Derek as he became a teenager. Becoming a teenager is an important time. Derek has learned some very difficult lessons growing up as a troubled teenager. He reveals how he overcame his adversities and how he triumphed in his personal life. He takes you down his road of lessons that he has learned of hate, anger, mistrust in adults, violent tendencies, rejection, lack of love, child abuse and the memories that have haunted his life. Derek believes he has successfully thrived as a leader in life because of his painful past.

About the Author:

Derek stands 6 foot, 5 inches and has a voice resonating with a singular passion due to a life of coping with adversity and overcoming hardship. Stemming from his childhood experience of parental abandonment, and his troubled youth navigating the pitfalls of the foster care system, his years have been colored by extremes of humility, humiliation, aggression, emotional distress and overwhelming anxiety. At five years old his mother and stepfather turned him over to the county social services, and he has never known his real father. As a foster child, he was disturbed and erratic. Having suffered unthinkable child abuse, he was prone to severe distress and crippling depression. He has been labeled and misdiagnosed in almost every psychological evaluation in existence, by psychiatrists who might better have sympathized with him. And yet, the dire circumstances of his life have never been obstacles to him succeeding at those endeavors which he has aspired to. Being a 6 year old child misdiagnosed with mental retardation and having numerous emotional and language difficulties, foster care authorities considered placing him in a psychiatric institution unless a suitable home was found, with adults able to cope with his special needs. He has defied the artificial limitations imposed upon him by the demeaning diagnoses that parents, adults, doctors, psychologists, speech therapists, and social workers used to mislabel him. The labels and misdiagnosis have never held Derek back from accomplishing what he set his heart and mind to. Derek is the author of his critically acclaimed book I Will Never Give Up , I Will Never Give Up For The Teenager and I Will Never Give Up On God Again , an inspiring motivational speaker, a business man and a dad. He has owned a multi-million dollar corporation, is a music recording artist and an author. He has experienced the life of fear, rejection, wrongly labeled and being unloved. He has turned his situation from a victim to a victor, equipping him with the wisdom and the will to never give up. He unleashes his creative and fun-loving personality in a never-ending effort to ignite passion in others and instill the courage to take action. His maxim is to make no excuses and become what you want to become. Attend one of his events, and not only will you be inspired by the words he speaks, but the music he both writes and performs. It is a concert meant to embolden, enliven, and invigorate. Derek currently resides in Northern California, with his wife of fifteen years and their four amazing children. He loves spending time with his family, and writing, recording, and performing music. He releases pent up energy through boating, wakeboarding and motocross.
