David lives with his wife Carrie in Campbell, Texas, his home since 1985. After he graduated from the University of Arizona where he majored in creative writing, he worked at Arizona's largest used bookstore. His association with books continued in Commerce as he ran the Cornerstone Bookstore which was the official book provider for Bill Martin Jr's conferences. It was that association with Bill that gave David the impetus to take his lifelong love of writing and develop "Brush Your Little Pearly Whites" and many other titles to come in the future. A kindergarten teacher for 13 years, and a parent of 4 kids, David has a real love for young kids and a deep concern for them to develop their language skills, as well as a desire for them to have clean teeth!
