I used to write under the name "David Alexander" but there were several other writers using that name and publishers and agents confused me with them, so I now use the pen name, "David Grace." My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind."

I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled "My Real Name Is Lisa" as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled "The Eyes Of The Blind" as "True Faith." All are available at Smashwords, Amazon, and other ebook sellers.

All of my novels are available in trade paperback editions at Amazon.com for $9.99.

My favorite books that I wrote are "The Concrete Kiss", "Death Never Sleeps", "Death Never Lies", "Death Doesn't Care", "Shooting Crows At Dawn", "A Death In Beverly Hills", "True Faith", "Easy Target", and "Doll's Eyes" more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1.

I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America.

The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp."

I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson.

My most recent novel is "The Wrong Side Of A Gun" set for release on March 1, 2016. My previous book was "Death Doesn't Care."

I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: "The Concrete Kiss"; "True Faith"; "Death Never Sleeps", "Stolen Angel"; "A Death In Beverly Hills", "Doll's Eyes","The Traitor's Mistress", "Daniel" and "Etched In Bone."

I have also written the non-novel related screenplays: "Dreamboat" romantic comedy; "Champion's Season" (comedy); "First Starship" (G-rated adventure).

Reviews of A Death In Beverly Hills by David Grace

H. Writer reviewed on Sep. 2, 2016

I really enjoyed reading this book. Despite mixed feelings about Steve and about Tom, I couldn't help but root for them. This author is definitely on my short list of favs.

A gripping read with interesting sub-stories and believable characters, very enjoyable despite some poor editing!

A very great read. Enough twists and turns to keep me up late. I mostly loved it til near the end - that seemed to be a bit too rushed. But over-all very good.

I agree with Phillip Bower's review, and I too will read more.

Great story, very good read. The characters were quite real. They put the pieces together in the mystery and attempted to put the pieces of their life together as well.

I'll be reading more from this author.
