Politics, what-ifs, all-knowing historical ghosts.
Matt, a young college student with political aspirations, is dead set on becoming president someday. Inspired by his best friend, he wants to end poverty in America, and being president will give him the power to do just that. His plan: an economic bill of rights, that he believes should be guaranteed to every citizen. In a strange, near death-like experience, time freezes, and Matt encounters a man who calls himself Ben Franklin. Franklin tells Matt that he will become president but his plan to "fix" America will fail...no matter what he does. He is, however, given a unique proposition - to travel back in time to the Constitutional Convention and present his plan, making it part of the foundation of the US. How it affected Matt's present is something he never imagined. He soon learns that even the best intentions can have unexpected consequences, and that his encounters with the Founding Fathers have only just begun...

About the Author
David returned to graduate school, earning a master's degree from the University of North Texas with concentrations in communication and sociology. During that time, he began creative writing in the form of two short screenplays, one dramatic and one science fiction. He also started a periodic newsletter before joining a Christian ministry as staff writer and editor. While there, he coauthored two nonfiction books, The Marvelous Exchange and The Rest of the Gospel: When the Partial Gospel Has Worn You Out.
While earning another master's degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, David entertained a new craft: writing fiction. He decided that in a culture dominated by sound bites, reality TV, and the Internet, communicating through story could reach otherwise untapped audience. Taking some material on worldviews that he had planned to put into nonfiction form, he began writing Dinner with a Perfect Stranger.
David's current study focuses on the postmodern worldview and how it intersects with the Christian conception of God, meaning in life, and the process of knowing (epistemology). He is currently writing his second novel.
David lives in Texas with his wife and two children, where he works for a nonprofit organization.
