About David Reichart

I'm a blue-collar guy who has a poet's sensibilities, minus the talent to adequately express them.

My writing career includes eight years in the newspaper business as a reporter, copy editor and managing editor and five years as a freelance copywriter. There was one major problem with all of that--I only got paid for writing things that somebody else wanted me to write. It got old.

Like a lot of people who majored in English, my resume is all over the board. On the plus side, I've gained some unusual experience and met a lot of interesting people. Somehow, while trying to make a living in the traditional sense, I've managed to do a lot of writing in my spare time--work I wanted to do, things I wanted to write, things I never got paid for.

Eventually, my spare-time creative writing began to pay off. I signed with an agent in Los Angeles and later one in New York, and I managed to option a screenplay, Big Sandy, to Hollwyood Producer Timothy Blake. Both agents signed me during writers strikes on the basis of a screenplay sample, and in each case when the strike was over I went to the bottom of the totem pole. Of course, that’s where I belonged in relation to writers who where actually making money.

Now that the independent publishing revolution is hitting full stride, I feel a growing sense of excitement and optimism. As I prepare my manuscripts for publication, I'm still dreaming about the day I'm finally proclaimed an overnight success.

Review by: Rejoice Sarah on May 04, 2011 :
I have not enjoyed a romantic novel in recent times as much as I did this. It is pure clean fun that I can enjoy with my daughters. A solid heroine who has guts and is able to stand on her own two feet. I look forward to reading more form this author. Rejoice Sarah

Review by: bashyj1 on April 28, 2011 :
At first i like the synopsis of the book when i read it, but there was too much of the driving in the plot and not much romance. Could have been better. Although i liked how Annalisa handled the big rig not many women could do that kind of driving.
