About David

I write dark fantasy, often with a heavy helping of religious symbolism. I hold a BA in English, Creative Writing, and an MBA from Ohio University. I’m also a graduate of the Master of Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program at Seton Hill University (now an MFA program).

I like scary movies. My older brother and I used to watch Fritz the Night Owl’s Double Chiller Theater every Friday night. It was the most amazing thing I’d ever discovered.

I also read a lot as a kid, spending hours on end at the library reading anything dark and sticky, like candy for the brain. Now I’m all grown up, married to a lovely wife, and father to two awesome sons. Between family, writing, and the day job I keep pretty busy. But I still make time for books and the occasional B movie.

My favorite quote of all time:

When forced to work within a strict framework, the imagination is taxed to its utmost… and will produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom, the work is likely to sprawl.

  • T. S. Eliot
