Writer Bio

David is a gay black Buddhist who pretends to be a writing jackalopian bookworm online. He is originally from the urban jungles of Baltimore, but has since migrated to the technical wilds of Silicon Valley, CA.

Writing Style

David loves to get into the heads of his characters, especially since they seem to be such very hard things to crack. Like a squirrel, he worries at the tough outer shell to get at the sweet, tender meat inside. This makes him sound like a serial killer (or a squirrel), but he is not. He is just a writer.

Writing Goal

By the beginning of August, I'd very much like to have at least five short stories completed for editing and revision, with an eye towards eventual publication online or in a legit anthology/periodical/zine.

Fundraising Goal

Ideally, I'd make 1 cent per word (or $500.00 raised for Clarion).

writing goal:
50000 words written
