J.P. David, a speaker at the 2016 Left Coast Crime mystery convention, is a member of Sisters in Crime and former coordinator of a Mystery Writers of America satellite. His first book, Double Take, was a Kindle Top-Ten seller in the detective category. He has a degree in creative writing from the California State University at Long Beach.
Before writing novels, J.P. claims that he wrote memos and company policies that nobody paid any attention to. Before climbing to (and jumping from) the top of the corporate ladder, J.P. supervised a team of store detectives, an experience that provided the inspiration for his private detective character, Hank Hammond.
