About the Author

Full Bio

Husband of a few decades and proud father of three, David Reed is a writer, a romantic, a weresheepdog, a software engineer, and generally a super-nerd. He is also the award-winning author of “No Tomorrow,” the eponymous story from the collection No Tomorrow: Postcards from the End which won the eLit Gold Medal for Short Fiction in 2014.

David creates stories with a heart full of heroism and head full of crazy dreams. Whether they do the right thing or not, his heroines and heroes do what they do for good reasons. Their dreams may or may not work out as planned, but you can be sure they’re fighting as hard as they can to make things better or make things right.

Besides being a voracious reader of fiction and nonfiction alike, David enjoys riding motorcycles, skydiving, binging videos with the mother of his dragons (who is also his co-author), training in krav maga, teaching firearms, and playing games of all kinds with the family. David has been telling collaborative stories through tabletop role-playing games since Gary Gygax came down from the mountain with the stone tablets of Chainmail (which eventually became Dungeons & Dragons). He’s been in love with video games since beating his dad at the original Pong.

Because he loves new adventures, David’s career can only be described as eclectic. His time in many occupations and a variety of educational experiences colors every aspect of his writing, including a degree in political science and too many semesters paying professors’ salaries as a perpetual grad student. He spent a few years in law enforcement, did a stint as a substitute teacher (without combat pay), endured several years managing fast food restaurants, launched several successful entrepreneurial endeavors, and enjoyed a couple decades writing software for companies like Shell, Microsoft, and Rackspace. One thing he’s consistently maintained all along the way is his love of great stories and the passion to write them for you.
