D.I. Telbat

Biography

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.
