Joe Douglas Trent moved away from his family’s West Texas cotton farm, married, went to school and work, reared kids, and found an artistic outlet in song writing. He regaled his wife with brilliant book ideas until she retorted, “Well get off your rear and start writing.” So he did.
Joe joined writers groups, honed his craft and won a couple of awards on the way. He reached the first stage of fulfilling his writing dreams with the acceptance of his first novel, The King of Silk, for publication.
He shares a good life with his sweetheart, kids, and grandchildren on the plains of West Texas, where he can look out his window and see a cotton farm. You can reach him at www.jdtrent.com.
Jack London, Robert Heinlen, Piers Anthony, Dean Koontz, a host of others.
