I was born and raised in Hawaii--my great great grandmother was pure Hawaiian from Maui.

Background Information

I would have to say when Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. wrote the following on my copy of BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS I was doomed or destined to be a writer:

"To Kirby Wright, who will make it as a writer. I know these things."   

Birth Place
Honolulu, HI USA

Kirby Wright was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He is a graduate of Punahou School in Honolulu and the University of California at San Diego. He received his MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, where he studied under the tutelage of Frances Mayes. Wright has been nominated for two Pushcart Prizes and is a past recipient of the Ann Fields Poetry Prize, the Academy of American Poets Award, the Browning Society Award for Dramatic Monologue, and Arts Council Silicon Valley Fellowships in Poetry and The Novel.
