David Atwell

Dave is originally from Washington D.C. and has moved around due to being a part of a Marine Corps family. His parents were stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina in 1983, and Dave has been there since.

After nearly thirty years in managing grocery/retail stores, he began to write. He has always had a passion for writing but rarely had time to do it. Historical fiction, horror, westerns and suspense have always been his favorite topics to write about. He has written several stories that have never made print.


Dave’s series, “Rotting Frontier”, takes from all four genres. “Rotting Frontier” follows a stranded family in the plains of the Dakota Territory, in 1866. They soon discover the curse that is ravaging the plains, known as the Hunger.

When he’s not writing, Dave is into sports, attending cons with his family, embracing his inner nerd and enjoying the benefits of living in coastal North Carolina. He often says that North Carolina is the greatest state to live in if you’re a geek. 


Keep calm and Chive on!
