David Gilmore is an American author of World War Two and historical fiction. In his spare time he enjoys growing his own food, traveling and exploring archaeological sites. He is also an avid reader and likes to be reading at least one fiction and nonfiction book at all times.
Who are your favorite authors?
I enjoy the works of the early twentieth century authors such as Earnest Hemingway, B. Traven, James Hilton and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Modern authors I enjoy reading include Amour Towles, Ann Hood, Alan M. Petrillo, and Spanish author Maria Duenas.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was nine or ten at the time. It was an adventure story about sailing ships on the Great Lakes. When I finished the book, I wanted to read another. From that point on, I’ve been an avid reader, and now an author.
