My name is David Kummer. I'm a young writer who leans towards horror, mystery, dystopian, and young adult fiction. I live in Madison, Indiana, a small town on the Ohio River, with lots of history and settings around here that influence my books.

I always answer whenever readers email me, so reach out and check out my blog at https://davidkummer.com. I've got a handful of books for you to choose from, all of them inexpensive. Reviews and shares are super appreciated.

You may have read some great authors before and some fascinating books, but you've never had an experience like this.

I wrote another 13 stories and updated it so that now it's closer to 200.

My first novel, however, was "She" and that was over 200 pages long. It's a decent-sixed novel.(less)

The Last Word for a While

First, Background



It feels like forever since I’ve written something new. Besides the short stories I posted recently, it’s been a long time. Until We Burn came out way back in May of 2018, almost 2 years ago now.
