Aside from his weird tendencies such as collecting vintage manual typewriters, David is a scribbler of thrilling tales of fantasy adventure for young and adult readers.

With a natural tendency toward laziness, he considered selling his soul for instant publishing glory, but given the Great Recession's effect on the demonic markets, he opted instead for long hours pounding away at the keyboard. Which leaves his soul available for buying world-domination once the markets pick up. So watch it. He might stop being lazy. It could happen.

One might ask, why does David write fast-paced tales of fantastic adventure. Short answer: He doesn't like slow and he's big a fan of things fantastic! If you count looking at colorful images as reading (and who doesn't?), he's been reading comics all his life. So that's where it began. Early on, he got caught up in the idea of space travel, but the charming bunk that is The Sirius Mystery transitioned him from astronomy to ancient history and the fine art of making up stuff.

The mesmerizing cover of the 4th Edition Stormbringer RPG finished him off. To fantasy adventure he went, like a squire charging into his first quest. He steeped himself in the works of Michael Moorcock, Robert E. Howard, and David Gemmell, and he delved into the Star Frontiers, Stormbringer, Champions, and Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying games.

David lives in Alabama, along with his delightful wife, Pepper Thorn, and three lovely cats. He studied history, literature, and religion at the University of Alabama. He practices the Yang Taijiquan long form and enjoys reading about nutrition. He loves Redskins and Crimson Tide football.
