Dave has degrees in journalism and theology, and over 30 years of experience in writing and editing. He has served in editorial management positions for Christian book publishers and was regional editor for the largest Protestant weekly newspaper in the country.
Dave has published seven books, written hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles, and edited numerous books. He is a frequent speaker at writers’ conferences. Two of his books, Writing the Christian Nonfiction Book: Concept to Contract and A Christian Writer’s Guide to the Book Proposal, are based on his experience in Christian publishing. The Case of the Exploding Speakeasy, Dave’s first novel, reflects his love for history and for the Sherlock Holmes stories of Arthur SaConan-Doyle.
Dave and his wife, Jacque, live in south-central Pennsylvania and have two adult sons.

Greatest Editorial Needs: Books on growing deeper in your Christian life
Overworked topics: Devotionals, how to become a Christian, basics for new Christians. We want books that reflect the apostle Paul's priority of going beyond elementary principles of faith and on to maturity (see Hebrews 6:1).
Helpful Tips: We are happy to review book proposals, with or without a partial or complete manuscript. No manuscript will be considered, however, without a book proposal. We are especially interested in books that reflect the author's serious study of Scripture.

Helpful Tips: Honeycomb House Publishing LLC is a Christian subsidy publishing house, assisting authors to publish their books at their own expense, so they can reap the full profit on the sale of their books. Looking to self-publish? Let us guide you through the maze. We believe there really is no such thing as pure self-publishing, because no one can publish a book entirely on their own.
