About the Author

My name is David Teves, and I am a storyteller. That's it, plain and simple. My writing falls under the domain of magical realism: sci-fi, horror, fantasy. I was born on the island of Kauai, in the Hawaiian Islands, the youngest of four children. In the 1950's we moved to California to the town of San Leandro across the bay from San Francisco. A lot of people claim they were a sensitive child, but I grew up thinking that the world around me was not real, and I lived my life as if I were a stranger to it.

I dabbled with writing when I was young, but lacked the spark to think I might be able to do it reasonably well or that something might come of it. I married and raised two children. Then one day in the late 80's, almost out of nowhere, I began writing "A Matter of Time".

My goal in writing has always been to create a thing of beauty. Even though many of my stories are dark, I have attempted to infuse in them a sense of wonder in this mysterious world. And with the writing I was no longer a stranger to life. Through the power of words, I was alive at last.

It is my hope that you will enjoy my writing. It is up to you to decide if it is worthy. All I can tell you is that my heart and soul are in it--for good or for bad.
