Someone is Wondering Why He Don’t Write by David Wright

I’ve been sitting by the fire these winter days finishing up a book due out September 2015, awaiting galleys for Love’s Fortune, and wrapping my head and heart around a new frontier story set in Kentucky in 1773. This was Kentucky at its wildest and wooliest so to speak, a place and setting I feel very much at home. If you’ve read my frontier novels like The Frontiersman’s Daughter, Courting Morrow Little, and The Colonel’s Lady you’ll understand my hankering to return to those woods.

Recently I came across this painting and was swept off my feet. I think the Lord provides us with needed inspiration at just the right times and this was one of them. I’m smiling at the painting’s title of my overmountain man and wanted to share him with you here. I’ve given him a heroic name and can hardly wait to lose myself in the woods and rivers of his story.

And then I hope/pray to share it with you!
