Millerton North Carolina

Millerton, a fictional small town located between Asheville and the Tennessee state line, is the setting for D.K. Wall's novels. Like many of the real communities in the mountains, it traces its roots back through hunting, farming, forestry, and manufacturing. In recent years, though, jobs have dwindled and younger people have migrated to the bigger cities for opportunity. Wall's stories are about the people who have stayed behind and live their ordinary lives, even when extraordinary things happen to them.

NOTE: While these books are based on the same town, they are not a series and can be read in any order. Each novel is a complete standalone.

Many years ago, D.K. Wall regaled a group of co-workers with a colorful story. One lady wiped tears of laughter from her eyes. "I wish I had been there."

"But you were."

"Yes, but you remember it better than I do."

That's the art of story telling. Begin with a nugget of truth. Highlight the interesting. Surround with imagery. Weave fact and fiction to create an engaging tale. Remember it better.

D.K. has lived his entire life in the Carolinas and Tennessee—from the highest elevations of the Great Smoky Mountains near Maggie Valley to the industrial towns of Gastonia and Hickory, the cities of Charlotte and Nashville, and the coastal salt marsh of Murrells Inlet.

Over the years, he’s watched the textile and furniture industries wither and the banking and service industries explode, changing the face of the region. He uses his love of storytelling to share tales about the people and places affected.

Married and living in Asheville, surrounded by his family of rescued Siberian Huskies known as The Thundering Herd, D.K. takes the characters and tales of his lifetime of experience and remembers them better for your entertainment.
