|Welcome to DonnieHall.com
If you search for me on social media, you’ll find I am a “husband, father, veteran, runner, writer, actor, dog
wrangler, problem-solver… and stuff.” The only things left out of that description might be that I am also a
huge baseball fan and suffer from a chronic case of wanderlust.
In my life, in one capacity or other, I have always been a writer. I have also done many other things. I have
lived in Europe, New York City, and I've been to sea. From my first job as a teen-aged sports writer for the
local newspaper to today, my journey has always involved some level of “word-smithing.”
Through the years, I have been the voice you woke up to on the radio. I owned my own business, was a
college writing instructor, freelance newspaper reporter and magazine contributor. I held various
management positions in the maritime and insurance industries and served in two branches of the military. I
have also acted in films and commercials and managed America’s second oldest dinner theater.
Today, I live and write in Nashville, Tennessee and am married to Martha (an amazing actress and singer who,
according to Broadway World, is “the first lady of musical comedy in the south”). Our two grown daughters,
Chelsey and Lauren, are fabulous in their own rights but never seem to come home enough. Esther, Ulysses,
and Alice (our three dogs) let us share a house with them.
Now that you know a little bit about me, feel free to contact me about painting a word picture (or two) for
I look forward to hearing from you!
|Donnie Hall: A Wordsmith
with an Array of Experiences
|All my life, I have been infatuated by
the art of painting with words. I
believe mixing the right words with an
appropriate style and coupling them to
specific content is much like an artist
grouping the perfect hues and texture
to create a masterpiece painting.
Basically, all that’s needed is a subject, a
dash of imagination, and some skill.
