About the Author

After earning a Ph.D. in English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, David Collins taught English for forty years at Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri. In his years at Westminster he published more than fifteen scholarly essays. His creative nonfiction essays have appeared in The New Laurel Review, The Hawaii Review, The Chariton Review, Pleiades, and Well Versed, Interpretations, and Uncertain Promise. Interviews with two Paris-based American writers, Diane Johnson and Jake Lamar, were published in The AWP Chronicle and Belles Lettres. He has written as well for St. Louis Magazine and Leadership Magazine (including one of his all-time favorites, a reflection on the night Maya Angelou spoke at Westminster College) and for fourteen months authored a column on life in Rwanda for the Fulton Sun.
Two of Collins's short essays won awards from the Columbia Writers' Guild, first place for "My Father's Maps" and second place for "On Carnegie Hill." Another short essay, "Body Language," took first place in a contest sponsored by Compass Flower Press. In July 2016, a chapter from the manuscript for Accidental Activists: Mark Phariss, Vic Holmes, and Their Fight for Marriage Equality in Texas won first place at the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference.
Accidental Activists was published in August 2017.
With the completion of Accidental Activists, Collins has returned to work on three long-term projects: collecting and editing his creative nonfiction essays for publication in book form, a book-length series of walking tours of literary Paris tentatively titled Parisian Places, American Faces: Walks on the Left Bank with American Writers, and an as yet untitled novel set in Paris in the years that led to the 9-11 tragedy.
