From the jacket copy of my first Novel: Apple Pie---
"In the grand epic tradition, David Mazzotta struggled to overcome an ordinary middle-class childhood filled with public school bullies, downscale shopping malls, and awkward adolescent moments in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Michigan. While attending the University of Michigan he worked as a bartender and a car salesman before leaving to seek glamour and excitement in Northern Virginia where he did hard time as an accountant near his nation's capital. David now lives a care-free life just outside Ann Arbor, Michigan, but sometimes wishes he were nearer the ocean."
---That pretty much sums it up. Although, if you're really interested, you can follow my life on a semi-weekly basis at my personal weblog, a dam site.
