David Byrne is...David A. Byrne, forgot the “A” the first time. The “A” is important, because some guy with the name David Byrne had to be in a band called the Talking Heads and make the name somewhat famous before I was born. The nerve. Ok, so the Talking Heads are great, but come on!

Writing is David's passion. It keeps him up at night. Writer of screenplays, prose, comics, song lyrics, whatever flows. Even copy for real estate listings; really, really terrific copy…really the best. Maybe not so much.

David's debut novel, Shady Place, was a finalist in the 2016 Launch Pad Manuscript competition. His first comic book, The Couch, launched in late 2017.
