David is an Armenian-American writer and artist from Jacksonville, FL
David “Roman” Shakhramanov is an Armenian-American immigrant from the former Soviet Union. Born in Baku, Azerbaijan SSR in 1981, David and his family became refugees when anti-Armenian pogroms erupted in Azerbaijan in the late 1980s. His family spent the next four years moving from place to place, first living in war-torn Armenia of the 90s, and then in post-Soviet Russia, until finally coming to the United States in 1993 and settling in Jacksonville, Florida, where he currently resides.
The events in David’s childhood fueled his already-vivid imagination and helped him create the universe of Eternal Horizon. His biggest inspirations were American sci-fi movies and cartoons that were banned in Soviet Russia and fantasy novels. David graduated from the University of North Florida with a B.A. in English and a Minor in Fine Arts. Eternal Horizon: The Chronicle of Vincent Saturn is his first book.
