Hello, my name is David. I am a writer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. You can find my work at The AtlanticThe WeekThe New York TimesVox, 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 working on my next book, ONE INCH FROM EARTH, which will be published by Custom House, an imprint of HarperCollins. It tells the true story of a group of scientists who studied Europa, Jupiter’s ocean moon, needed to know more, and spent twenty years convincing NASA to send a spaceship there. It will be finished eventually, I hope. [UPDATE: The manuscript has been submitted to my editor!] You can reach me by email at davidwbrown (at) gmail (dot) com.
