David Grant Urban is a San Diego native who has done a little of everything in life, but prefers writing most of all. At nineteen he bicycled border to border and lived briefly in Vancouver, Canada, before traveling coast to coast by train several times. Out of money, he lived and worked
in New Orleans for a year before returning home.
Back in San Diego he lived aboard a sailboat a few years, started a chemical compounding firm, worked his way through college, and spent far too many years working in retail.
He lives in San Marcos, California, and is quietly at work on another novel and a volume of short stories.
