David Rhodes lives in Bloomington, Indiana with his wife and twin boys. He works in the Public Safety and Institutional Assurance department at Indiana University, owns and operates Ryukyu Kyusho Martial Arts and plays music with the band Elmo Taylor (on iTunes). He has been interested in science fiction since he began reading Jules Verne novels as a young boy. When he was eleven years old he found a small piece of rock that someone had hammered a few letters into with typeset letters. This immediately started him thinking about a story where people went back in time and left a message for the future. Fifty-two years later he finally felt he had the skill needed to write a book and produced the popular Written in Stone. David has now self-published Dreams Like Tears and Shawnee Falls and is currently working on his next novel (a sequel to Written in Stone). David says he has ideas for a thousand more books. He is also known to exaggerate.
