David I. Telbat is a Christian author who writes in many genres, but especially Christian action-adventure, espionage, and suspense. He wrote his first novel at age 14, and hasn't stopped since!
Telbat's Tablet, David's website/blog (http://ditelbat.com), offers FREE weekly Christian action, adventure, and suspense short stories, or serialized novels. On his site, he also shares weekly his author reflections on different subjects, his writing experiences, and occasional challenges to the Christian Church. You will find a list of publishing credits and awards onsite, as well, which includes print and digital publications, and anthologies.
D.I. Telbat has written a series of four covert, Christian suspense novels in The COIL Series, as well as standalone novels Sea Scribe, God's Colonel, and Jaguar Dusk. He has a free collection of shorts stories for download as well, called COIL Extractions.
Getting into trouble with the law as a young man became a turning point in David's life. The Lord used that experience to draw David into a personal relationship with Him. Re-focusing his life for Christ, David now seeks to honor God with his life and his writing.
Because of his interest in the Persecuted Church and missions, many of D.I. Telbat's stories are about persecuted Christians--their hardships, sacrifices, and rescues. Many of his novels include espionage and sometimes spiritual battles.
David studied writing in college, and worked in the newspaper field, but now he is doing what he loves: writing and ministry. When not busy with ministry, he focuses on writing novels, short stories, blog posts, and curriculum for prison ministries.
Though now living in California, he has kept his home office in the Northwest U.S. where his assistant, Dee, lives and helps with his writing and editing needs.
There is no redemption without sacrifice.

D.I. Telbat is a new author for me and I just love his style. This book Dark Liaison is a book I will cherish and reread. I will read any of D.I.'s other books, because he's that great of an author.
This story is my favorite kind. It talks about the persecuted church and is a suspense/secret agent type of book. I couldn't put this book down and I so look forward to book two in the series.
The characters are highly developed and very likable or unlikable. I didn't know how Dark Liaison was going to end and I love that in a book. I also loved all of the different disguises that Corban used. He is quite an intriguing character.
Corban was once a spy and thought nothing of killing the enemy but now he is a Christian and can't kill anymore. So Corban and a band of other individuals form a group that gets Christians and Missionaries out of harm from religious persecution. They are many times in dangerous situations, but never do any of them kill or harm another human. It is so interesting the many ways they do this.
I really can't say enough for all of the wonderful parts of this book. If you never read any other book this year, you need to read Dark Liaison. It is such a fantastic book, full of excitement and adventure. I highly recommend this book and wish I could give it more than 5 stars.
