About


Hi! My name's David Powers King (you can call me DPK). Long before I could form letters, I had fallen in love with stories. What started out as a preschool poem had grown into a sci fi adventure that led to my first complete novel at age 15.

I dabbled with film and animation in my hometown near LA for a few years, but writing proved to be my true ambition. Today I'm an author of Fantasy (Woven) and Sci Fi (The Undead Road). You could say I'm something of an animation nerd as well (don't tell anybody, okay?).

Right now I'm warming back into writing, having successfully completed a certified substance abuse counselor program. I am also the president of Dashbook Books, my self-publishing imprint. Please check out my works on Amazon and animation review contributions on Cinematic Universe Ultimate.

I'm represented by Meredith Bernstein from the Meredith Bernstein Literary Agency. Thank you for visiting The Cosmic Laire!
