Tell Us About Yourself

In the wake of the launch of Quintessence, a number of bloggers have been kind enough to interview me.  If you wonder what they asked and how I replied, read on!  As I mentioned earlier, Fantasy Literature asked me some insightful questions about some of the themes in the book.  My Bookish Ways focused on literary inspirations and book recommendations.  Fantastical Imaginations wondered what actors I would choose to play the main characters in the unlikely event that Quintessence was made into a movie, and Rebecca Roland asked questions about my experience of being a writer.  Finally, John Scalzi (author of the wildly successful Old Man’s War series, which is being made into a movie) asked me what he asks every author: what was the Big Idea that prompted you to write this book?


David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
