Hi, I’m David Berens. I’m like the superhero version of a writer who is a tennis pro by day and an Amazon Kindle bestselling author by night, but without the glasses, or the muscles. I write what I like to call island thrillers that follow my zany character, Troy Bodean, around the country to beaches and islands I’ve either lived on, visited, or would like to live on someday. And I also write fantasy about worlds I’d love to live in or visit – if they existed.
My goal has always been to write a story that makes you forget you’re reading about it and feel like you’re living it. I want the words to disappear and the worlds to surround you.
We asked the author…

What sound or noise do you hate? My baby girl crying… at 2 a.m. and then at 4 a.m. and then at 5:30 a.m.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Heyyyy, I know you!
