I am the author of nine fantasy novels, the newest of which is called THE SORCERERS’ PLAGUE.  It will be released in December 2007.  So in a sense, much of this blog will be about writing and what I do with my days.  The artistic process is different for everyone, of course, and I look forward to sharing discussions of process with others in the arts, be they writers, visual artists, or performance artists.

For those of you who are interested, I went to Brown University as an undergraduate and received a Ph.D. in history from Stanford.  I’m married and have two daughters.  My family and I live in Tennessee on the Cumberland Plateau.

    Hey David.
    just a quick note from your most-humbled room proctor at the SCWW conference.
    i really like the blog. i have to admit this was my first time actually navigating to and reading anyone’s blog. until i opened yours, i didn’t even know what the definition of a blog was. again you taught me a new, exciting, and motivating segment of my foray into professional writing.

    thank you for teaching me and the entire group of attendees more than we could begin to digest.

    here’s wishing you safe travels.

    Anyway, i just wanted to say hello and maybe share some of what i have written with others like yourself.

    David, My boyfriend and I came across your work at Shenanigans on the Univ. of the South campus (his alma mater). We were hoping to find a gallery of your photographs that are for sale. If you can steer me in the right direction, please let me know. Thanks

  6. Damn, that sound’s so easy if you think about it.

    I bought your Children of Amarid Books in german, and I really appreciate this story. Sadly I bought a misprint and a few pages missed in one of those books; the part misses, where Baram escaped from Orris.
    I really love this story and those characters, and I’m sad I have read only the German translated version of it.
    These books are really interesting and do have a big symbolism in them.
    I also liked the detail, that always shan-tea was mentioned as a drink :3 What did inspire you for letting everyone drink shan-tea?

      Hi, Anna. Thank you for the comment, and my apologies for the misprint. I wonder if all copies of the book had that problem. Can you email me and tell me specifically what pages were missing (since I don’t read German, I won’t be able to figure it out on my own)? As for the Shan Tea, I made up the herb “shan” and it plays a key role in the first scene of the first book, where the boy and his father are picking shan when they encounter the “mage”. I used the tea as a way of reminding readers of that opening to maintain the menace of the threat to Tobyn-Ser. I don’t know if it worked, but that was the idea.

      Again, thank you for writing to me.
