DAVID MARION WILKINSON, a 5th generation native of Arkansas and descendant from some of the state's earliest pioneers, is an award-winning novelist and author who made the transition mid-career to screenwriting, largely due to the many development deals that came his way as the result of his published books. In the last three years, Wilkinson has written, or co-written, over 30 hours of film and cable programming. He co-produced the mini-series TEXAS RISING for the History Channel, and is producing a Civil War mini-series based on an original script by John Sayles--a project which remains in development.
