About David Fitz-Gerald
David Fitz-Gerald writes fiction that is grounded in history and soars with the spirits. Dave enjoys getting lost in the settings he imagines and spending time with the characters he creates. Writing historical fiction is like making paintings of the past. He loves to weave fact and fiction together, stirring in action, adventure, romance, and a heavy dose of the supernatural with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. He is an Adirondack 46-er, which means he has hiked all of the highest peaks in New York State, so it should not be surprising when Dave attempts to glorify hikers as swashbuckling superheroes in his writing.
My favorite climb is Algonquin Mountain in the Adirondacks. On the list of 46, it's number 2. I've got a little store at Zazzle featuring notecards, and assorted other products. The link below should take you directly there.
As a writer, I can't resist sending my characters to this wonderful little body of water near Lake Placid, New York. I think this picture captures a perfect summer's day at Copperas Pond.
