Author Info

Born in the southwestern United States and raised in Arizona, the author has lived and traveled throughout much of the US and other parts of North America.

As a youth, the author was an avid reader; sometimes reading an entire novel in an evening. He earned good grades in English, but had no love for writing. Though an honor student throughout much of his schooling, he dropped out of high school.

Over the next many years, he spent time in the US military, fought wild-land fires while working for the US Forest Service, drove trucks, worked in construction, worked as a farm hand, and some other jobs as well. Much later in life, the author went back to obtain a college education.

Though he and his family recognized early on that there was something odd about his personality and behaviors, Tourette's-like symptoms, the author was diagnosed with autism (Asperger's) much later in life. This knowledge has helped the author to understand himself better. Further education and training has allowed him to better understand others, as well. David advises parents to get answers concerning their children's behavior sooner than later.

The author currently resides near Puget Sound, south of Seattle, Washington.
