David Rattler


David was born in Marianna, Arkansas; five months before the dreamer was gunned down on a balcony in Memphis, Tennessee. Having grown up in the racial charged aftermath of the civil rights movement; his works reflect that insurrectionist, no holds barred, relentless zeal that push readers beyond the white lie to a profound truth. Interwoven between traditional writing styles; the author’s love of languages and his unique insight will take you on an unforgettable journey through the darkest realms of a different human experience. His works has been described by many in the underground as an intense roller-coaster ride of emotions. His bold, ruthless approach; not only to life, but story telling has left readers bewildered and speechless. Some has even called his brutal angle of attack: a psychological overload. The term "Shock Factor" quickly became the signature trademark of his works throughout underground organizations.

The Author lives in Bangor, Maine.

“If a novelist avoids a profound truth and surrenders to the comfortable lie they prefer;
cowardice becomes his shadow."
—David Rattler

"In non-fiction we uncover the lie; in fiction we discover a different truth."
—Aminatta Forna
