David Williams is currently a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA). He serves a little church in a little town just outside of Washington, DC. David has driven forklifts, vanloads of Salvation Army bellringers, and taxis. He’s taught games of skill and chance in Colonial Williamsburg, and managed a research grantmaking program at the Aspen Institute.
David received his BA in Religious Studies from the University of Virginia, and received his Master’s of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry degrees from Wesley Theological seminary.
While juggling work, marriage, post-graduate education, and being the shuttle-driver-dad for his children, David still managed to publish articles and stories in outlets as wildly disparate as OMNI, The Christian Century, and Wired. He likes his motorcycles dirty, his coffee strong, and his beers hoppy. David blogs at www.belovedspear.org and lives in Annandale, Virginia, with his wife and sons. When the English Fall is his debut novel.
