David Kovach400Born and raised in California, Dave has a love for San Francisco—its blend of history, progress, scenery, and, of course, its cuisine, make it special. After a stint in the Air Force, Dave received his education at Cal Poly, S.L.O. and UC Davis—where he met his wife, Karen. They have two children, Scott and Jen, now grown, and moved to Iowa where the topography is part of the Great Plains, but the people are anything but plain.

While working a daytime job with the government, Dave began writing study guides in the evenings for the church they attended. After writing a few of these and learning some writing skills, he decided to try his hand at fiction. Five Days of Fear is his debut novel. Dave left the tentacles of government employment and now devotes his time to writing.

Dave loves landscaping and Karen loves gardening. They “have such felicity, that they seemed to be made for each other."
