Writer, photographer, singer/songwriter, and Huffington Post contributor, Lorraine Devon Wilke, 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 avariety 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; most recently, The Theory of Almost Everything was a top finalist in the 2012 Final Draft Big BreakScreenwriting Contest. She kept her hand in music throughout songwriting, recording, performing leading to the fruition of the longtime goal ofrecording an original album (Somewhere On the Way). Accomplished in collaboration with songwriting/producing partner, Rick M.Hirsch, the album garnered stellar reviews andcan be found at CDBaby and iTunes.She continues with music whenever she can (which, she maintains, is never, ever, enough!).
Devon Wilkes current life is split between Playa del Reyand Ferndale, California, and is shared with her husband, Pete Wilke, an entertainment and securities attorney, her son, engineer and web designer, Dillon Wilke, and step-daughter, educational administrator Jennie Wilke Willens and family. She curates andmanages both her fine art photography and personal blog (Rock+Paper+Music), contributes regularly at The Huffington Post and writes a column for theaward-winning newspaper, TheFerndale Enterprise (reprints here).
