Here’s a little about me.

Me, back in my sailing days
Me, back in my sailing days

I was born back East, moved around a lot since I was 10. Ended up in the Army where I spent two years in Thailand. Talk about good duty.

I was a mechanic after the Army and traveled by motorcycle through Mexico, US, Canada and Alaska.

I moved up in the world and became a boat builder, building and sailing my own boats to Mexico, Tahiti, Hawaii, and through the Panama Canal to Florida.

Me now.
Me now.

Reluctantly “swallowing the anchor,” I was a cabinet maker in Colorado and turned to writing. Now, I mop floors and collect trash for money, write for a living, and am an unrequited sailor.

Me, in the mirror.
Me, in the mirror.

  1. Hey David, my favorite authors are John Grisham and Jack Higgins. Are your writings similar to theirs? Are you coming to Ligonier in July for reunion? Has anyone reached out to Gary Smith in Atlanta? Take care.


    1. Hi Tom,
      Thanks for commenting.
      Mapping the Glades is a straight thriller. Passion Street is more hard-boiled mystery. Fear Killer is a psychological thriller. Blood Justice and Blood on the Water are contemporary thrillers with two female vamps and a witch.

      Won’t be able to come to the reunion. Time and Money and just took two weeks off.

      I have this for Gary (now Garrett) Smith. Don’t know if it’s still good.
      Smith, Garrett” .

      Have fun at the reunion. Hi to all.

  2. Hi David,

    I saw on a Sleepy Bookworms thread you are seeking reviews for your books. We have created a free service called Bookvetter that is designed to facilitate reviews and help with promotion. When you have a moment, come and see if it’s something that can help your books find a larger audience.

    If you have any additional questions please contact me. Best of luck with your books.
