My name is Edwin D Ferretti III and my friends and family call me David. I am a Speculative Christian Fantasy writer, a tinkerer in electronics, trumpet player and an amateur archaeologist—with a passion for ancient Egypt. Born in Chicago, Illinois. In 1969, I graduated from the then Southwest State Teachers College, San Marcos, Texas with a BA in History and a minor in both Geology and Anthropology. I also hold a MA from the US Air Force Academy in Foreign Affairs.
After twenty-eight years of working for the United States Government, I retired and began writing Fantasy books for the YA of Yesteryear. Currently I am finishing my DARKSIDE OF THE MEDALLION trilogy. The second book titled, FIRE IN THE SKY, is complete. The final book, LIVING ENDURINGLY, is my current work in progress. Two novels titled, THE LUCKIEST BOY IN THE UNIVERSE (a spin-off of The Darkside of the Medallion trilogy) and a fantasy titled, THE HORSE OF ARTEMIS, will soon follow.
The places that I mention in my trilogy are places that I have visited, lived or were stationed in: Egypt, Italy, Germany, England, Greece and Central America; the memories, pictures taken are etched deep in my mind and begged to be used in a fantasy book. Spaceship fight scenes were patterned after my experience of flying in the backseat of a Navy, F-4J Phantom II.
I retired from a successful career as a Naval Flight Officer and currently reside in Nebraska, amid hundreds of acres of farmer’s fields with my rescued horses, dogs and cats.
