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 earned my BFA in Creative Writing a long time ago in a galaxy, far, far, away (in Indiana). More recently, I replaced my brain with a much smarter version after attending the Odyssey Writing Workshop in 2015. I'm currently fascinated (and depleted!) by the energy vampirism of my adorable and brilliant 3-year-old. I'm a big fan of wonder and sincerity.

I live in Prague, Czech Republic. If my career were akin to cooking, mine would be making pancakes. Not the fundamentally flavourless result, at least I hope not. What I meant is that I seem to be branding-averse and have spread myself as widely as possible across the flat pan of format and genre. My job is to write stories and scripts for screen and recently a sci fi trilogy of novels, but I also sometimes write for video games and, in the past, did a produced play and some poems. I manage to retain some degree of Britishness by means of membership to the Writers' Guild of Great Britain.

My short fiction has appeared in Analog (four times!), Lightspeed, OSCIGMS, and on Escape Pod and other markets. My story "Keep Talking" was Apex Magazine Story of the Year in 2014 and was called "Everything Science Fiction should be" by The Oxford Culture Review. I sell poems now and then, but don't hold that against me.
