About the Author

International award winning author David Wind, has published forty novels including Science Fiction, Mystery, and Suspense Thrillers. He lives and writes in Florida, where he and his wife Bonnie, share their home with their dog Alfie, a Moyan standard poodle. Moyan is French for middle—he is between a standard and a miniature poodle.

A Hybrid Traditional and Independent Author, David left traditional publishing in 2008, to become an independently published writer. He published Angels in Mourning, his ‘homage’ to the old-time private detective books of the 50’s and the 60’s. He used to sneak them from his parents’ night tables and read them as a young boy. Angels is a contemporary take on the old-style noir detective. Angels in Mourning won the Book of the Month Reader’s Choice Award.

David’s Contemporary Fiction novel, published in December of 2017, and based on the Harry Chapin Song, A Better Place to Be, was named a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree, signifying a book of the highest literary quality, and written by Independent writers; and received the Bronze Award from Ireland's Drunken Druid International Literary Awards.

The first book of David’s Sci-Fi Fantasy series Tales of Nevaeh. Born to Magic, is an international Amazon genre Best Seller, and a Kindle Review of Books finalist for Fantasy Book of the year. The second and third books of the series, The Dark Masters: Vol 2, and TRINITY: The Battle For Nevaeh, Vol. 3, have both reached the Amazon Top 100 in its genre.

David's Fantasy, Queen of Knights, is a medieval fantasy based on history.

He wrote the Medical Thriller, The Whistleblower’s Daughter, with Terese Ramin. The idea for this Medical Legal Thriller came shortly after the death of a close friend. David said, "I couldn't help but wonder about the medication...."

His suspense thrillers are The Hyte Maneuver, (a Literary guild alternate selection); The Sokova Convention; and, The Morrisy Manifest. Out of The Shadows; and, Desperately Killing Suzanne, are mystery suspense novels.
