David started life in Columbus Ohio as the son of an Air Force officer. His father George retired in Stillwater Oklahoma, and David attended High school in Stillwater before joining the US Air Force in 1984. While serving, David was fortunate to have travelled the world with his wife Cara, and their children, KC, Meagan and Zakary. Living in England, Turkey, Germany, Greece, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, as well as the US States, Missouri, Illinois, and New Mexico, helped David to learn how other people lived, loved and prospered. David retired from the Air Force in 2004 and settled in the small town of Weston Missouri.
All of Dave and Cara's children were born on Air Force bases and they were the inspiration for the stories contained in The Walker Chronicles. David has a passion for cooking (his chicken and waffles is to die for) and the NFL football, Kansas City Chiefs. Along with his family and their dog Hamlet, David enjoys the simple life in America's heartland.
