About the Author

My writing reflects my memories growing up along the North Carolina coast near Wrightsville and Carolina Beaches. I left that area when I graduated high school and traveled half-way around the world and back collecting memories and experiences which help shape my characters. Now back in eastern North Carolina, I enjoy bringing to life characters whose adventures take place in my favorite part of the world.

D. W. Davis has a comforting way of reeling in his readers. The Boy from Bugzy Beach is no exception. I read the River Dream series and fell in love with the story lines and the flawless writing style that came across effortless on the pages. The author has a gentle style that takes his reader into the lives of his characters.
This story captured my attention from the first beautifully poetic paragraph. Just Mr Davis' use of wordage is so pleasing. I couldn't help but take my time holding onto the many memorable phrases and endearing moments.

The three dimensional characters are familiar and life-like. There is a vulnerability to his characters that makes me drawn to them even more.Young love is so endearing. This coming of age story is so sweet with all the awkward moments and the firsts. It's really nice seeing new love through a guys point of view. This is more than just that. This is an emotional read that is sure to touch people.

“Jacques clamped his mouth shut, pointed to the placard advertising the teen romance, River Dream, and held up two fingers. The clerk, a girl he recognized from South Hanover High, but didn’t really know, smirked at him and told him he owed twelve bucks. Jacques handed her a twenty and she counted out his change before handing him the two tickets.
“Enjoy the movie,” the clerk said automatically, before instantly forgetting him and turning her attention to the next person in line.”

When do girl-boy friendships drift into more serious relationships and do they always give a warning? Not for Jacques O’Larrity, fifteen, son of the Parisian Bean, Busby Beach’s best coffee shop. His friendship with Cienna, who did not return Jacques’ affections the summer before, has finally taken a serious turn just as a new summer girl, Scarlett grabs his heartstrings. Jacques is pulled in two directions until someone else makes the decision for him. The appearance of his long-absent deadbeat dad further complicates his already confused emotions.
Don’t be in a hurry to read this book. Take your time, brew a cup of good coffee, put your feet up – preferably on the deck of your beach cottage- and sit back to enjoy. Laid back and as easy going as the NC beach life they reflect, Davis’ characters will lull you into a pleasant world of local humor and close-knit community. A good summer read. Details take me back to days of sand in my flip flops, and greasy burgers that tasted like nothing better after a hot day in the NC surf. True to the coastal way of keeping the majority of local shops local, TBofBB, lets the reader in on the private lives of this story’s shop owners and families, and as Jacques puts it, “the unofficial club.”

The book The Boy from Buzby Beach is fantastic. If you are looking for a book to read on the beach or just to sit there and relax this is definitely a great choice,it will be especially captivating for teens because they are the most likely to be going through what the main character Jacque is going through. This an incredible book just like the other series the author wrote River Dream. I would definitely encourage you to buy this book and I myself am totally excited for the next book!!

The 'Beach' I lived at and walked every night was San Diego ... Spent time on the Jersey Shore too. I have to tell you I really like the style this author brings to the page... This is the second Young Adult novel I've read from this Author and I am really enjoying a level of comfort ... He gets the 'Beach' vibe and conveys it masterfully through his characters, settings and as much should be appreciated as the real feel of living on or near 'The Beach'. Well done Mr. Davis... I look forward to more reads from you ... Its not often I can sit out on my dry-land deck and hear and smell the 'Beach' again... Buzby or East Mission Bay ... Thanks for putting me there... Cheers!

This book is a good read for a young teen but not so much for an adult. I think I might have liked it better if there was a plot and the book was better edited. I came across head-hopping at least every two pages and there were other numerous editing mishaps that should have been caught. I was also a bit put off by the attitude of the protagonist. He can't figure out which of the three girls in his life he wants to be with, finally decides on one, but gets over their abrupt break-up rather quickly (one day) and moves to the next girl. Then again, I've never been a 15-year-old boy and maybe this is how they act in real life. I will say that the descriptions of the town were very nice. I would love to visit a place like Buzby Beach. This book will probably entertain teens ages 14-16 but I felt it needed more work.

The Boy from Buzby Beach follows 15 year old Jacques during the first few weeks of summer break. Jacques is a really good kid who gets up extremely early to help out at his mom's coffee shop and the small island town is full of interesting characters. DW Davis did a wonderful job of describing the island lifestyle and the typical struggles of teens fumbling through dating and love. This was a heartwarming story that I very much enjoyed.
