Dave is a former journalist, disc jockey and cabdriver, and most important, a lifelong writer. Some of his stories take place and have been published in the South, by the Dead Mule School of Southern Literature and the Birmingham Arts Journal. His upcoming novel “Back Beach Blues” was inspired by his beach-bumming days on the Florida Panhandle. However, his work has also found a home up north in the Red Fez, and in London in Close To The Bone and Sledgehammer Lit.

When he’s not writing fiction, Dave blogs about the pandemic and issues like the perils of old age. He works as a freelance editor, helps wrangle social media for the Atlanta Writers Club, and keeps busy with his own platform. BTW, he’d appreciate it if somebody could explain what “platform” means.
