Hi, I'm Dave Terruso.

I'm a mystery novelist and professional stand up comedian based in Philadelphia.

My debut novel, Cube Sleuth, was published by Full Fathom Five Digital.

As a stand up, I've opened for acts including Richard Lewis, Gilbert Gottfried, Dana Gould, Tim Meadows, Colin Quinn, and Maria Bamford.

I've been featured on the RISK! Podcast, episode 350 Out of Bounds.

I'm currently writing and publishing a novel/graphic novel hybrid mystery series called Alter Ego. It's a supernatural mystery about a detective hired to uncover the secret identity of Blue, the world's first and only superhero.

You can read the first two chapters for free at AlterEgoBlue.com and enter your email there to get notified

To break the block, I go for a long walk or run on the treadmill, get my blood pumping while I'm thinking about the next scene I'm writing. If that doesn't work I'll watch a movie or play a video game. Distraction and movement are my tools. I try to never just sit in front of the computer and stare at a blank page.(less)
