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 it 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 Books Below.
Dave was previously attending Valley College, San Bernardino , Ca. where he had been studying the arts and computer graphics. He had to take time out on writing. He is now working on his next book.
As all writer's know, you have to be knowledgeable of the world around and the everchanging trends, especially the literary industry for the independent author. Writer's have to attend book fairs, meet other authors, agents, and stay informed through the internet's valuable resources or join a writing club. Knowledge is power.
A good writer reads a lot. Read, read, read. Write, write, write.
