“I have sought out David as a speaker, workshop leader and panelist for the Independent Writers of Southern California and the Publishers Association of Los Angeles upon several occasions. His understanding of the subject, the trends, and the peripheral issues, combined with a lively and extremely friendly personality, makes him a rare find.”

Gary Young
