David Hearne is an author of both fiction and nonfiction. His novels are written as fast paced thrillers that weave fictional characters into real events and examine problems facing contemporary society. His latest book, Hulagu's Web, a political thriller about a woman running for President, features social commentary on many levels. His upcoming novel "The Christmas Special" also fulfills his goal of both entertaining and informing readers.
David James Hearne was born in Bellows Falls Vermont. Parts of his childhood were spent in Charlestown, New Hampshire, where his parents maintained a family home. The rest of the time David’s family led the itinerant life of army dependents accompanying James Hearne, an army officer, to the various military installations he was assigned to. David’s life of moving from one military installation to another offered him a broader view of the world then was available from his idyllic hometown of Charlestown, New Hampshire.
His father’s military assignments introduced him to diverse cultures and views as he adapted to life in places like Blackstone, Virginia, Washington D.C., Leesville, LA., Wrightstown, N.J., Tirrenia, Italy and Charlestown, N.H. A principle lesson he l earned at an early age from his frequent moves from the north to the south was that social truths are simply beliefs unchallenged and pragmatic to those who espouse them. He came to recognize how easily views are shaped and forged into irrefutable truths by your peers, authority figures, and vocal vacuous celebrities. This exposure to the divisiveness of often-opposing views from one locale to the other taught him the need of a good command of history to help analyze and make conclusions in social matters that are so subjective.
In the 1990’s after David’s book “Enable Command Performance” was published he spent many months on the seminar circuit appearing in most of the major cities. In San Diego, his 1991 seminar coincided with the 6-day period of rioting and murder of 54 people triggered by part of the aftermath of the arrest of Rodney King in Los Angeles, Ca. He experienced a firsthand glimpse of violent rioting and felt the societal pressure to express his feelings in only the politically correct vernacular of the media.
David enjoys reading and new adventures in life. He still loves to travel and view the world with his own eyes and form his own conclusions on the events and happenings of the world he lives in.
David has appeared on more than 50 radio stations including two NPR affiliates. He has also appeared on TV numerous times and was the topic of an 15 minute FOX special on The Jim King of Road show.
Currently he lives in the town of Lumberton, Texas, an hour drive from the city of Houston, Texas.
