About the Author

Born in Stockton, California in the 1950s, David Perry moved to Seattle, Washington in1960 with his parents and brother. His pre-college days were spent growing up in the Northwestern U.S., almost equally divided between the Puget Sound area of Washington and Northwestern Montana, in Libby. He equally enjoys spending time on the water or camping amidst the tall Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine trees.
David enlisted in the Navy's nuclear power program in December 1976, but before he started boot camp he was selected and reported to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. During the four years spent at the Naval Academy David nourished his love of sailing where the Severn River empties into the Chesapeake Bay. It was at this time that he was also introduced to that intrepid seafaring officer, Horatio Hornblower, by C.S Forester. This acquaintance would expand to many characters of that genre.
David's naval adventures took him far from the banks of the Severn River, sailing the steel ships of the twentieth century on the Mediterranean Sea, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and across the vast Pacific. Later, after retiring from the Naval Reserve, he even walked on the Arctic Ocean, although that was no miracle; it was frozen at the time.
As a civilian David has worked in the human resources field of corporate America. He has served as a member and chair of many non-profit organization boards as well as on the leadership teams of local churches he attended with his family. David currently lives with his wife, Bonnie, of over thirty years at their home in Liberty Lake, Washington.
