David Crosby

After careers as a photojournalist and then an advertising photographer, David Crosby started a new life as a writer. First writing the non-fiction "Keeping us Afloat", Crosby then turned to fiction with "Million Dollar Staircase". It was just the beginning for him.
A long time fan of mysteries by authors including John D. McDonald, Randy Wayne White, and Wayne Stinnett, Crosby's love of the genre has led to his Florida based "Will Harper" series.
Main character Will Harper lives on a 57-foot Grand Banks Trawler, much like McDonald's Travis McGee lived on a houseboat. Crosby's own love of boats began with a 16-foot runabout and has lasted through four houseboats and a cabin cruiser. The non-fiction book "Keeping Us Afloat" is set on a two week trip down the Intra Coastal Waterway from Maryland to Sarasota, Florida, on a Grand Banks trawler.
Crosby also has a life long love of travel and of living in interesting homes. He's cruised much of the Caribbean and visited Mexico, Canada and Paris, all while living in a plantation house, a 1929 synagogue, a house boat, a lakeside log home, a 10-acre farm, and a loft in a hundred year-old textile mill.
Writing is a passion he developed as a journalism major at the University of Georgia, where he earned an ABJ in Magazine Writing. Photography took over his life in the meantime, and it's only in the past few years that writing has re-emerged as a focus in his life.
A voracious reader, Crosby now lives in a tiny house with a motorhome parked outside. He lives in Land O Lakes, Florida, with his wife Marilyn, a retired Pastor, and their Shih Tzu, Zoe.
