I am many things, among them a writer of speculative fiction. I write stories about events that can't possibly happen, in places that are unlikely to exist, and about people who are extraordinary. You could also say I'm a professional liar.
I am also an avid reader, a music junkie, a wannabe folk guitarist, and an all-round nerd.
This blog is essentially a diary of my writing journey. Here, I delve into my experiences as a writer, and as a man. I discuss the books I've read in my review and marginalia essays. I discuss things I've discovered about writing craft and what it means to be an artist. Occasionally I talk about my personal demons, specifically how they affect my writing.
The "D." in my pen-name stands for David, and that is my real name. I am a writer because no real job fulfills me like story-telling does.
Come inside, make yourself home. Help yourself to the fridge, the coffee is always fresh, hot water is on the stove, and I have a variety of teas.
