I'm a natural at being a beach bum and writer of fictional truth

Background Information

Some of my earliest memories are of being on the Licking River, running trotlines and bank poles with my dad as the thick early morning fog made us invisible from  shore.  I grew up hunting and fishing the woods and streams of eastern Kentucky and loved every moment of it. Because of my love of the outdoors, I learned about life and about the realness of death and what it is really like to take the life of a living thing and to only do it out of necessity or for food.   

                As a teenager, I read all the hunting and fishing magazines and one day found Louie Lamoure and fell in love with the cowboy life.  Later, I read The Old Man And The Sea and was certain I had found the true words of a God. Few writers have appealed to me with their words as Hemingway.  His writing on fishing, hunting Africa and on war was done with a realness I understood.

                As I grew older, I picked up my pen and managed to write a few short stories that a local fishing magazine published and I was hooked.  Since, I have worked hard to hone my skill as a writer and have been lucky enough to have had several poems and a hand full of short stories published. My first novel, Where Islands Are was published in mid 2011 and I am now working on a second novel.

                I have been married to the same woman since 1976 and we have five children, four sons and one daughter, we also have seven grandchildren with two more on the way. Late in 2011, we left Kentucky and moved to Florida where we now live on the gulf coast.

Additional Information

‎"In a sometimes stagnant literary world, an occasional voice comes along that sweeps you away to another place, another plane of existence. That voice carries you into another world, plants you firmly in the soil, and makes you a part of the scenery. And when you turn that last page, it leaves you with a longing to stay, to continue living in that world... Dewayne is one of these such voices. He ......paints a picture of intrigue, adventure, and leaves the landscape of the bland behind, setting sail for the seascape of wonder. "Where Islands Are" makes you not only feel like you're there, it makes you wish you never had to leave." ---Stephen Cumbey I'm half way through the book and just got it in the mail...can't put it down! I wanna read more! I'm gonna share it with my book club immediately! ---Becki Riley AlfreySee More
