David H Fears

I am a writer and historian who came to the former rather late in life, writing four volumes "Mark Twain Day By Day." Just before I got into the Twain writing, I began writing short stories, a few of which morphed into a hardboiled private eye detective novel (Mike Angel Series). After studying hundreds of such books, and admiring Raymond Chandler and Mickey Spillane's work, I wrote four of them--and oh! how much fun they were to write. There are now NINETEEN in the series and I'm taking a break for an undetermined time. #19, "Dark Vigil" may be the last. We shall see.

 

I also studied composition theory, and read thousands of short stories. I taught writing at two for-profit colleges. Like Mark Twain, I love cats, am father to 3 girls, and am a Portland Or, native who has lived in various parts of the country. During a break after # 11 in the Mike Angel Mystery series, I wrote and published "Self-Edit Your Novel," a 124 page in-depth look at self-editing. I'm now taking a break from all things Mark Twain and all things Mike Angel.

The Seduction of Quentin

Quentin tells the story in his vernacular of growing up in Crawford County Arkansas and of his Pa's desperate gamble to grow strawberries on a failed piece of land; of Reba Truitt, a sultry and aggressive neighbor woman with designs on his virginity; and lastly of a tornado, which changes his world and changes him forever.
