Hello, my name is David. I am a writer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. You can find my work at The AtlanticThe WeekThe New York TimesMental FlossVox, and Foreign Policy, among many other places. A roundup of my strongest pieces that best represent my work can be found here.

I am presently writing my next book, ONE INCH FROM EARTH, which will be published by Custom House, an imprint of HarperCollins. It is about scientists who study the outer planets of the solar system, and will be finished eventually, I hope. You can reach me by email at davidwbrown (at) gmail (dot) com.
