David Mark Brown

After a classic eighties’ childhood as a rancher’s son in Texas, I attended University of Montana, then spent thirteen years as a campus pastor with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Boise State University and the University of Utah. In 2009, my wife and I made the decision to jettison our lucrative day jobs and raise a family while I pursued full time work as a novelist and writer. Two sons and eight books later, we found ourselves living in Nampa, Idaho and taking our eldest boy to kung fu classes at Empty Hand Combat. The rest, as they say, is history. When I'm not donating my writerly efforts, I'm creating sci-fi and dystopian worlds for all ages to enjoy.
