Many years ago, D.K. Wall was recounting an event to a group of co-workers who were all laughing riotously. One of the audience spoke up and said, "I wish I had been there."
"But you were," D.K. protested.
"Yes, but you remember it better than I do," she replied.
And that is the essence of a story teller. Take a nugget of truth. Highlight the interesting. Surround it with imagery. Weave a tale. Engage the audience.
After a nearly three-decade-long career in finance, D. K. Wall returned to his roots. He lives on the top of a mountain on the eastern edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park near Maggie Valley, North Carolina. When not writing, he can be found hiking the mountain trails with camera in hand capturing the beauty of the land.
He is married and shares his home with a family of rescued Siberian Huskies known as The Thundering Herd. With their never-ending help, he is hard at work on his second novel, Lost and Found, which is scheduled for release in the summer of 2019.
