About the Author

D.G. Mayes is the author of the Write Your First Story series of books. He wrote the books to help beginning writers bring their ideas to life, and help experienced authors to expand their knowledge of fiction-craft. Mayes had an early life filled with shelves full of coverless books and comics; books salvaged by his father who labored as a sanitation worker. Mayes dove deep into the unloved literature that others had abandoned. His passion of story has followed him throughout his life. He has been a production worker, security officer, delivery driver, and farmhand, as well as a chronicler, archivist, video editor, and a consultant in the film and digital media management industry.

Throughout his life his love of story kept returning, it eventually landed him in the business of entertainment. Here he developed his love of story-craft. From the early 90's thru the mid-2000's, he found himself working as a talent developer, trainer, content creator, and performer for several independent professional wrestling troupes throughout the United States. In 2014 D.G. Mayes was inducted into the A.I.W.F (Allied Independent Wrestling Federations) Hall of Fame.

Today D.G. Mayes has a focus on generating helpful resources for the creative minded. He is the author of Your First Look @ Story; it's a brief Introduction to the essential elements and structure required to craft a story. He followed that up with Write Your First Story, Write Your First Love Story, and Write Your First Ghost Story; which includes scene by scene outlining exercises that enable writers to explore their ideas. He's also written Your First Story Writing Guide; helping aspiring writers develop their knowledge of story creation, assisting them with creating deep and relatable characters, crafting vibrant story worlds, and how to give readers meaningful story experiences. His future goals are to develop more of these helpful resources for those who enjoy stories, choose to learn, and love to share.
