David Fessenden is the author of seven books, including Father to Nobody’s Children with CLC Publications, and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles; the editor of numerous books; and a frequent speaker at writers’ conferences. In 2011, he compiled his experience in Christian publishing to produce Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract, published by SonFire Media. Following this book’s success, SonFire asked him to write the first in a series of instructional e-books for Christian authors. A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal was released in April of 2014.
His first novel, The Case of the Exploding Speakeasy, came out in 2013 through Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. It reflects David’s love for history and for the Sherlock Holmes stories of Arthur Conan-Doyle. He is furiously working on the sequel, to be entitled The Case of the Boomerang Body.
He is also a literary agent with WordWise Media Services and an independent publishing consultant with degrees in journalism and theology. David has served in editorial management positions for several Christian book publishers and was regional editor for the largest Protestant weekly newspaper in the country. Through all of these experiences, he has acquired over 30 years’ expertise in writing and editing.
David and his wife Jacque live in south-central Pennsylvania; they have two adult sons/daughters-in-law, and three grandchildren.http://fromconcepttocontract.com
