About David Nees
After receiving a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a Masters of Education, David began his working career as a teacher…until he was seduced by motorcycles. He threw himself into racing and left teaching to open a motorcycle dealership, thereby starting a dual career as motorcycle dealer and racer. After achieving some level of racing success, he realized his future did not lie on the track (not really built for the sport, being six feet, four inches tall). The motorcycle business expanded into the fitness business, and he went on to build a twenty-seven store regional chain.
Since leaving the business world, he has begun writing full-time. David lives in Virginia with his wife. When not writing, he can be found sailing his A Class catamaran on the Chesapeake Bay.
"After the Fall: Jason's Tale" was his first book published. It is a post apocalyptic story that rose to #1 in both PA and dystopian categories. It was followed by a two-part sequel. After completing the sequels, David switched to the thriller genre, writing "Payback" and "The Shaman". Readers enjoy David's characters and want to read more about them, so he will be writing in both genres for some time to come. See David's book list for complete bibliography.
The cover for "The Shaman" was done by www.onegraphica.com.
