David A. Crossman
David A. Crossman is a modern-day polymath who – in common with polymaths throughout time – has yet to be sufficiently beguiled by any one sphere of endeavor to apply himself to it exclusively. As a result, he’s a best-selling novelist, an award-winning lyricist and composer, a writer of short stories, screenplays, teleplays, poems, and children’s books, a television producer/director (also award-winning), a video producer, radio/television talent, award-winning graphic, computer graphic artist, advertising copywriter, videographer, publisher, music producer, musician, singer, performer and … well, you get the picture. He’s shiftless – in all things but his devotion to Barbara his wife of…well, let’s say over 35 years and leave it at that.
His newest projects are another album of contemporary adult music, the graphic novel and audio book of Bean and Ab’s first adventure, The Secret of the Missing Grave and three new books; The Riddle of Misery Light – Bean and Ab’s fourth mystery; Coda – Albert’s third mystery, and The Night of the Full Moon Catch – about eight seventy and eighty-somethings who “escape” from a nursing home on the coast of Maine for one last fling aboard The Mary, the fishing boat that gave them their living for over fifty years and is slated to be sunk as part of a breakwater. “I love these old gents. I grew up with men like them and, every day, I become more like them. (They’re not as crazy as I used to believe!)”
