Dustin J. Palmer


Dustin J. Palmer(born January 22, 1982) was born, raised, and continues to live in West Texas. From an early age he was writing "stories" on typing paper with pencil and crayons. The outlaws were usually drawn holding money bags with backwards dollar signs on them, the good guys with smoking pistols in their hands and large crooked stars on their chests. At thirteen, using his mother's state of the art word processor, Dustin wrote his first complete short story, depicting himself and his friends surviving a Russian invasion. After that he didn't work much at his writing, even though his highest grades in school and the SATs were in Writing and English. After high school he bounced around from job to job working on sales floors at Sears, back freezers at Walmart, and late nights stocking at a haunted Office Depot, until one day his wife Natasha came across a short story he'd written. With tears in her eyes she said, "I had no idea you could write like this!" and there it was, just the encouragement Dustin had been needing. Two years later, after countless rewrites, edits, plot changes, and late, late, nights(or rather early mornings), Dustin had cranked out his first book.

Today Dustin lives in Lubbock, Tx with his wife and three kids. When not writing he enjoys, fishing, camping, playing pool, gaming, and spending time with his beautiful wife of eight years.

Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Definitely the Kindle. My wife and I won one at a Christmas party one year and I've been hooked ever since.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing seriously a little over three years ago. I was messing around on the computer one day, putting the finishing touches on this short story I'd had rolling around in my head, when my wife asked what I was doing. I told her and she asked if she could read it. After finishing it, with tears in her eyes she looked up and said, "I had no idea you could write like this!" That was the inspiration I'd been needing. A year later I self published my first novel, Chronicles of the Vampire Hunters: The Coalition, the book that would eventually become Creation, Judgment, and Extermination.

Smashwords book reviews by Dustin J. Palmer

  • The Showdown on June 27, 2012

    Short and sweet.
  • Ghostslinger on June 27, 2012

    A nice little western/supernatural story. Could have been a bit longer but other than that not too bad.
  • Star Wars One on June 27, 2012

    Great piece of fan fiction. Honestly I've read books by Lucas approved authors that weren't this good.
