Originally from Texas, Dave grew up in Los Angeles where he previously worked in the film industry for over twelve years. He learned the importance of the right cast for the right character, believable dialog, and keeping the audience engaged. This knowledge he took and applied it to his writings to come. Currently, Dave lives in the Inland Empire, Ca. with his wife and daughter. He's been a member of the California Writers Club, Inland Empire Branch, since 2005 and participates in reading and speaking events. He also participates in the Poets and Writers yearly Round Table meetings. When he's not writing Dave enjoys novels from his favorite authors, especially thrillers and paranormal detective. He also loves sci-fi/fantasy, ghost stories and, of course, the strange and unusual.
Dave began writing in Spring of 2004 and discovered a new world in story telling. His first book was a collection of twelve short stories based on lucid dreams of the strange and unusual, stories that he had compiled over the past twenty years, which was quite an undertaking of a project. It required research on lucid dreams and on how to put this book together. That's when he discovered Ray Bradbury's short stories collection, "One More For The Road." After that he was hooked and put his first book together titled "Tales of a Lucid Dreamer." The book was later revised and re-released with a new cover design in 2013 and still sells copies to this date. The learning experience of writing and publishing a book has been rewarding and he has since written three more books. See Dave's Book page.
Currently Dave is attending Valley College in San Bernardino , Ca. where he is studying the arts, computer graphics, and even a cinema class. It's been very rewarding and had to take time out on writing, but is in the process of getting his next book in the works. The writing bug has been nudging him. As a writer you have to be knowledgeable of the world around you and the changing trends in the literary industry, especially for the independent author. You have to attend book fairs, meet other authors, and stay informed through the internet's valuable resources or writing clubs. Knowledge is power. A good writer reads a lot. Read, read, read. Write, write, write.
His next book is in the works and scheduled for a release in October of 2019. Title not yet available. He is also looking into book two of "The Girl From Willow Street."
