My fiction has appeared in One Story, Tin House, Glimmer Train, The Cincinnati Review, Slice, Opium, Salt Flats Annual, Avery Anthology, Failbetter, Hobart, Storyglossia, Night Train, Juked and other publications. I live in Oceanside, California, with my wife and three children. There are other things, too, but that's all for now.
I write because... not writing doesn't seem like an option.
Hi Andrew. Just a little thank you for spending some time with Blank Checks - I really appreciate the read and your comments. fos.
Thanks for ordering the book, Andrew! I hope you like it. It was great to see you'd posted something here again.

Thanks very much for your comments. :)
Thank you so much for your kind words on "Sundays." It's nice to see you here at Fictionaut...
Hi Andrew, I'm glad you liked my 55er Tall Men, and appreciate your letting me know. Happy Thanksgiving!
Very nice comments for my story "Snow", Andrew. I really appreciate it!
"Andrew" - geesh.
Andrews, as always, thank you for your encouraging words.
Hi Andrew - Thanks so much for your kind words on "She Spread Her Legs" - I'm glad you liked it!
Really appreciate the great comments for "Moro" Andrew. Thanks so much.

Andy - thank you for reading and understanding "Damn Sure Right".
Kumar, Applejack, Robby, Bob...
Man, I did miss some key players in the story. I watch that movie every year at least. Love it. Thanks for checking in. Dude, Left of the Dial and Bottle Rocket...you're good in my book.
Grand salami in SLQ. I tuck my five-year-old son in every night, and I will be thinking of this story every night I do so for a long while.
"I tell my son that his grandfather loved him very much, that he liked tennis, that he was funny and liked to joke, and that we're all very sad he's not here." Outstanding sentence in a magnificent story.
oh and thanks for not pointing out that i sorta just "ruined" the fantasy numbers by my comment. ha ha
hey andy, my pleasure on the comment. i had to say something! unbelievable (well deserved of course)...and yeah reminded me of the opposite of that dude they used to make fun of - John Koncak? - who would often have 14 (min) 0 0 0 6 (personal fouls). that always killed me.
Thanks, Andrew, for the feedback on "The Fair". The fathers in my stories always tend to be sort of like this guy. Either that or total ninnies. Hmm...
In any event, I'm thrilled you liked the piece. Take care, David
Hello Katrina! Yes, I made it. The swim was long but well worth it.
Andy! You're here!
Hey, thanks, David. I appreciate the kind words and the welcome.
I'm still catching up on all of your great work, but your piece in Freight Stories is amazing. Great to have you here.
