Dave is a romantic fiction author, writing stories infused with a kaleidoscope of emotions that nurture the heart while exploring elements of the human condition. He appreciates the opportunity to connect with readers through a shared emotional chord and the enchanted sentiments of a timeless love story.

Like coffee provides caffeine for the physical body, Dave's stories supply caffeine for the soul. He lives in the Sunshine State with his beautiful wife, amazing son, and three cats (the real monarchs of the house).

Words and stories are like magical pixie dust. When sprinkled over us, they give flight to our wildest dreams.

We don't need to understand how or why this happens. We only need to embrace it, and give it permission to be. Therein lies the magic.

Good evening. On behalf of Walt Disney World, the place where dreams come true, we welcome you to Epcot and World Showcase. We've gathered here tonight around the fire, as people of all lands have gathered for thousands of years before us, to share a light and to share a story ~ an amazing story, as old as time itself, but still being written. And though each of us has our own individual stories to tell, a true adventure emerges when we bring them all together as one. We hope you enjoy our story tonight: Reflections of Earth.

Epcot's fireworks and laser show, Illuminations: Reflection of Earth, never ceases to amaze me, especially when viewed from the Norway pavilion with School Bread and Rice Cream covered with Strawberry Sauce. The lore of the Norse people permeates your soul while the flicker of each flame tickles your sense of adventure.

It's my happy place, a personal sanctuary that inspires me. While there, I am connected to the aura surrounding me in a mystical and ethereal way. I am consumed by its magic.

It's what I aim to do with my writing and stories. To inspire. To evoke a kaleidoscope of emotions. To connect.

Stories are like a cappuccino. Instead of providing a jolt of adrenaline to your physical system, they infuse you with something more. They are caffeine for the soul.

Some read stories to escape reality. I write them to navigate it. As the prelude to Illuminations eloquently states, there's magic when we share our stories and bring them together as one.
