Author Feature: William A. Wright and Dale Ann Edmiston
William A. Wright (Bill) and Dale Ann Edmiston (Brave Knight Writers) are a husband-and-wife writing team who live in Slippery Rock. Bill gets the ideas, discusses them with Dale, and writes up the draft; Dale then works on the content and line edits. Havasupai is not their only novel; a second (St. Croix) and third (Paper Alley) are completed and are in the editing process; and a short story (“Hitchers”) is awaiting expansion. They have won awards for flash fiction.
Most of Bill’s inspiration comes from life experience. Havasupai was inspired by his own solo excursion into the Havasupai region of the Grand Canyon, and his interaction with Native Americans. Both Bill and Dale are adventurers who have backpacked and motorcycled all over North America and Europe.
