"We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read." - Jules Verne

About DWD and contact info.

Indianapolis, IN, United States

Family man. School teacher. Avid reader and listener of audiobooks. 15 years+ of posting reviews on books of all sorts. Really, a renaissance man.

I'm a native Hoosier, a father of two and married for more than 25 years. My wife and I are also proud to have passed on a love of books to our children (and to the family dog that knows some books are quite tasty). Professionally, I am a secondary public school teacher with licenses to teach Spanish, United States history, world history, government and economics.

My tastes are wide-ranging and include histories, thrillers, mysteries, biographies, political commentaries, a bit of sci-fi, a few westerns and even graphic novels. Good writing is good writing no matter the genre. That being said, I do not read romance, erotica or poetry.

I first posted reviews in 2001 on a now defunct internet message board just for fun - but the more I started to write reviews the more I realized that it made me read more carefully and with more depth. Since then, I have posted a review on every book I have read except for Brave New World. I don't know why, I just wasn't feeling the need to write that one and I'm still not.

I was a contributor to the now defunct websites SFsite.com and Audiobook Jukebox.
