David Douglas Ford is an author of both fiction and non-fiction, a creative thinker, a generally acceptable public speaker, a writer of odd and yet interesting essays, a terrible automotive mechanic, an acclaimed humorist, and a licensed motorist. After a long and reasonably rewarding career in sales and marketing, he has turned full attention to his writing interests. These run the gamut from pure lighthearted comedy to unique autobiographical approaches to commentary on the meaning of life and the nature of man. David and his wife of 45 years currently reside in Texas.
