Short Biography

Born and raised in California, Dave has a love for San Francisco—its blend of history, scenery, and, of course, its cuisine, make it special. After a stint in the Air Force, Dave received his education at Cal Poly, S.L.O. and UC Davis—where he met his wife, Karen. They have two children, Scott and Jen, now grown. Dave and Karen currently live in Iowa.


Dave loves landscaping and Karen loves gardening. They also love traveling. Areas that they have visited and love are New York City, Italy, and France. The scenery is great in all locations, but it is the cuisine that is of special interest to Dave. Have you detected a recurring theme?


Upcoming novels will include other genres, but for Dave's fourth novel, he plans to have a sequel to Five Days of Fear.
