David C. Heyman, M.D., retired after forty-three years in the medical practice of anesthesiology. Renewing his interest in creative writing, he is now pursuing ideas that he recalls from talking with patients, raising four children, and keeping up with current events.
His first printed book is Money Grows on Trees! Economics for Teens, in which his main motive was to tell his grandchildren how hard their parents had to work to provide for them. Next, he wrote two eBooks—the first two plays of a series called Neighbors—based on families in rural Pennsylvania during the gas-drilling boom. Recently, he wrote Slip of the Tongue, a dark morality play about a small-town radio talk-show host. Coming soon will be a series of iconoclastic, humorous stories called Ether Frolics.
He lives in Montoursville, PA, and enjoys reading and participating in local cultural events. He also plays the piano for challenge and relaxation.
