Dave Stukas? Guilty as charged.
I’ve written a lot in my life. For over two decades, as a copywriter in some very impressive ad agencies.
Then I took a decade off.
Then I wrote six comedy-mysteries that were published by Kensington Books:
Someone Killed His Boyfriend (2001)
Going Down for the Count (2002)
Wearing White to the Black Party (2003)
Biceps of Death (2004)
Then I came up with a different comedy-mystery series under the pen name David James: (The Amanda Thorne mysteries):
Three Bedrooms, Two Baths, One Very Dead Corpse (2010)
A No-So Model Home (2012)
And I continue to write. But not mysteries. Science fiction. It’s the one genre where I think I’ve always wanted to be, but somehow never got around to writing. Until now.
In 2015, I finished my first science-fiction book: Someone Has to Save the Earth. It’s a tale of reluctant heroism in multiple dimensions. And it’s published on Amazon ebooks. I’m already hard at work on the sequel, tentatively entitled: Here We Go Again.
Besides cycling, high-altitude hiking and reading books, continuing to breathe is a top priority of mine.
