My love of travel, as well as my curiosity about different peoples and cultures, have made me open to the world and a better person.

Background Information

Starting with my military service, I have had a life-long love affair with travel.  Nothing changes and affects your perspective and life-view more than immersion into the peoples and cultures of the places you visit.  Despite our varying ethnicities, religions, and experiences, we are not all that different.  This is one of the reasons that literature, especially works with universal themes, cross cultural divides and promote our shared humanity and understanding.

I have had a lifetime of experiences and adventures to draw upon in my current endeavors to write fiction.  One of the most satisfying aspects of writing is the freedom to define and bring worlds and characters to life.  Some characters have been composites of the people I have known in my life, and some, totally original creations birthed entirely in my imagination. Few vocations, offer that kind of freedom as an outlet for my creative energies.

People have always been drawn to the story-tellers.  It is how we communicate our history, our shared perceptions, new ideas and ways of thinking, or, just plain entertain one another.  It is at the core of what makes us human.  Even if we can't personally travel the world, have perilous adventures, walk with Kings and Knights, or rocket through outer space, we can do all these, and more, through a book.  Anything one can imagine, can become reality on the page.  That kind of power can be pretty intoxicating and enticing, not to mention, a lot of fun!

D. Allen Wright - The Fiction Factory
Kit Collinsí life is anything but ordinary. An heirloom gold locket is the catalyst for an incredible human story of tragic loss, first love, and criminal obsession... If you like books with young, brave, female heros, Kit Collins gives Katniss Everdeen a run for her money. This is a much more realistic novel, without vampires or zombies, ŗ la Amanda Hocking, or a futuristic dystopian society, as in The Hunger Games. Kit Collinís world, is the very real, present day New York City, and the criminal gangs that often rule their chosen territories, with fear and intimidation. The Ghost Locket, by D. Allen Wright, is a story about a teenage girl, who is an undiscovered art prodigy, living in a poor neighborhood in New York City, with her single mother, parent. Outwardly, she is a normal, teenage girl. Where she differs, is in her passion for art, and her desire to protect her friends and family. She meets Julia Davis, a mother, who has just lost her husband and daughter to a horrific car accident, and is existing day to day, enveloped in her grief, and struggling to find purpose in her life again. Julia, a successful artist in her own right, takes Kit under her wing, in an attempt to help her realize her vast untapped potential as an artist. But Kitís life has become anything but ordinary! She is hiding shocking secrets of her own, including the fact that she has managed to make a deadly enemy of a ruthless young gang leader, who has put a price on the young girlís life. And when Kitís friends and family come under threat, she will stop at nothing to protect them; even kill! The story is further complicated by the cryptic visits of Juliaís daughterís ghost, and a passionate first love for Kit, with a young, New York transplanted, Montana Cowboy, who, in their first meeting, saves her life from two determined assailants. There is plenty of action, drama, the coming-of-age sweetness of first love discovered, and bravery in the face of sinister threats. Can a woman struggling with her own demons, provide guidance to a troubled teenage girl, coming of age in a violent world, and help her protect her friends and family; while trying to keep her own life from spiraling out of control? And can a determined, young, teenage girl, realize her dreams of becoming a successful artist, and overcome the obstacles and threats of a dangerous world?
