David Derrico

Miami, Florida, United States


Home page:

David Derrico was born just north of Miami, Florida, and developed his appreciation for complex moral issues while receiving a
degree in philosophy from the University of Florida in Gainesville. He wrote his first novel, Right Ascension, before attending law
school at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). Right Ascension was first published by Bookbooters
Press in 2000, and garnered its inaugural eBook of the Year Award.

Derrico wrote his second novel, Declination, during law school, while he was probably supposed to be studying. Nonetheless, he
graduated, passed the California Bar Exam, and worked as an attorney at a large, international law firm in Los Angeles for several
years. While practicing law (all that practice actually made him pretty good at it), he managed to write some short stories and start
work on his third novel, The Twiller.

Recently, Derrico retired from his “day job” as a big-firm attorney and moved back to South Florida, where he is working on that
next novel. The Twiller follows the (mis)adventures of an unlikely hero and his unique companion on a comic romp around the
galaxy. Derrico maintains a website with reviews, excerpts, current news, and purchasing information for all of his novels and other
works at

Derrico's novels are available in both paperback and e-book formats directly from the author's website (paperback and multiple e-
book formats), (paperback and Kindle), Barnes & (Nook), Smashwords (multiple formats), and the Apple
iBook Store (iPad).
