Quietly making a living as an author. Through the miracle of ebooks, I hit "publish" and my stories appear on websites alongside all the other real books. Worldwide. My novels include SALOMON, ON RASPBERRY LANE, BELLS ABOVE GREENS, COINS ON THE CURB, and BOTTLE CAP SEA.

Visit www.davidxavierpico.weebly.com and let me know which book you would like to read for free.

"If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write."

My favorite authors are the dead guys of literary fiction: Graham Greene, Richard Yates, Evelyn Waugh, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Fitzgerald, Sinclair Lewis. I have to put Cormac McCarthy and Charles Portis on the list.
