Kwen D Griffeth

USA Today Best Selling author, winner of Readers' Favorite 2019 Gold Award for Western Fiction and the 2017 Silver Award for Historical Fiction/Western, Kwen knew he wanted to be a writer when he was fourteen years old. The urge first hit him after reading Earnest Hemingway’s masterpiece For Whom The Bell Tolls. The story touched him in a way no other book ever had. The magic in the pages transported a kid from a farm and ranch in Idaho to the mountains of Spain. It took him back in time forty years to witness the Spanish Civil War. Kwen knew he wanted to share that same wonderment with other people.

 John Lennon said, “Life is what happens while you make other plans.” While Kwen lived a full and varied life, his dream of writing was forced to sleep in the back of his mind.

 Finally, in 2012, he wrote a novella named Dear Emma. He self-published through Amazon and asked people to read it. “The best way to see if I can write is to let people check it out,” he said. Like it, they did. Currently, Dear Emma enjoys a 4.8 out of 5 stars rating on Amazon.  

Often asked what genre he writes, Kwen replies he writes stories about people and uses the genre that best fits the story. “I think of the genre, or setting as another character that interacts to help tell the story,” he says.  

His most often received and constant comment is how real his characters seem. Upon the completion of his historical fiction trilogy Sam and Laura books, a reader telephoned Kwen and directed him to write more stories about the couple. When asked why the reader was so adamant about more stories, he replied he “wasn’t ready to tell Sam and Laura good bye yet.”  
Kwen considers that comment one of his highest compliments.

Kwen’s books are available in several formats on Amazon only; e-Book, paperback, and audio. He invites you to check his writings out. Who knows? He might become your next favorite author.
