About David Meyer
I love adventure. Strange, earth-shattering mysteries, too. Add those things together, stir in some exciting characters and a ton of raucous action, and you've got one of my novels.
I specialize in action-adventure stories and apocalyptic fiction, all infused with mystery-box elements (think TV shows like Lost, Wayward Pines, the 100, and Westworld). I take great joy in entertaining my readers with original, rollicking rides. Ones full of unexpected twists and turns that hurtle them toward satisfying endings.
But that's only part of why I do this …
Life is full of mystery and adventure. But it doesn't always feel that way. Oftentimes, the daily grind is just that … an excruciating, soul-crushing cycle of bills, obligations, and responsibilities. I should know. I spent years of my life mired in such a rut.
That's the real reason why I write stories. To help people who are stuck in the grind. Not just to give them an amazing read (although that's important, too!), but also to kickstart their imaginations. To get their blood racing, to get them dreaming about lost treasures, vicious monsters, forbidden lands, and mind-boggling mysteries. That's what got me out of my rut. Hopefully, my books can do something similar for you.
