Meet Dave

dave124-200x300Hello, I’m Dave Amaditz, a YA novelist writing about… Real stories. Real life. I am represented by Amy Tipton of Signature Literary Agency.

When I write, I hope to transport the reader into the world I’ve created so that they will be able to experience life through the eyes of my characters and the places they live… at least for a little while.

What happens when I’m not writing, thinking about writing or studying to improve my writing? Of course, I’m reading some of my favorite authors and allowing them to transport me into the world they have created.

There are other things, too. I’m busy in my local community, currently serving my 15th year on my local school board. Since a 1983 diving accident that left me a quadriplegic, I’ve worked as a social worker, teacher, and other odd jobs. I’m passionate about regaining my ability to walk, and have ambulated with assistance as far as 400 feet. I continue working on my therapy at home three or more days a week with the help of my wife of 27 years and my six children.
