Born in San Antonio, Texas in 1953, David spent the early part of his life traveling until settling in the Panama Canal Zone in 1970. He graduated from Balboa High School in 1971, publishing his first work, a poem entitled The Machine, in the Isthmian Inklings magazine that same year.

For the next several years, his writing career languished, never forgotten but rarely exercised, as he became a civil servant, married and raised two daughters, returning to the United States in 1977.

He began writing again in earnest upon his return to the US, with a short article appearing in Devachan Magazine in April 1991. He wrote for the Boston Freethinker Newsletter in 1992 and 1993, and served as editor-in-chief of the Memphis Starfleet chapter magazine Engage! during its five-year run in the late 1980ís and early 1990ís. His next success at publication had to wait until the expansion of the internet. Beginning in 1997, his works appeared in numerous webzines, writer sites, and newsletters (see his bibliography).

Throughout his writing career, David had wanted to bring to life the fantasy story called The Thran Chronicles, which began as a series of vivid dreams in the early 1970ís and appeared briefly in manuscript format around 1976. An abortive attempt at publication in 1978 proved so disappointing he put the story away, supposedly forever, and the original manuscript eventually disappeared. Recently, he decided he would again try to bring The Thran Chronicles to light. He rewrote the original story, incorporating new material and heavily revising the original, somewhat stiff style that had caused the rejection of the first manuscript. The result is the current series of books available now through all online booksellers.

With the culmination of The Thran Chronicles in Ultima Thran: Book Six of the Thran Chronicles, David has reached a milestone in his writing career. He currently has five other novel projects in the mill and his stated goal is to attempt to produce two books a year for as long as he is able.
