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.

Revival

When Joey's dog Max eats poison and dies, Joey searches for enough faith and prayer to ask God to raise Max from the dead, believing God will do that very thing if he believes enough. Joey is an orphan who lives with his grandparents on their farm. His grandfather hasn't spoken in years. The story examines levels of faith, from believing with outward evidence, to no evidence, to the highest level, believing with evidence to the contrary.
