David Arnold

Hi. I'm David.

I write stories and songs. I live in Lexington, Kentucky, with my (lovely) wife and our (boisterous) son. Previous "jobs" include freelance musician/producer, preschool teacher, barista, and stay-at-home dad. I'm a fierce believer in the power of kindness and community. I like pesto, Arcade Fire, indie bookstores, Middle-earth, GARP, Elliott Smith, Christmastime, and all things Sorkin. I don't like olives, liars, or wet socks.

My debut novel, MOSQUITOLAND, will be published by Viking/Penguin on March 3, 2015. My second book is tentatively set for a fall 2016 release. (You can read about them here.) I am represented by Dan Lazar at Writers House.
