William Allen Baltz

Journalist and Writer

United States

I began my writing career with the St. Petersburg Times. Since then I have written numerous human interest and creative nonfiction stories for a variety of publications, ranging from the ordeals of combat veterans to the adventures of a shelter-rescued springer spaniel. Currently I am writing about an amazing cluster of spiritual centers nestled in farm country and a cowboy artist from Tubac, AZ who continues to create beautiful works despite the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Journey along with me!
