About Derek Davis

A big-city escapee, I live in the quiet hinterlands of northeast Pennsylvania. Former editor of the alternative paper now known as The Philadelphia Weekly, I've published over 60 short stories and and wrote a book-length history of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Did a bunch of freelance editing, such as running the SAP Americas customer magazine, interviews with the likes of Noam Chomsky, and smoothing English translations of German PR.
I had the most fun collaborating on a screenplay with my daughter, Caitlin and writing a cycle of eight local-history plays up here – as well as vaudeville routines. My favorite activity (other than writing) is turning trees into firewood for the wood stove that provides our "central" heating.
My wife is the most wonderful potter I've ever known.
