David Fine

Author of Aggie Boyle and The Lost Beauty

David Fine is not your typical author. When he was young he never liked English classes, and he definitely didn’t like to write. When growing up, he spent his time playing sports and video games. He even had one of the first hand held video games, Electronic Quarterback. You would think that all of this would change when he grew up. You would be wrong. He still loves his sports, with football being his favorite. He still plays his video games on his PS4, XBOX One and even a PS Vita. Some of the games he likes are the Madden series, MLB The Show, NBA2K, and the Uncharted Series.


You might be asking yourself if he didn’t like to write, how did he become an author? He went the unusual route. David had a daughter who loved bedtime stories. His wife would read their daughter published books while David would make up original stories on the spot almost every night. He did this by listening to how his daughter’s day went and telling a story based on what happened to her that day.

Most of his stories would just pop right into his head. He often told her short stories that only lasted that night, but he also made up longer stories that lasted throughout the week.

There was one big problem, his stories were supposed to put her to sleep. They usually had the opposite effect. She always wanted to hear more instead of sleeping. It didn’t help that he usually ended the story for the day on a cliffhanger.


So, getting to the author part — it was not until he hit a milestone birthday that his wife saw he was a little bit down. She straightened him out and told him that age was just a number and he could do anything he wanted if he set his mind to it. Both his wife and daughter reminded him about the stories he made up each night. They had always urged him to write them down, but he never did because he was a little lazy. They finally convinced him to pick one of the stories and just start writing. And that is what he finally did. Not knowing if it was going to be good or not, he just wrote. And out came Aggie Boyle and The Lost Beauty. He liked writing so much that there will be more books in the Aggie Boyle series

Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
