Book Jacket Biography – October 2017:
Born in New York and raised in California, D. G. Speirs has been a traveler all his life. He graduated top of his class from the Naval Nuclear Power School and served in the U.S. Navy for over a decade. He traveled the world, coaching American Rules Football in Australia, modeling for Issey Miyake in Japan, playing Santa Claus for a stadium full of NFL fans, and making t-shirts for fans of a particular animated television show in Germany (yes, she can still do anything).
He previously owned a marketing firm and was selected to assist other emerging entrepreneurs across the country. He’s been a public speaker, a Chamber of Commerce board member and Rotarian of the Year. He created the first student tracking database for a major naval training facility and was one of the first to deliver singing telegrams in Hollywood almost four decades ago. He’s been a bonded, discrete courier for the film industry, a taxi driver in Japan, and handled writing travel documents for Robert Bork, The Washington Post, and The Russian Embassy. He’s written blogs about Walt Disney World, about life in general, and a daily inspirational that drew wisdom from the intersection of lessons in Eastern philosophy with those taught on a show about candy-colored ponies, pegasi, and unicorns.
D. G’s a retiree, a family man, and a performer of some sort for over nearly five decades – in other words, a pretty average guy. But does he make mistakes? Boy does he ever. D.G. man. D.G. dumb.
He’s a connoisseur of fedoras, bow ties, and black cherry soda, and believes there’s always a better story out there, even if you just have to make it up yourself.
D.G. currently resides in Florida at Storyteller’s Crib with his cats, Houdini and
Melon Cyclone George
And, yes, that’s another story.
