Daniel Lance Wright

I was born in the fall of 1950 in Lubbock, Texas to Kenneth and Bettye Wright. Our home was a cotton farm near there. My elementary, junior high and high school days, from the mid 50s through the flower-power era of the 60s, were all spent at the same place, Meadow. Meadow was a town of less than 500 conservative farm folks. I became interested in broadcasting and attended a summer-long radio/television course in 1969 in Houston and promptly went to work at a radio station in Lubbock in the fall of that same year, planning on working my way through college. My next 32 years included riding a wave of employment in the broadcast industry. But, my stint in radio was only about a year and a half. In April, 1970 I landed a news writer/reporter job at KLBK TV in Lubbock and over the next two years I solo anchored and co-anchored news sequences, adlibbed weathercasts, hosted half hour interview programs, MC d telethons, became lead staff announcer, and generally believed I would die if that dizzying pace continued, working between 60 and 80 hours a week. In 1973 I went to KFDX TV in Wichita Falls and settled in as the weatherman for 10 years. The final 8 years there were as a television sales and marketing account executive. In 1991 I secured a position as regional advertising sales manager of KWTX TV in Waco and later promoted to Local sales manager over a department of eight advertising account executives. But, as with any mid level management position, it is the most tenuous when top management changes and in the spring of 2001 I was politely asked to find other employment. It was at this point I jumped in and took my writing hobby mainstream. My first published novel was "Six Years' Worth"/Father's Press/2007 and my second novel is "Paradise Flawed/Dream Books LLC/2009. Currently under publishing contracts to be released in spring 2010 are "The Last Radiant Heart"/Virtual Tales and "Where Are You, Anne Bonny?"/Rogue Phoenix Press. Currently I live near Waco, Texas with wife, Rickie. I have two adult children, Angela and Lance, and three grandchildren Chance, Corbin, and Carlee. My hobbies include wood-turning and body building. I professionally do a limited amount of personal fitness training.
