David W. Goldman   Web site  
David W. Goldman grew up reading -- and planning to write -- science fiction. After winning a university poetry award, though, he was shanghaied from his writing career by a time-consuming Boston trade school. He subsequently moved to Puget Sound, where he further sidetracked himself by abandoning his trade and becoming a software company. A decade later he convinced somebody else to provide him regular work hours and a steady paycheck, and the sudden novelty of free evenings and weekends -- plus a writing workshop with Ursula Le Guin -- reminded him of his original plan. David currently lives in Portland, Oregon with his multi-talented wife, two appropriately hyperactive cats (Dash and Apostrophe), two digital pianos, three PCs, and eleven (mostly vintage) Macintoshes.

I write all kinds of stuff, but I like to include at least SOME element of humor in whatever I write (even when wildly inappropriate for the piece). I'm currently working on a few short stories with elements drawn from Native American history and culture (a former research area of mine) and a modern fantasy/military novel set in an alternate North America (drawing from the same elements).
