Dave Swan, Author

Dave’s upcoming novel “Back Beach Blues” is a classic Florida tale, blending alligators, mobsters, beaches, and even Elvis with a story of love and redemption. Dave also writes short fiction, including another Florida yarn and a war story that hinges on a #MeToo incident. His latest piece, “Flag Day,” a paranormal story with a lesson, appears in the latest edition of the Birmingham Arts Journal.

Dave is a former radio reporter 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.
