About the Author

David Derrico was born just north of Miami, Florida, and developed his appreciation for complex moral issues while receiving a degree in philosophy from the University of Florida in Gainesville. He wrote his first novel, Right Ascension, before attending law school at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). Right Ascension was first published by Bookbooters Press in 2000, and garnered its inaugural eBook of the Year Award.

Derrico wrote his second novel, Declination, during law school, while he was probably supposed to be studying. Nonetheless, he graduated, passed the California Bar Exam, and worked as an attorney at a large, international law firm in Los Angeles for several years. While practicing law (all that practice actually made him pretty good at it), he managed to write some short stories and start work on his third novel, The Twiller.

Recently, Derrico retired from his “day job” as a big-firm attorney and moved back to South Florida, where he finished that third novel. The Twiller follows the (mis)adventures of an unlikely hero and his unique companion on a comic romp around the galaxy. Derrico maintains a website with reviews, excerpts, current news, a blog, and purchasing information for all of his novels and other works at

I loved laughing along with Ian and his travel-companion, the Twiller through a unique and bizarre universe. This story is funny, interesting, touching and I personally feel it has a good dose of "food for thought" if you have a mind to dig your spoon a little deeper. I once read somewhere that 80% of all jokes are true and I kind of feel a little like that about The Twiller. While it is an entertaining, light read, I think it definitely hits on some unfortunate aspects of modern society. I am looking forward to a sequel!

Funny, engrossing, and a great escape. The cover hooked me: seeing that little yellow being with the big eyes made me wonder what the book would be like. Our unassuming hero finds himself abducted by aliens, meets his yellow sidekick with its one-word vocabulary, and goes adventuring around the universe in his quest to get home to earth. Along the way, we peer in on him with the author and laugh with him and at him. The poor guy (our hero, not the author) stumbles and bumbles but really shows his stuff. Read it for the story, or read it for the laughs. It's a fun ride, either way.
