Hi there. I'm Dave. I'm a writer and normal dude who lives in a small glass house outside Washington, DC. This site focuses on the writing stuff, because, really, who wants to know about the normal dude stuff anyway?

Metatextual interlude: Since you're here, you probably know me. I can't imagine what else you'd be doing here. Hey man, how's it going? Really? Cool.

Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, here's the stuff.
