David Anderson is a freelance writer and a Bible Geek. His two favorite subjects for writing are Biblical Commentary and Biblical Fiction. He even got a Masters of Theological Studies and a Masters of Theology degree just so he would have the opportunity to read and translate from the Hebrew and Greek texts. Doing this took his imagination places it never would have gone otherwise, which for writing is very important.
He is a member of the Foothills Writers Guild. He is the winner of the Juanita Garrison Prize for Unpublished Fiction. He would like to see Biblical Fiction recognized as a separate category from Christian Fiction. Christian Fiction should be seen as a subgenre of Biblical Fiction. Examples of Biblical Fiction that are not Christian Fiction would include Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent and Ron Hansen’s Atticus. Anderson might read and write Christian Fiction, but focuses more on Biblical Fiction.

He has learned you do not choose writing as a vocation. It chooses you.
