Dave Riese -smaller

 

I’ve been writing off and on since college. However, working, maintaining a house, helping to raise two children…you get the idea: I never seemed to have the time (or the energy) to get serious about writing.

I grew up in Arlington, Massachusetts and attended Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, majoring in English literature. During my junior year, I studied at Oxford University and traveled to Russia, France, Italy and Greece during vacations.

After college, I enlisted in the Air Force one step ahead of my draft board’s invitation to join the army and continue my travels in Vietnam. I served in the Philippines at Clark Air Base and at Andrews AFB outside Washington D.C.

After my discharge from the military, I began a career in information technology. My wife and I moved north of Boston in 1975. We have two married children, a daughter living in New Hampshire and a son in Rhode Island. We have four grandchildren.

I retired after working 35 years in IT at several Boston-area financial companies. At the time, I told myself, “You call yourself a writer, but you’ve never done the hard, daily work.” Since then I’ve spent 4 – 6 hours a day writing, usually in a local coffee shop.
