"Dirk Vanden is an exceptionally talented writer who produces literature on a level comparable to that of Genet, Forster, Joyce, White, and even Faulkner." Chico, Amazon.com review


Background Information

 

I was raised as a Mormon in a bucolic little town called Vernal, way up in the Uintah mountains.   Went to college at the Unniversity of Utah, graduated with a BFA in Theatre Arts.  Wrote my first novel "TO THEMSELVES UNKNOWN"  in college, . Spent 15 years trying to publish it through "straight" publishers, finally sold it to Greenleaf Classics in 1969; it was published as "WHO KILLED QUEEN TOM?"  They published 4 more that year: THE LEATHER QUEENS, LEATHER, TWIN ORBS (not my original titles; my editor changed the titles to "Fag-Hots."  Very recently I found one of my books online, in USED CONDITION for $103.00.  Another for $100.    ALL OF ME (CAN YOU TAKE ALL OF ME?) is my story disguised as a murder mystery -- a fictionalized autobiography -- including some ofmy philosophical musings regarding the nature of good and evil, right and wrong, love and hate, etc.. Plus a litle romantical fantasizing at the end.

I live with my dog, Buddy Jr., an Austrailian Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog mix, in Carmichael, CA.
