About the Author
David Jacob lives in Northern California with his wife Mitzi, and four grown children who are nearby, yet not always attentive when called. Remembering Nygel is David's first completed novel, as many other first chapters lay dormant in his computer's hard drive. After 27 years in the business world, selling legal drugs for a major pharmaceutical manufacturer, and listening to mandatory hooey, an early retirement has helped him to focus on his life-long dream of finishing Nygel. David has a degree in journalism, and did work as an actual reporter for a short time, many years ago, writing local political stories that few read, in a small California town, before realizing it was too uninspiring to endure the paltry wages that were paid to him. His small-circle claim to fame arrived in the form of an annual Christmas Letter, that is often mocking and irreverent, but has been in high demand by many of his relatives, friends and colleagues for several years. Currently a second novel and book of poetry are threatening exposure, but as yet have not left the hard drive. David is 58 years old and is feeling it. He is grateful for modern technology, which has provided a new and exciting creative freedom for many withering bastards, like himself, who seek an unfettered outlet.
