Dave’s upcoming novel “Back Beach Blues” is a classic Florida tale, blending alligators, mobsters, and even Elvis with a story of love and redemption. Dave found inspiration for the book on the Panhandle after he figured out the South is more hospitable to writers (and warmer) than his previous homes in Michigan and Washington DC.
Dave also writes short fiction, including another Florida yarn and a war story that hinges on a #MeToo incident. He’s a former journalist whose stories were broadcast around the world in many languages. Today he’s happy to be read in English and write about fictional characters instead of real people, especially politicians.
In his spare time he blogs about writing and other things in Dave’s Diaries, listens to jazz, and photographs beach sunsets. He’s a member of the Atlanta Writers Club and is busy on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
