David Haywood Young started writing books for his younger brother and sister when he was about six years old. It turned out that he couldn't make a living that way, though. Not yet, anyway.
So for the first twenty or so years after he started needing to buy his own groceries, he split his time between software development and professional poker. On the software side, he had his own company until late 2012. On the poker side, he might enjoy yours. Now, though? He writes. A lot. And he's extremely happy about it.
From the author: Thanks, and please feel free to drop me a line! Comments, suggestions, criticisms: all good. Also, starting 7/31/2013 I promised to post a free "Weekly Challenge" story on my blog every Wednesday. So far it's been a huge amount of fun. And I don't seem to have left myself any wiggle room...cool! Want to come watch and see what happens?
