Trudy Lee Wright was born and raised in Clarksville, Tennessee. Attended Bailey Cobb Elementary, but, due to closing, had to transfer to Howell Elementary, on to Greenwood Jr. High to Clarksville High School, and graduated in 1973. Completed some Austin Peay State University courses prior to enlisting in the United States Military in the last class of the Women Army Corps (WACS) of 1976. Served twenty years diligently in various military locations and organizations as a Clerk Typist, Military Police, Vehicle mechanic, Drill Sergeant, and Instructor. Retired honorably as a Sergeant First Class with the last tour of duty at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

However, while performing stringent military duties and field services, I was finally able to accomplish my main goal of a completed college degree majoring and graduating from Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA, in Multidiscipline Studies and Psychology minor. After military service, I applied and worked for the federal government as Supply Technician and Human Resources for twenty years.

I authored my first book: Revelation of the Eagle; Thy Will Be Done (an ethical human-interest story): Generations of Beauty (experiences of slaves from Middle Tennessee during the Civil War); and Robinson Stars featuring the First African American Four-Star General.
