I’m David Goodner. I live in North Texas with my wife who adores me, and my two cats who tolerate me as long as I keep cleaning out the litter box. You’re here (I hope) because you’ve seen one of my children’s books and loved it so much you wanted to know more about me.

That’s absolutely wonderful. In a million years, I never would have thought that was a possibility, and now it is.

But I have other interests, too. I like to watch cheesy movies and read comic books. I play role playing games and occasionally design gaming content and paint miniatures.

This website attempts to combine all my interests in some kind of logical order. I’m not the most logical or ordered sort of person, so it’s not likely to work very well.

Here’s what you’ll find:

Books: The stuff I’ve written, and at least some of the places you can buy it.

Contact: I flatter myself to think you’ll want to be able to get in touch with me.

News: I also flatter myself to think you’ll care what’s going on with my publishing adventures, my public appearances, book launches, and stuff. I used to stick all this stuff in my blog, but I decided this might be more organized.

Blog: The Blog is really for adults. I’m passionate about quite a few things, and I don’t always watch my language. If you’re privileged enough that you can avoid politics, my blog is something you would likely want to avoid. Not all of the entries will be loaded. Among my passions are movie reviews and long, rambling stories about my life.

Actually, you might want to avoid those, too. And that’s okay with me. I’m not the boss of you, and we don’t all have to like the same things.
