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 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.
