Long Bio:

Lorraine Devon Wilke – writer, photographer, actor, singer/songwriter – started early as a creative hyphenate. First, there was music and theater, next came rock & roll, then a leap into film when a feature she co-wrote (To Cross the Rubicon) was produced by a Seattle film company, opening doors in a variety of creative directions.

In the years following, she wrote for and performed on theater stages, developed her photography skills, and accrued a library of well-received feature screenplays. She kept her hand in music throughout—songwriting, recording, performing—leading to the fruition of her longtime goal of recording an original album (Somewhere On the Way), which garnered stellar reviews and can be found at CDBaby and iTunes. She continues with music whenever she can (which, she maintains, is never, ever, enough!); a collection of her recorded material is available at SoundCloud.

Devon Wilke’s current life is spent in Playa del Rey, California, and is shared with her husband, Pete Wilke, an entertainment and securities attorney, and son, engineer and web designer Dillon Wilke. She curates and manages both her fine art photography site and personal blog (Rock+Paper+Music), and is a regular contributor at The Huffington Post. She invites you to access an archive of her essays and journalistic pieces @ Contently.

Her debut novel, After The Sucker Punch, and her short story,She Tumbled Down,” were 2014 publishing successes, with 2015 seeing the launch of her new novel, Hysterical Love. She’s completed her third novel, A Nice White Girl, which is positioned for a 2017 launch. Beyond her commentary and cultural perspective, you can follow her “adventures in publishing” at Rock+Paper+Music.

And to add to the “Renaissance” nature of her on-going career, Devon Wilke is currently “back to the boards” as a singer/actress in a new musical, The Geeze & Me, set for its world premier in San Diego, CA, in March 2017.

Her books are available at Amazon in print and ebook; in print at Barnes & Noble. Please visit her site for links and additional information.

Her print books can also be found at various bookstores, and can be ordered for bookstores, libraries, and retail outlets via ipage.ingramcontent.
