David has spent the past 35 years in the oil industry, drilling wells offshore and onshore, from Texas, to Asia, to the Middle East. His thirst for storytelling began on a rig in the Saudi desert with the availability of email when he began penning short stories about his experiences and passing them along to friends at home in the states. He has two fiction manuscripts completed and is working on a third. He recently signed with Hartline Literary Agency and agent Terry Burns to represent his first mystery novel titled Orb.
Orb pits former Marine and Iraqi war veteran, Wes Hansen, against an elusive foe. When Billionaire oilman Cole Blackwell hires him to hunt down the man who assaulted his daughter, Wes has a name, Meshach, and one witness, a dog Wes believes the man used as a prop to walk the streets of Lubbock, Texas, at night, unquestioned. Wes is a PI, not a ghost buster, but to put a face to Meshach, find him and put him away he’ll have to be both. Before the week is done, Wes and his team will be lucky to survive meeting the Man from Fire.
Me and Jake is a tale of love and love lost. Anthony is a thinker and his twin brother, Floyd, is practical, but neither ever dreamed of what’s in store for them. Two chance-events in a week is a coincidence; twenty is the work of an unseen hand. His. Anthony said he felt like something was going to happen to change their lives. Little did he know how prophetic the statement would be and how soon it would come to pass. What seems like a series of coincidences are anything but, and what’s more amazing, Anthony’s coon dog, Jake, might not be a dog at all.
