VJ Books Presents Author David Poyer!

David Poyer David Poyer is the author of more than 40 books including the Dan Lenson naval fiction novels and the Tiller Galloway thrillers.

His most recent novel, Arctic Sea, is the next thrilling entry in the Dan Lenson future war series where new threats surface in the aftermath of WWIII - this time, in the remote waters of the Arctic.

Poyer knew he was meant to be a writer by age four. In speaking with Modern Signed Books podcast host Roger Nichols, he reflects on how his mother introduced him to books early in life and when he asked her where books came from, she revealed that writers write them. From that moment on, he knew writing was what he was meant to do with his life. You can listen to the entire interview with David Poyer below.

Poyer has served on active or reserve sea duty in the Atlantic, Arctic, Pacific, Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. He has also done shore duty at the Pentagon, Surface Warfare Development Group, and Joint Forces Command, as well as in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain. He began writing during his military career and published his first novel in 1980. He is known for naval fiction, but has also dabbled in science fiction and alternate histories. A few of his books were written under the pen name David Andreissen.

Now retired from the Navy, Poyer teaches writing. He has lectured at Annapolis, Flagler College, University of Pittsburgh, Old Dominion University, the Armed Forces Staff College, the University of North Florida, Christopher Newport University, among others. At present, he is a fellow at the Virginia Center of Creative Arts, teaches in the MA/MFA in Creative Writing program at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre and at the Ossawbaw Island Writers' Retreat. He has also been a guest on PBS's "Writer to Writer'' series and on Voice of America, and has appeared at many literary events.

Poyer was born in 1949 in DuBois, Pennsylvania. Following high school, he attended the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. He later continued his education at George Washington University, where he earned his masters degree.

Poyer received the Surface Navy Special Recognition Award for 2018. He lives in Virginia with his wife, novelist Lenore Hart. They have one daughter.
