David E. Barnett
Born on August 26, 1972, David is a native Oregonian and still resides in the small city of Albany, where he grew up. Married now for almost seven years to his lovely wife Corinne, David lives a somewhat quiet life in a small duplex apartment along with their two-year-old Siamese cat, Sugar.
David began writing short stories in middle school, and has retained the itch to write ever since. In 1988 and 1989, David was invited to the Oregon Young Writer's Symposium in Salem, OR for two stories that he had written. The first, The Days of the Green and the Gray, garnered special attention due its “descriptiveness of the times” as the story revolved around a young soldier's experiences with his unit during the Vietnam War era. The second, a humorous story called The Test, dealt with a young Native American brave out to prove his manhood with very laughable results.
In 2007 David was challenged to finish one of his unfinished books by a relative who even went so far as to give him a deadline. Out of this, the book A Silent Shadow was born.
When David is not working on his fiction, he likes to write informative articles for Associated Content. One of his articles, A Sarcastic Look at the Emmy's, was in the spotlight on the site for several weeks and had much attention during that time making it one of his most successful articles. Along with this, David has published other articles on such subjects as movie and game reviews, home improvement, health issues, business reviews, and even current legal issues such as the rights of the elderly and the horrors of elderly abuse.
When David isn’t writing, he can be found reading a good book, playing a video game, or watching movies with his wife into the early morning hours. He has worked in the nursing home industry and also had a stint with a large cell phone insurance company as a customer service representative.
