David was named only one of two 2020 Adventure Writers Competition Grandmaster Award Finalists for his novel, Intrepid Spirit. Kind words from the AWC website:

“Experience, talent and a will to create sounds like characteristics of an adventure novel character, but it also describes David! Check out his book trailer and in-depth interview! He is the real deal, and so is Intrepid Spirit.

The Adventure Writers Competition is the only contest that focuses on adventure writing. Writers compete for the Clive Cussler Grandmaster Award.
