BIOGRAPHY

David Harder has been writing for more than twenty-five years. His novels are inspiring stories about individuals who influence their world in unique ways.

David grew up in southern California and served in the US Navy during the Vietnam conflict. For eight years, he lived and worked in Germany and traveled throughout Europe. Upon returning to America, he settled in northern California and was employed by multiple Silicon Valley start-up companies. During his career in the computer industry, David traveled the world for businesses with cutting-edge technologies in computer and data-storage. As part of his career, he wrote for trade journals and created marketing materials within the computer industry.

When David entered college in 1990, he found he enjoyed writing stories. With encouragement from family and friends, he wrote short stories for fun. A graduate of San Jose College with a degree in business, he also studied at Santa Clara University towards a degree in international business.

After retiring, David focused on two passions: writing and clay art. He is a published author and uses his wheel and clay during demonstrations in churches to deliver a powerful testimony. His message visualizes how God shapes our lives for different purposes-no matter how old we are, and even if we seem to be a failure.

David is a graduate of Vineyard Institute in biblical studies and leadership. He resides in the Prescott area of Arizona with his wife, Emily, and their border collie, Shiloh.

      • In addition to joining the Guild with Jerry Jenkins, I also belong to a local Word Weavers writers group. I've also complimented these two with several good books on writing. When I look over my writing, I can see a tremendous shift in style and format. I attribute it to what I've learned through these efforts.

      • Absolutely! When chosen from our own history, events we've experienced and woven into a story brings realistic life, especially dialogue to the manuscript.

      • Several elements are important for any good story, no matter the genre. First, the story needs to be engaging with the reader--to the point that the reader becomes a partner. Second, read-ability. I often will read my stories aloud and record them. When I play them back, I hear things I completely missed when writing. Sentences I stumble over are quickly changed to make the story flow. Third, the story need to pull the reader forward. They must be left wanting when they finish a page, enough to compel them to read further or they might miss something. Fourth, the technical issues are critical, especially for readers who take pride in finding errors--and believe me, they will find them! And finally fifth, and something I recently started to develop in my own stories, the writer needs to develop a pace to the whole book. Start with an event and then start building the tension through the whole story. Bring the resolution nearly towards the end.

      • It's okay to take a break--you're not a failure to pause for a few days or even weeks. Often, I spend the time editing or I might even start a page or chapter on a new book that crept into my mind. Like all talents and pursuits, attention to consistent exercise is important. I also read books from other authors, making note when I spot style or methods I want to incorporate into my own.
