Adducent is a creative company involved in story, book, and intellectual property development–both our own and for clients. We find, develop, write, ghostwrite and publish stories and books with strong and positive messages that are entertaining, enlightening, informative and enjoyable to read. We believe in Cause-Based™ stories–and not just nonfiction; we believe fiction stories work equally well, in some cases even better, to get a point across or to present a compelling message.

We work with clients internationally and some we’ve helped and worked with have appeared on PBS NewsHour, 60 Minutes, CBS-ABC-NBC News, CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. [Not to mention other TV and radio shows nationally and in their local markets.] 

From Dennis Lowery, CEO of Adducent, Inc.

I believe as Ben Franklin did:

“Write things worth reading, or do things worth writing.

Visit www.DMLowery.com for updates on my fiction and nonfiction writing, books and stories.

I’m an author, writer, and developer of creative nonfiction and original fiction stories, articles and essays of travel and observations on life. And I’ve helped clients turn their knowledge, life experiences, and imaginative ideas into compelling and entertaining stories and books (memoirs, nonfiction & fiction). I’ve worked with clients all over North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia, some even while they were in Iraq, Afghanistan, Japan, and South Korea.

With today’s’ communication and collaboration tools, distance and time zone difference does not pose any problem or difficulties. If you find someone who shows the capability to help you, that you have a sense of trust with… then I’ve learned you’ll be better served by working with them than compromising because of proximity and price. And frankly, professionalism weighs in. Professionals respect and value other professionals. My clients are intelligent and successful people. Some I’ve helped and worked with have appeared on PBS NewsHour, 60 Minutes, Fox News and MSNBC.

There are a lot of writers out there but when you factor in overall experience, knowledge, capability and professionalism (responsiveness, work ethic and reliability) … the field of choices narrows dramatically. And that is where a discerning professional finds the right person for their book project. Many have found me (and my company) to be their preferred solution for writing assistance, story and book development, and publishing assistance services.

While writing and publishing have become my primary focus, my business career extends back to late 1982. When I left the military and entered civilian life I worked at different levels of responsibility in management (including small ventures of my own while working for large corporations). Since January 2, 1996, I’ve been self-employed full-time in my own logistics, manufacturing or service businesses. As an operations and management consultant—over an eight-year period—I worked with 374 entrepreneurs and professionals to develop and improve their business and to increase value. My business consulting led to business plan writing, which in turn resulted in writing and publishing my first business book in 2008. In August 2009, along with my own writing projects/books, I began working on select ghostwriting projects and have completed and published many books with clients since then.

What I have done and can do for clients has been received with tremendous interest from:

  • Artists
  • Educators
  • Entertainers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • World-Class Athletes
  • Physicians / Surgeons
  • Business Executives & Professionals
  • Foreign Policy & Defense Industry Professionals
  • Government / Intelligence & Security Agency Professionals
  • Military veterans (from privates to generals and seaman to admirals)

Since 2010 (as of this writing), my company Adducent has provided writing and creative services to dozens of clients and published (under its imprints) over sixty titles. Our clients are diverse: generals and admirals in the US military, senators, Fortune 500 CEOs, Chairmen of multi-billion dollar companies on the New York Stock Exchange, doctors, artists and lawyers, university professors, and CIA agents. Including people, from all walks of life, who have led extraordinary lives and overcome significant challenges.

I’m sure your daughters appreciate the beautiful message you put together for them. I really enjoyed the rawness in your tone throughout this essay. It was heartfelt and captured the message with a polished simplicity that is very rare in writers today. I really appreciated that aspect of your writing.
