Born and bred in Adelaide, South Australia, D. M. Wright has been conjuring up an eclectic mix of film-style novels and plays for as long as he can remember. When he first decided to put pen to paper and bring his ideations to life, he made it his mission to create a set of works that would leave even the most avid book adversary struggling to put them down. It all began after joining a sailing programme on the Youth Endeavour. From there, his first adventure story started brewing — and the rest is history.
There are no limits to the depth and breadth of his stories, many of which are derived from the plots of some of the greatest literature in history, as well as from his own life experiences. From tales of a shipwreck where it’s every man for himself, to a date that leaves a woman running with $150 million she never asked for, he adds a distinctive Australian voice to a whole host of internationally renowned reads.
When Wright isn’t navigating the pits of his imagination, you’ll often find him working as a support worker for homeless teens and the elderly. When not working, he’s renovating his house or taking sunny rides on his motorcycle through the picturesque Adelaide Hills.
D. M. Wright is a recipient of the inaugural City of Charles Sturt Arts, Music and Dance Award for his contribution to literature, and was awarded third place for his captivating narrative, St. Patrick's Church - Series Two, in the national Young Australian Christian Writer Awards.
